American Pie star unrecognisable in interview on The Morning Show as he reveals why he nearly turned down iconic role | The Sun

THIS American Pie star looked completely unrecognisable during a TV interview.

Thomas Ian Nicholson, 43, played Kevin in the comedy film series when he was just 20 years old.

Now 25 years after the first of the four American Pie movies hit the big screens, the actor has left fans shocked with his latest TV interview.

Remembered as the short-haired brunette heart-throb from the 1999 films, the star left his long, wavy hair draped behind his shoulders, and showed off his new grey beard on the show.

In The Morning Show interview, he spoke to the hosts Kylie Gillies and Matt Doran about his iconic role in the sex comedy films and why he almost turned it down.

He said: “I first thought that it was a bit dirty, maybe something for the adult channels,” he said.

“So I sort of threw it in the trash and called my agent and said, ‘Don’t send me this’… That is the truth.”

But according to the American Pie actor, producers "really wanted" him to audition for the film and pushed him to read the entire script.

“I gave the script a whole read through and I realised that it was great, there was a lot of heart to it, so I auditioned,” he said.

“Each film that we did, we would have more fun, I would say off-camera, especially as we started getting onto locations and things.”

Nicholas also acted alongside the award-winning actress Jennifer Coolidge who played the role of Stifler's mum.

Coolidge got her big break playing the part that made fans across the world "fall in love with Stifler's mum", said the star.

But despite her global success in the entertainment industry, Nicholas revealed that she would "always be Stifler's mum" to him and revealed the most memorable experience he had with the actress on set.

The first American Pie film followed a storyline that involved Stifler’s mum having a relationship with her son’s friend, Finch.

Eddie Kaye Thomas, who played Finch, and Coolidge ended up “becoming actual roommates in real life”, Nicholas explained.

“Their favourite part about living together was when they would order take-out,” Nicholas said.

“So when the food delivery person would come and they would answer the door, both of them, the food delivery person would be like, ‘Am I really looking at Finch and Stifler’s mum?’

“And they would be like, ‘What’s up?’”

Since American Pie, Nicholas has played roles in Halloween: Resurrection, Sherman's Way, and even made an appearance in a Bring Me The Horizon music video where he plays a doctor who gets stabbed in the eye.
