Napoleon Dynamite 10th Anniversary Reunion
GOSH! Join Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez in a special Napoleon Dynamite Reunion to commemorate 10 years of the smash hit film. The panel will take place this afternoon in the South Ballroom at 5:00 p.m.
Napoleon Dynamite, filmed in Preston, Idaho, earned $44.5 million at the box office, more revenue than almost any other Sundance movie. For his appearance as Napoleon, Jon was paid just $1,000. In June 2005, he received the MTV Movie Award for Best Musical Performance and Breakthrough Male Performance for the role.
He has also acted in the films The Benchwarmers, School for Scoundrels, Blades of Glory, Mama’s Boy, and When in Rome, and provided voice talents in the animated films Monster House and Surf’s Up, as well as the Napoleon Dynamite animated series.
Aside from starring as Napoleon’s timid sidekick and student body president-elect, Pedro, Efren’s extensive TV shows include recurring roles on Disney’s Even Stevens and Fox’s Boston Public, and he has guest-starred on ER, The District and Judging Amy. He also appeared on MTV’s All You’ve Got, HBO’s Walkout and the Jack Black comedy Nacho Libre.

He is an accomplished voice actor, most prominently known for his role as Kronk in Disney’s The Emperor’s New Groove and its TV and video game spin-offs. He collaborated with Disney for several other roles, providing the voice for Steve Barkin in the Kim Possible series and Buzz Lightyear in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.
