LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Not everyone is getting an equal piece of the “American Pie.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s sources, the returning stars of the upcoming “American Reunion” pulled in a wide array of salaries to film the fourth installment in the series.
Sources told the trade magazine that Jason Biggs, who plays Jim, and Seann William Scott, who plays prankster Steve Stifler, were brought back with a $5 million pay day each.
They were also reportedly given a piece of the box office action.
Next in the salary scale is “How I Met Your Mother” actress Alyson Hannigan, who is taking home $3 million, a salary close to that obtained by Eugene Levy, who plays’ Jim’s dad, per THR.
On the opposite end of the scale, according to THR’s sources was Tara Reid. The mag claimed the actress – arguably one of the biggest names in the cast when the original “American Pie” came out in 1999 — took home around $250,000.
Meanwhile Chris Klein (Oz), Natasha Lyonne (Jessica), Eddie Kaye Thomas (Finch), Jennifer Coolidge (Stifler’s mom) and Shannon Elisabeth (Nadia) reportedly earned between $500,000 - $750,000 each.
Despite THR’s sources, a studio rep told the publication the salary numbers were “inaccurate.”
“American Reunion” hits theaters on April 6, 2012.
