Here's Your Damn Family Pilot Cast Jon HederJon Heder, Napoleon Dynamite himself, has signed on to Fox’s Here’s Your Damn Family. (Gosh!)

Heder will play the thirtysomething son of Jane Kaczmarek’s character, a guy who still lives with his mom and whose world is rocked when she gets married — and her guy and his three kids move in.

David James Elliott (JAG) recently was cast as Mike, Heder’s character’s new stepfather.

Since his 2004 breakout film, Heder’s TV work includes an episode of My Name Is Earl and several voiceover gigs, including a Fox animated series based on Napoleon Dynamite.

Family, a half-hour, multi-cam comedy, will be executive-produced by Ricky Blitt (Family Guy), Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory) and Stephen McPherson.

  • My first thought was how in the heck Jane Kaczmarek old enough to play Jon Heder’s mom but then I looked it up and saw that Jane Kaczmarek is 58 and Jon Heder is 36 so its entirely believable casting-and not in a West Virginia way. Makes me feel old.
