While attending the Supanova Pop Culture Expo on Saturday, Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder revealed in an interview with MailOnline that he would love to be given the chance to play Aquaman in a big budget blockbuster film.

 

"I would totally love to play Aquaman, especially if they wanted me for the role and thought I had a good enough body."
 

Now I know what you're thinking...Jon Heder is just joking. He's a normal down-to-Earth guy just like the rest of us and if he wasn't Mormon, I'd like to have a beer with him. He isn't being serious about playing Aquaman. In fact, I bet he only wants to do comedies.

Jon Heder continued...
 

"No, seriously, I love the superhero genre and am very interested in doing a big budget studio version."
 


Heder then went on to talk about how similar he was to Aquaman.
 

"I can breathe under water for a little bit...I can hold my breath for a few minutes in the audition."



Napoleon Dynamite then went on to say that he could kick rumored front runner Jason Momoa's ass in a fight, and kill him in a knife fight.

.....Okay, he didn't say that. But you know that guy totally believes it. With Joseph Smith on his side, he could do anything.

Well I don't know what to say. But I'll say this if he was to play Aquaman no one would take Arthur seriously.

I will say this after going to the other site he doesn't look as Nerdy anymore. I think Booster Gold would be a better fit for him.
McGee - 6/15/2014, 7:29 PM
Okay.... You haters need to accept the fact that he's probably a better pick than Jason Momoa.

Imagine him playing off Jessie Eisenberg's Lex Luthor.
SuperCat - 6/15/2014, 7:30 PM
F*ck no.

ruadh - 6/15/2014, 7:38 PM
I know in Napolean Dynamite he was acting, and doesn't really sound like that all the time...but I wish he did. I can read these quotes only in that voice.

Too late.
BatfleckReturns - 6/15/2014, 7:39 PM
I don't think he understands. Aquaman needs to be cool again like in the New 52, NOT like the damn Superfriends/ Family Guy version.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/15/2014, 7:42 PM
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

SuperCat - 6/15/2014, 7:42 PM
He'd probably make a great Plastic Man though.
AlexanderLykins - 6/15/2014, 7:43 PM
Hope he likes working out. The Avenger least needed to be in top physical shape is in incredible shape.



BlackIceJoe - 6/15/2014, 7:43 PM




Maybe not the perfect choice. But I see him more as BG over Aquaman. But even Mcgee is right Jon does look more like Aquaman then Jason.
AlexanderLykins - 6/15/2014, 7:44 PM
A young Hank Pym perhaps?

In other news, if they gave me a million dollars, I would take it. :P
BenderBendingRodriguez - 6/15/2014, 7:57 PM

Michael Cera as Joker too please lol
AlexanderLykins - 6/15/2014, 8:01 PM
But seriously.

mgeoff88 - 6/15/2014, 8:01 PM
LMAO! This is comedy gold right here.
AlexanderLykins - 6/15/2014, 8:02 PM
This is going to be one of those threads. Too bad I need to go to bed soon.
AlexanderLykins - 6/15/2014, 8:06 PM
Bread - 6/15/2014, 8:06 PM
He would be a good Lex Luther.
Pedrito - 6/15/2014, 8:06 PM
Yes!
Aquaman needs to do a dance piece a la Napoleon Dynamite.
Bread - 6/15/2014, 8:06 PM
or Ra's Al Ghul
Bread - 6/15/2014, 8:07 PM
or Lobo.
mgeoff88 - 6/15/2014, 8:33 PM
Wait, Jon Heder is a Mormon?

No drinking... No sex before marriage... [frick] that! I'm not about that life.
DylanTBest - 6/15/2014, 8:37 PM
With all the casting decisions in BvS, I wouldn't be surprised.
mgeoff88 - 6/15/2014, 8:55 PM
SidTheDolphMan - 6/15/2014, 8:55 PM
McGee making articles? I love it!


Jon Heder ahould be Aqualad
SidTheDolphMan - 6/15/2014, 8:59 PM
Imean he might as well be a young Jason Mamoa
DCeddie - 6/15/2014, 9:00 PM
Wouldn't be any worse than any of the other ridiculous casting in this movie...in fact, I'd be more surprised if a silly casting like this didn't happen...
