The film became a huge success and Scott found himself an overnight sensation. He went on to reprise the role of Stifler in the film’s three sequels, American Pie 2, American Wedding, and American Reunion. By the early 2000s, Scott was a big celebrity and was being offered roles in many high-profile movies.

What is Seann William Scott doing now?

Over the past few years, Seann William Scott has worked hard to show fans the extent of his acting range and abilities. In 2018, Scott landed a leading role in the TV series Lethal Weapon, playing former CIA operative Wesley Cole. He acted on the show for well over a year, earning a lot of new fans in the process. Also in late 2019, Scott acted in his most nail-biting project to date, the twisted horror film Bloodline

In the film, Scott plays a counselor who murders the abusive fathers of the patients he sees. While the role was well outside his wheelhouse, Scott earned praise from fans who loved his take on a complicated killer with decent intentions. For Scott’s longtime fans, however, his work in Bloodline just proves that he’s one of the most talented character actors working in the entertainment business today and that he’s much more than the role he played in American Pie
