CELEBRITY INTERVIEW:As the face of sex-comedy franchise American Pie, Jason Biggs became synonymous with gross-out humour. Now he's getting serious with a political movie called Grassroots, which is released on Friday, November 9. He talks about reining in the humour, Jake Gyllenhaal's dad acting as his mentor, and why he felt more vulnerable doing this movie than he ever has getting naked in American Pie.
