Jason Biggs once met the director of Spider-Man to discuss being cast as the superhero.
The 37-year-old actor shot to fame thanks to his role as the apple pie loving Jim Levenstein in 1999 comedy movie American Pie and its spin offs American Pie 2 and American Wedding. He has also starred in hit show Orange is the New Black, but admitted in a recent interview that his career would look very different if he had landed one particular role he went for.
“I did meet the director and had a drink with him to discuss Spider-Man,” he told Kiis FM’s Kyle and Jackie O. “I don’t think I was ever really in the running but I had a good agent at the time and they got me a meeting. ."
It's unclear which version of the movie Jason was in the running for. Tobey Maguire starred as the webbed hero in 2002 movie Spider-Man and its 2004 and 2007 sequels, while Andrew Garfield took on the role in The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012 and its 2014 followup. Tom Holland will be portraying the superhero in the upcoming as yet untitled reboot.

Jason Biggs apologized for the offensive jokes he made on Twitter last week.
When does a joke stop being funny and instead turns into something downright offensive? Those that saw actor Jason Biggs' Twitter feed got an idea of what that would be after his comments regarding the Malaysia Airlines tragedy last week. Following the crash that took the lives of 298 people, the 34 year old Orange Is The New Black star tweeted out a string of jokes regarding the incident, starting with, "Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?" Immediate backlash was given to Biggs, who then defended himself, posting, "You don't have to think it's funny, or even be on my twitter page at all," and "Truly- you losers are literally trying to find s--t to get angry about. Channel your issues elsewhere." Eventually, the tweets were deleted and an apology was issued.
Jason Biggs issued an apology shortly after his offensive tweets
This isn't the first time that Biggs has offended the masses via his social media page. Although known for his typical raunchy and controversial comments, he's been known to take it a tad too far over the years. Just last month, he apologized for comments he made outside of Twitter on Joan Rivers' webshow, where he said that he'd rather save Lindsay Lohan over former American Pie co-star Tara Reid in a "live or die" situation because of Lohan's "nice boobs." "Tara's body—I don't know what's going on with it. I don't think she ever knows what's going on with it," Biggs said. This wasn't the first time he's apologized for body shaming Reid, however. Months earlier, he referred to her as a "hot mess," which caused Reid to call him out via her own Twitter.

Selena Gomez caused controversy on Saturday (19th July) when she uploaded an Instagram picture requesting her followers "Pray for Gaza". The comments she received in response are shocking and emphasise how divided many are on the subject. Others, fortunately, take a more level headed and pacifistic approach.
No conflict is more controversial or complex than that of Israel and Palestine. So it's not surprising that whichever side high profile figures appear to support, they earn both friends and enemies. Selena Gomez has fallen prey to this by posting a controversial image on Instagram.
