American Pie actor Jason Biggs is determined to become a hang-gliding expert after taking a weekend course in Costa Rica.

The 25-year-old star has become an overnight fanatic after taking to the skies during a break in Central America.

He says, "I had never done it before. We probably got to 2,000 feet. It was really incredible.

"I had to go tandem with someone I didn't know and you're in this sleeping bag contraption. I felt like a joey, a marsupial. It's a strange situation."
