Rewarding My Younger Self | Jon Heder on Fatherhood, Priorities, NFTs

Modern Dadhood

At what point in your life did you realize that you wanted to be a father? Even as a kid, actor Jon Heder recognized he was born to be a dad. When the cultural phenomenon Napoleon Dynamite unexpectedly launched him into the spotlight in 2004, Jon knew how he’d balance that with family life: family would simply always take priority. Nearly 20 years and four kids later, Jon works when he wants to, indulges selfie-hungry fans, and keeps his priorities in check.Episode 75 of Modern Dadhood opens with a chat about when in their lives Adam and Marc knew they wanted to have kids, and some discussion of whether the family you grow up in might impact your vision or plans for your own family. The guys introduce Jon Heder, who grew up in a family of 6, who reflects on a positive upbringing. Jon, known for his roles in films like Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory, Mama's Boy, and Tremors: Shrieker Island, knew even as a kid that he was going to be a dad. He was married young, and he and his wife began growing their family several years after the release of Napoleon Dynamite brought him international fame. Jon shares candidly about his decision to continue acting while being selective about the roles he took so that his family and faith could always remain his priorities. The conversation goes deep, and covers topics like:•  The pros and cons of raising twins•  Does growing up in a large family influence your desire to have multiple kids?•  The various ways parenthood is hard AND rewarding•  How Jon balances family with his acting career•  Bringing family to set when filming•  The fear of “oversaturating” your kids•  How Jon addresses fan interactions when he’s with his family•  The importance of modeling kindness and respect•  Jon’s NFT project “Order of the Tigons”•  And more!
