Eddie Kaye Thomas is back in theatres with a third slice of American Pie. The film may bear a different title (American Wedding), but Eddie's character Finch is back to his old antics with an appetite for sexual escapades...

Lindzi.com: I've heard you do some improvisation while on set. What was improvised that actually made the movie?

Eddie Kaye Thomas: There are a lot of lines. There's a huge Stifler dance sequence that we were all making up reactions to. A lot of the internet sequences in the first film were made up on the spot. The lesbian sequence in the second one had a lot of improv. In this one, we have a bachelor party sequence.

Lindzi.com: How's the whole Pie experience been?

Eddie Kaye Thomas: This time it was wild. We got to go to San Francisco to shoot some scenes. It's been a hell of a lot of fun. I've had the opportunity to be busier and do more stuff. That's pretty amazing as an actor when you keep your days busy.

Lindzi.com: How was it studying up on tantric sex for the second film?

Eddie Kaye Thomas: They sent me to a tantric workshop with a bunch of middle age people trying to expand their sexual prowess. I learned quite a few things. No one recognized me there. It wasn't really an American Pie crowd.

Lindzi.com: How are you like Finch?

Eddie Kaye Thomas: I don't think I'm like Finch at all. I've had people come up to me and talk to me about Buddhist meditation and all this tantric stuff… I don't know the hell they're talking about. I read the lines that are written down.

Lindzi.com: How would you describe yourself?

Eddie Kaye Thomas: It's weird to talk about yourself. I don't know how to describe myself. You'd just have to get to know me, I guess.

Lindzi.com: Where did your nickname Leaf come from?

Eddie Kaye Thomas: It started in high school. It stuck well. There's not a specific reason for it. My friends back in NY all call me Leaf. I've given different answers like, "When I play basketball, I float like a Leaf," but it's a bunch of crap. There's not really a good reason.

Lindzi.com: It seems Finch was ahead of his time with Stifler's mom. Dating older women seems to be the trend these days. Just look at Ashton and Demi. Are you, yourself, into older women?

Eddie Kaye Thomas: It sets the kind for all of mankind. I'm into all women. Any age. Over 18. I definitely haven't gone as far as someone's mother, but it's definitely been above my own age. I've never been with Demi Moore if that's what you're trying to ask me.

Lindzi.com: You're on your third piece of the Pie... would you make another?

Eddie Kaye Thomas: Adam Herz has been quoted as saying he wouldn't want to write another one. I wouldn't do it unless he wrote it. I think this will be the last one. I'd be very surprised if there was another one. Adam has had such original ideas for all three of them. I've been surprised every time. Before I got the third one, I thought, "What the hell are we going to do this time?" I think three is a completion.

Lindzi.com: What's next for you?

Eddie Kaye Thomas: Theatre is great work. It's another aspect of the business that I'd to keep myself busy with. I just want to stay busy. You have to submit yourself to the business. I hope my fate holds something nice in the future.
