WHEN IN ROME

JON HEDER (Lance) became an overnight sensation and gained an instant cult following with his feature film debut in the title role of the offbeat comedy "Napoleon Dynamite.” Heder's endearing portrayal of the somewhat nerdy high schooler who helps his friend Pedro get elected class president was a huge financial success and brought him two MTV Movie Awards, one in the category of Breakthrough Male and a second for Best Musical Performance for his crowd-pleasing election-night dance. Heder met "Napoleon Dynamite” director Jared Hess while both were studying film at Brigham Young University; the director first cast him in the short film "Peluca.”

In March 2007, Heder starred opposite Will Ferrell in the hit comedy "Blades of Glory,” which has taken in close to $120 million at the domestic box office. He also stars in "Mama's Boy,” opposite Diane Keaton and Jeff Daniels.

In summer 2008, Heder returned to animation in Columbia Pictures' "Surf's Up” after previously voicing a role in Columbia Pictures' "Monster House.”

Heder also starred in the feature films "The Benchwarmers,” "School for Scoundrels” and "Just Like Heaven,” with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo.

In late 2007, Heder, his twin brother Dan, and older brother Doug formed production company Greasy Entertainment with a first-look deal at Universal Pictures. It is the realization of a long-held goal for the brothers, who all studied film at BYU. The company is developing both live-action and animation feature film properties (Heder and his twin brother both studied computer animation in college).
