Katrina Bowden Kisses Chris Klein -- And Tells All!
Joining one of the most iconic casts is no easy task, but from the moment 30 Rock actress Katrina Bowden met the American Pie gang, she felt right at home. She rounded out the cast for American Reunion, the latest edition in the series, and will play the drunk, party-obsessed girlfriend of Chris Klein's Oz.
While most of the filming was fun and games, she wasn't so thrilled about the kissing scenes! So what was it like locking lips with Mr. Klein?
"It was awkward and weird, but he’s a nice guy and so sweet... We have a couple kissing scenes, so we just tried to do it well the first time, so it’d be done with. It’s just so awkward forcing a kiss in front of all these people," she told Celebuzz at the Motorola Mobility launch party.
In the film, the Pie cast reunites in East Great Falls, Michigan for their high school reunion -- and of course, they're back to their old antics. Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Alyson Hannigan, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Chris Klein, Eugene Levy, Tara Reid, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Jennifer Coolidge and Mena Suvari all return for the film, set to debut April 6, 2012.
Katrina believes fans of the original films will love the reunion. "It’s such an iconic group of people and the fact that the entire cast was back was really awesome. It’s going to be really funny. There are lots of throwbacks to the original film," she says.
With a cast full of pranksters, Katrina admits she was thrown off a few times when she became the center of pranks -- even during key scenes.
“At one point in the film, I'm talking to Chris and all of a sudden the boom mic comes down and hits me in the side of the head. At first I thought I was going crazy, really getting into my drunk character, and here Jason Biggs is poking us in the middle of the scene," she recalled, laughing.
