SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Like a lot of Giants fans, Jason Biggs had doubts about whether New York would make it to the playoffs.
"Midway through the regular season, I questioned," the 29-year-old "American Pie" actor said. "Inconsistent might be the best word (to describe them)."
But Biggs, now starring in the new film "Over Her Dead Body," is doubting his team no more. Decked out in Giants gear at an Audi Hole-in-One Challenge at a private home in neighboring Scottsdale, he predicted a win by the Giants over the New England Patriots in Sunday's Super Bowl.
Gabrielle Union, whose screen credits include 2005's "The Honeymooners," gave the edge to the Patriots.
"The fact that they won (their last playoff game) with wide receivers who nobody heard of says volumes," the 34-year-old actress said Wednesday.
Union and Biggs joined "Entourage" star Adrian Grenier, Molly Sims, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, and retired NFL legends Jim Brown and Ronnie Lott at the Audi challenge, which raised about $15,000 for McNabb and Lott's charities, organizers said.
The Audi event was one of dozens of celebrity-soaked events taking place in the days leading up to the Super Bowl. Though plenty of A-list stars were set to host soirees in the Phoenix area, Union said there was no particular event she was craving to attend.
"We just end up at the ones where it's easy to get to," she laughed. "It's the same party over and over."
Though Biggs is going to the Super Bowl, he'll miss the orgy of pre-game parties. He was due to fly back to Los Angeles for the weekend and return for Sunday's game.
"I'm not going to be part of the pomp and circumstance," he said. "I wish I could stay."
