Adding more color to American entertainment industry with his terrific comedic skills also memorable screen presence, Jon Heder could as well be one hot commodity worth to watch for in the genre. One of six children in his family, the funnyman was born Jonathan Joseph Heder on October 26, 1977 in Fort Collins, Colorado and spent most of his early life in Salem, Oregon where he attended South Salem High School before headed for Provo, Utah to enroll in Brigham Young University following his 1996 graduation from the institution. Accompanied by his identical twin brother, Daniel, he initially took film program as his major there, but later decided to switch his study to computer animation, through which he finally could earn his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2003. Though so, his bond with the former field apparently still took its toll in his life as the guy afterwards found himself back to acting thing when he was asked by close friend Jared Hess to play in his short film effort of "Peluca" (2003) which then was brought to Slamdance Film Festival in the same year.
