Stephen Root is truly a national treasure. Few may know his name, but most have been touched by his work whether they realize it or not.
His is a all-around brilliant performer with an impressively wide array of talents.
An actor who’s long and ubiquitous career weaves effortlessly between comedic and dramatic performances.

He is an iconic star of both television and movies who (no matter how small the role) always seems to steal the scene.
From playing the lovable and eccentric Milton in the cult classic comedy Office Space, to roles on True Blood, CSI, Veep and King of the Hill playing the voice of Bill.
To his portrayal of the eccentric billionaire Jimmy James in the ’90s television comedy Newsradio.
Here’s a hysterical clip from Newsradio featuring Stephen Root reading from his recently published memoir entitled Super Karate Monkey Death Car.
Root is also well-known for his dramatic roles in such films as No Country For Old Men, et al.
Truly, Stephen Root is an actor who is equally adroit at getting laughs or delivering riveting and white-knuckle Oscar caliber performances.
