'American Pie' actor Jason Biggs doesn't feel the roles he gets offered are as "grown up" as he feels
Jason Biggs doesn't feel his movie roles have "grown up".
The 36-year-old actor - who is best known for playing Jim Levenstein in the 'American Pie' movie series - is enjoying appearing in TV drama 'Orange is the New Black' because it is the first time he has played a part that felt mature.
He said: "It is different, I don't know whether I have a preference in general but for now, at this point in my life, it is preferable.
"I love that goofy comedy and I want to do more of it but for me right now I feel I personally grew up and for a while the roles I was doing haven't quite grown up with me and this is the first one where I feel like it has."
Jason has promised fans of 'Orange is the New Black' will be gripped by the new series.
He added in a radio interview: "The cliffhanger will be resolved fairly early on and I think you can expect more of the same in terms of the wonderful character back stories, we have a new villain that shakes things up a little bit. There's more Piper and Alex, always drama with those two."
