OK, let’s try that again: OMG, Milton Waddams from Office Space is joining Pushing Daisies!

(The crowd roars)

Now that’s more like it.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Root, also fondly remembered as NewsRadio”s billionaire boss, Jimmy James, has booked a four-episode arc on Daisies. His character “has a shared history with both Ned’s dad and Chuck’s dad,” explains series creator Bryan Fuller. “He stirs up a lot of hullabaloo for everyone, particularly Aunts Lily and Vivian.”

Daisies‘ second season kicks off Oct. 1.

    thank you, I hope that he can still do Bill’s voice as well as this new role. He’s my favorite character on KOTH

    I’ll watch anything with Stephen Root, (I’ve loved him since he was Jimmy James) and my husband loves Pushing Daisies. So, it’s a two-for! Can’t wait.

    I also know Stephen Root as “Jimmy James” and not so much Milton. In fact, every guy I know called James gets nicknamed Jimmy James.

    I love Stephen Root. I can’t remember seeing him in anything and being disappointed. He’s always very good.

  • lanolin…like sheep’s wool.

    I love Stephen Root, especially in O Brother Where Art Thou and I love Pushing Daisies, so I am so excited about Stephen’s addition to PD!! Bring on October 1st!!
