If you’re a fan of the 2004 theatrical smash Napoleon Dynamite, you’ll be happy to hear that the Gallo Center for the Arts’ live event, featuring a screening of the film followed by a discussion with a trio of its stars, has been rescheduled. It’ll be held February 13, 2021, having been rescheduled from its original April 2020 date due to social distancing guidelines, as we battle the novel coronavirus.
By next February, we’ll hopefully be looking at this whole thing from the rear view mirror, and we will be more than ready to yuck it up with Napoleon and his band of misfits.
In anticipation of the live event in Modesto, California, I had the opportunity to sit down with the film’s star, Jon Heder, for the April 2020 issue of The Gallo Center Magazine. Heder warmly shared memories of making the film, and I got a glimpse of the guy beneath the most unruly afro that’s ever sat atop a white boy’s head.
Now, are you gonna finish those tots?
