Jon Gries revives Uncle Rico character one more time

On the latest episode of Campus Sports’ web series, “Time Out,” we caught up with actor Jon Gries, who is popular for his portrayal of the well-known role of “Uncle Rico” in “Napolean Dynamite.”

Gries played hundreds of roles throughout his career and discussed his wildly successful career.

During our sitdown, Gries opened up about the Uncle Rico character — which has grown a cult-like following — and he even got into character to tell us where Uncle Rico would be if he continued his career.

Believe it or not, Gries said he was done acting before accepting the role in the film, and let’s be glad that he decided to jump on the opportunity.

Check out the interview below.

Uncle Rico also challenged some quarterbacks across the nation in the NFL and college football ranks.

Tune in tomorrow to see who gets called out.
