Napoleon Dynamite Cast Reunites on Tenth Anniversary of Cult Comedy: Photo
Break out your "Vote for Pedro" T-shirt and fry up some tots—the cast of Napoleon Dynamite is back together!
The stars of the 2004 cult comedy reunited this week in celebration of Napoleon Dynamite's 10th anniversary and in promotion of the release of the anniversary Blu-Ray/DVD combination pack Napoleon Dynamite: 10 Sweet Years… of Liger Magic, Tots & Great Skills.
Looking all grown up, Napoleon Dynamite star Jon Heder snapped a friendly photo with three of his former castmates. The actor, 36, wrapped his arms around Tina Majorino, who played Deb, Haylie Duff, who played Summer Wheatly, and Efren Ramirez, the man behind the famed Pedro character.
Standing in front of a brick wall, the Napoleon Dynamite stars looked cute and casual in jeans, T-shirts, and plaid flannel button-downs.
"Celebrating 10 sweet years of #napoleondynamite," reads the caption on the photo, posted by Hill+Knowlton Strategies senior account executive Stephanie Kahan via Twitter.
The group is hyped to hang again next month, when they make an appearance at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on August 7 for a screening of the flick for the opening of the Sundance Next Fest. The gig will be a bit of a homecoming for the actors, as Napoleon Dynamite first premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.
At the time of its initial release, Napoleon Dynamite took off like an all-powerful liger, bringing in $44.5 million at the domestic box office on a budget of just $400,000. It also earned critical acclaim, receiving nominations for the Grammys, Independent Spirit Awards, and MTV Movie Awards.
