Jason Biggs' Biggest Regret Is Turning Down This Beloved Role

Jason Biggs is opening up about one of his biggest regrets from his career.

The 42-yea-old actor, best known for his role in the American Pie movie series, says that he turned down the role of Ted Mosby on the CBS series How I Met Your Mother.

The role went to Josh Radnor and the series was a huge hit that lasted for nine seasons.

“I was offered the role. Yes,” Jason said in an interview on SiriusXM’s The Covino & Rich Show. “I was offered the role and it’s probably my biggest regret, you know, on passing. I think I was in a phase of, at the time — it sounds so obnoxious to say right now – but at the time it was like, ‘Okay, do I want to do TV?’ I don’t know that I was quite ready to go that route.”

Jason added, “Big picture, I have no regrets. Right? I’m very lucky, very fortunate. I’m still here. That’s number one. But yeah, if I had to pick out something I wish I had done differently, I would’ve taken that gig for sure. Absolutely.”

Alyson Hannigan, who played Jason‘s wife in the American Pie movies, starred in the series.

“We’ve never really talked about it,” Jason said. “I don’t know that she knows actually. Yeah, I don’t know if she knows.”

Here’s a list of roles that actors actually do regret taking!
