Most of the world probably didn’t know that Pedro, who starred in Napoleon Dynamite has a twin brother. Unfortunately though, Pedro threatened recently to sue his twin brother for more than $10 Million for impersonating him without his permission.
In 2008, Efren Ramirez (Pedro) sent his brother Carlos Ramirez a cease and desist letter that warned him to stop making public appearances as ‘Efren (Pedro)’. Apparently, Carlos only started impersonating Efren at his brother’s request, when Efren was “too busy” to make the appearances himself.
Carlos however admits that he took the gig too far and did attend an event without his brother’s knowledge all because of a beef he had with his brother about a girl he was dating at the time. He admits to having been immature. Carlos says the rift between the two got so bad, that Efren’s lawyer sent a letter instructing Carlos to stop “interfering with [Efren's] personal and professional life,” or else Efren would sue his brother to the tune $10 Million.
Carlos has since started focusing on his own acting career and wants to put the past behind him and move forward with his brother. Apparently he reached out to TMZ saying he would like to speak to his brother and possibly work with him in the future, and said, “I think it’s safe to say the magnitude of ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ and everything that has come along with it, has ruined my relationship with my twin.” Sibling rivalry is never fun, especially when it includes a $10 Million dollar lawsuit.
