Jason Biggs hopes he will continue to get work in the film world, even though he is not Jewish. Fans of the actor know that over the years he has often portrayed Jewish characters, in fact probably throughout his career, but he is not actually Jewish.
Biggs spoke to the outlet this weekend and said he was concerned that if Hollywood “gets wind” of the truth, he would be out of work for the foreseeable future. The actor also spoke about the fact that the industry is now so focused on cultural appropriation.

Today Biggs is promoting his latest performance, Cherries Wild, a new game show on which he is the host. Participants answer questions about pop culture trivia and the American pie star is clearly a huge fan of the show and its style.
According to Biggs, he has much of the same knowledge that is required of the participants, in fact, he says he was only dumbfounded once upon hearing the questions. Biggs went on to say he was big on pop culture and knows a lot of random information.
“I’m a pretty big pop culture man,” Biggs noted, before going on to say that he and his wife often talk about who’s getting divorced in the entertainment industry. Fans of Biggs are happy to see his name in the headlines a bit more.
Yesterday Jason was in the news again about an interview he did, revealing a surprising detail about a role he once turned down. As previously reported, Biggs had a chance to play How I met your mother but he turned it down because he didn’t want to leave the movie world for television.
Jason said in the interview that it was probably his only major regret in his career where he wished he had done things a little differently. At the time, Jason didn’t want to give up on his leisurely filming schedule, which allowed him a few months off at a time, and besides, he loved making films.
However, he later realized that he wanted to do television anyway, and How I met your mother got huge when it hit the sky.
