Are you ready to “Vote for Pedro” again? This month, Fox is bringing back America’s favorite frizzy-haired slacker for a Napoleon Dynamite cartoon series. And best of all, they’ve recruited the original cast to provide voices, including Pedro himself, Efren Ramirez.
“It’s awesome, working with the whole gang again,” Efren told Access Hollywood. “The minute I got the call, I knew this was going to be good. This is a movie that has appealed to a large audience of all ages.”
Ramirez has actually built quite a career since he first donned his Pedro garb eight years ago. The 38-year-old star has popped up on George Lopez, Eastbound & Down, and will be joining Will Ferrell for the upcoming comedy Casa De Mi Padre.
But it’s clear he holds a special place for Pedro. Efren went on to say that he’s eternally grateful for the role and will proudly carry on the Napoleon legacy with the new animated show.
