This is the scenario that now confronts Australian writer-director Matthew Newton, who is scheduled to screen “Who We Are Now” at SXSW next month in its U.S. premiere, and who has a history of multiple arrests and charges for stalking, battery, assault, and domestic assault.

American Pie Stars Reunite Over Jason Biggs' Baby Son

American Pie Stars Reunite Over Jason Biggs' Baby Son
Jason Biggs and Eugene Levy, who played father and son, respectively, in 1999's American Pie and its many sequels, reunited to introduce 71-year old Levy to Biggs' 3-month old son. It's hard to believe, but the American Pie franchise is nearly 20-years old. It's been 19 years since the world was introduced to band camp, Steven Stifler, and some gross stuff done with an apple pie. The movie was expected to be a marginal success at the box office, but it ended up being a worldwide hit, becoming the 20th highest grossing movie of 1999 in the United States alone and the number one highest grossing movie in Germany in 2000.

Jason Biggs and his wife, Jenny Mollen, recently had a new baby and the couple invited Eugene Levy over to meet the newborn. Both Mollen and Biggs took to social media to share the mini-American Pie reunion between the onscreen father and son.

Jason Biggs' Son Lazlo Laughs for the First Time for American Pie 'Grandfather' Eugene Levy
Jason Biggs is considered by many to be one of the funniest actors in Hollywood, but according to his baby son Lazlo, American Pie star Eugene Levy deserves the honor.

While Levy, 71, isn’t technically 3-month-old Lazlo’s grandfather, it is safe to say that since Levy played Biggs’ father in American Pie he’s already part of the family.

Jenny Mollen, 38, shared a sweet photo on Instagram Monday of Biggs, 39, Levy and Lazlo during a visit that Levy paid to the new family of four.

The couple’s oldest son, Sid, 3½, was eating an apple, which Mollen joked was “purely coincidental,

Odeya Rush & Michael Caine in First Trailer for Comedy 'Dear Dictator'

"Sometimes I feel like you're the only one who gets me." Cinedigm has released the trailer for an amusing indie comedy titled Dear Dictator, which has a goofy, perhaps ridiculous premise. Michael Caine plays a British-Caribbean dictator who is forced to leave his island nation. He decides to move in and hide out with his "pen pal" (is this the 90s?), a young rebellious teenage girl, as played by Odeya Rush (from The Giver, Goosebumps, Almost Friends, Lady Bird). Somehow they make this work in a weird way, and of course he helps teach her how to "start a revolution and overthrow the 'mean girls' in her high school." It's not as bad as it sounds, but it also doesn't look that good either. But, Michael Caine! He's always great, right? The cast includes Jason Biggs, Katie Holmes, Seth Green, and Jordyn Cavros. Check it out if you're intrigued. Here's
