Devon Sawa Reveals the Reason He Was Involved in Eminem’s “Stan” Video

Devon Sawa took to Twitter on Wednesday to answer a fan’s question why he was cast in Eminem’s iconic music video, Stan in 2000.

“Dre loved FD,” Sawa replied, noting Dr. Dre’s interest for the Final Destination franchise. The actor starred in the first movie of the horror series the same year Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP was released.

In the video, Stan is an obsessed fan of the rapper who wrote threatening letters to Eminem, neglects his pregnant girlfriend and ultimately drives his car off of a bridge with her inside in an effort to make the rapper notice him, ET reports.

Sawa, who recently starred on ABC drama series Somewhere Between, said he had little trouble harnessing the troubled character, saying, “I was already a little dark in my early 20s.” Despite the disturbing material, the atmosphere on the set of “Stan” was “a huge party.”
