Seann William Scott, star of American Pie, man of three first names and a redundant consonant, has checked into rehab.
“Seann William Scott has voluntarily admitted himself for proactive treatment to address health and personal issues,” the rep says of the American Pie star.
“He appreciates the support of his many fans at this time,” adds the rep, who did not disclose the nature of his issues. [THR]
Let’s say for the sake of argument that it was for alcohol. Okay, maybe it’s not an argument per se, I just have a really good, “HEY, STIFLER, HOW’S THE PALE ALE?” joke I want to use. i.e.:
Q: HEY STIFLER, HOW’S THE PALE ALE!!
A: I INDULGE IN IT LIBERALLY AND IT’S DESTROYING MY FAMILY!!
(*slide whistle*) Anyway, last we heard from him, his next projects were rumored to be the American Pie sequel/partial reboot, and Kevin Smith’s hockey movie, Hit Somebody. [UPDATE: They finally confirmed the long-planned American Pie sequel today, probably not-at-all coincidentally] And in case you’re keeping score at home, this makes him… still the most successful American Pie cast member. Incidentally, “Stifler Goes to Rehab” would make a great subtitle for the next one.
