<i>Napoleon Dynamite</i>'s Jon Heder to Star in New Fox Comedy

Jon Heder, the actor known for his roles in Napoleon Dynamite and Blades of Glory, has been cast to star in the pilot for Fox’s new comedy Here’s Your Damn Family. The television show will also star Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle) and David James Elliott (JAG) as Heder’s mother and stepfather.

Heder will play a 30-something who still lives with his mom, and the show’s sitcom-approved conflict comes when his mother remarries a man with three teen kids. The pilot is being written by Ricky Blitt (Movie 43) and Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory) will produce the pilot with Stephen McPherson.
