It's something of a shock to meet Seann William Scott. In person, he's almost the complete opposite of the IQ-challenged, sex-obsessed goofballs he's played to perfection in "American Pie," "Road Trip," "Dude, Where's My Car?," "Evolution" and "American Pie 2," which opens today. He's sweet and polite, and it's difficult to imagine the 24-year-old Scott as the obnoxious (if ultimately lovable) dunderhead Stifler he plays in the "American Pie" movies. He admits his cat is his best friend.

American audiences know Jay Baruchel as the nerdy kid from such films as "Knocked Up" and "She's Out of My League. " But with the new hockey comedy "Goon," the Montreal native is making the leap to feature film screenwriter. He and Evan Goldberg ("Superbad") teamed up to pay homage to Canada's national pastime with a movie that's violent on the ice and tenderhearted off — but it is thoroughly, unquestionably Canadian. "We made it for somebody, and we made it for Canadian kids," Baruchel, 29, said in a recent interview.

Trading in one baked good for that sugary, multilayered symbol of commitment, the wedding cake, the freewheeling "American Pie" crew reunites for one more round of debauchery. If you thought a wedding would temper the classic plot, consider the operative elements: Bachelor party. Sexy maid of honor who's not quite up for grabs. Alcohol-induced pre-ceremony confusion. And, as if one wedding weren't enough, there's a plot line involving Stifler's parents.

Halfway through the relentlessly idiotic but moderately entertaining teen comedy "Dude, Where's My Car?," you can almost imagine the film's director, megaphone in hand, screaming at the crew: "Bring on the dancing elephants!"
