Brandon Jay McLaren & Emma Lahana in "Ratko: The Dictator's Son" (2009)

Former Ranger actors Brandon Jay McLaren & Emma Lahana both appeared in the National Lampoon's comedy "Ratko: The Dictator's Son." Filmed in Canada, the movie follows a foreign dictator's son Ratko (played by Napoleon Dynamite's Efren Ramirez) as he comes to America to experience true college life. He immediately uses his wealth to renovate his dorm, forcing the other students to be moved out. Brandon Jay McLaren (Jack, SPD) appears in several scenes as Juwaan, one of the incoming freshmen that is displaced from the dorms thanks to Ratko. Juwaan and his friend Nick take it in stride, though when they see the upscale hotel where Ratko has paid for the students to stay instead. Juwaan & Nick are seen throughout the film at events hosted by Ratko, taking advantage of his hospitality. Appearing in a smaller role is Dino Thunder's Emma Lahana (Kira, Dino Thunder). Lahana plays a Sorority girl whose house is invaded by Ratko and his dorky roommate Jeremy. Ratko mistakes the house for a brothel where he tries to purchase the women's services for his virgin sidekick. Lahana has a few lines when the two burst into her room and then appears at the side of the lead Sorority girl as she confronts Ratko before kicking him out of the house.
