Jon Heder of “Napoleon Dynamite” fame is an active member of LDS. In 2005 he took a strong stance on what roles he would play.
“I definitely try to direct my career down a path that won’t conflict with my values, and it can be very hard sometimes, especially when it limits your options and field of comfort, but the values and standards that I try to live by have been a part of my life since I was born, and I believe I will always receive blessings as long as I stick to my guns, ” he told LDS Living in 2012.
Heder attended Brigham Young University after his mission trip to Japan. Heder said he “abstains from alcohol, caffeine, and tobacco.”
