Actor Efren Ramirez from Napoleon Dynamite

Actor Efren Ramirez is reprising his role as Pedro from the break away hit independent film, Napoleon Dynamite, on the new FOX animated show Napoleon Dynamite.  I honestly like the cartoon better than the movie!  Efren was a great guest sharing his views on the craft of acting, working with other actors, his relationship with Jon Heder and the Napoleon crew.  He compared working on a movie to to an animated show and talked about a book he co-wrote called Direct Your own life.  Of course among other topics, he mentioned a couple of other little films he was in such as Crank and Crank: High Voltage.  Ramirez also has a film coming out with Will Ferrell called Casa de mi Padre.

We show a couple of clips during the interview and if you haven’t seen the first few episodes of the new ND you can catch them on the FOX website.
