Playing a nerd Dynamite


DELAWARE, Ohio -- The star of the cult hit Napoleon Dynamite said making the film gave him the chance to "celebrate the nerd within me."

"We created (the characters) from ourselves and from people we knew and experiences we had," said Jon Heder, 27. "It was fun to celebrate the nerd within me."

The movie -- made for $400,000 -- grossed more than $45 million US at the box-office and has made more than $104-million in DVD sales.

Heder stars alongside Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo in Just Like Heaven, which is to be released Sept. 16.
