Seann William Scott jokes he'd like to see Stifler have a gender identity crisis in new American Pie

Seann William Scott joked that he'd liked to see Stifler have a gender identity crisis if there was to ever be another American Pie movie.
Just last week (9 July), marked 24 years since American Pie was released in theatres in the States, which would later go on to be a franchise that changed comedy as we know it forever.
Clearly still a cult classic a whole two decades and countless spin-offs, later - it's clear the actor behind the legendary character celebrated for his razor-sharp wit, quotable one-liners and very dodgy sense of humour has some alternative ideas on how he would go about a follow-up.
The host began: "You're constantly working, you've done so much.
"We have to just bring it up but Stifler and American Pie franchise - is that something? Do you still get offers for them? Like, 'Hey, we got another idea, we got another idea'."
Speaking of the film's creators, Rosenbaum continued: "Do they still throw that at you? Or is that kind of [...] you're not interested in that anymore?"
The actor then revealed that while he 'loves that character', he's aware that any further addition to the franchise would need to follow a 'perfect idea'.
He said: "You know what? I love that character."
Scott explained that after the last film, which was released in 2012, he felt it was a 'great bookend' to the character.
"I didn't think it'd be fun to play the character again," he continued.
However, 'as time went on' and 'as the world has changed', Scott seemed to have a change of heart, adding that he 'thought that seeing that character today could be really interesting'.
"We were just kind of talking about some ideas, because we thought it would have to be a perfect idea [...] because obviously, so much has changed. Comedies have changed."
Scott then opened up about how the character of Stifler 'allowed [him] to do so much'.
"He could kind of say so many things that were inappropriate, but yet, you still kind of loved him," he said, "And there was like physical comedy and all sorts of stuff that I don't really get a chance to do with other characters.
"So even just selfishly, you know, I think that would be fun, but I don't know if they'll ever [do it].
"I think comedies have changed so much that that movie would have to change and adapt and be more relatable."
Proposing a potential idea, Rosenbaum then spitballed: "Maybe Stifler has an identity or a gender identity crisis."
"That's the movie I want to see!" Scott then joked. "You just cracked the code."
Well, I guess we'll just have to wait and see if that idea comes to fruition.
