To begin with, the boy was raised in Sarasota, the son of Leona Estelle and Rolland Clair Root. Stephen studied at the University of Florida graduating with a BFA. Having trod the stages of Broadway, he debuted on the big screen in “Monkey Shines” (1989) by George Romero, followed by the films “Crocodile Dundee 2” (1989) produced and directed by John Cornell, and “Black Rain” (1990) by Ridley Scott, which were the basis of his net worth.

Over the years, the actor built a solid career as a character actor, dividing his time between television and cinema. He has appeared in such films as “Ghost” (1990), “Guilty by Suspicion” (1991), “Buffy – The Vampire Slayer” (1992) and “RoboCop 3” (1993). Regarding television, he worked from 1995 to 1999 in the sitcom “News Radio”, in which he played Jimmy James, the head of the radio station. He also appeared in television shows such as “Blossom”, with the addition of numerous appearances as a guest star in the popular TV series. He had a role in the science fiction film “Bicentennial Man” (1999) by Chris Columbus, and lent his voice to the animated films “Ice Age” (2002) and “Finding Nemo” (2003). He also starred in the films written, directed and produced by the Coen brothers – “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” (2000), “The Ladykillers” (2004) and “No Country for Old Men” (2007). The actor landed the roles in the comedy films including “Dodge Ball: A True Underdog Story” (2004), “Over Her Dead Body” (2008), “Drillbit Taylor” (2008) and “Leatherheads” (2008). In 2009, he starred in three films – “The Soloist”, “Imagine” and “The Men Who Stare at Goats”.

He starred in the HBO series “True Blood” (2008 – 2009) as Eddie, a vampire, and simultaneously appeared in several episodes of “Pushing Daisies” (2009) in its second season, playing the mysterious Dwight Dixon. In 2010, he participated in the eighth season of the FOX “24” series as the official Bill Prady and in the series “Justified” (2010 – 2014) as the eccentric Judge Mike Reardon. In 2010, was part of the cast of the film “The Conspirator” by Robert Redford, in which he played John M. Lloyd.

From 2014 to 2016 he portrayed Kent Russell in the series “Idiotsitter”, and more recently landed roles in the feature films “Miles” (2016), “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” (2016), “Spectral” and “Get Out” (2017). Moreover, he worked as a voice actor in the films “Tom and Jerry: Back to Oz” (2016), “Finding Dory” (2016) and “Looking for the Jackalope” (2016). Soon, the following films with Stephen Root will be released “Infinity Baby” (2017), “Three Christs” (2017) and “Life of the Party” (2018). Stephen is certainly in demand, so benefiting his net worth too.

1[on his role in Ghost (1990)] That was fun. It was one of the first couple of films that I did in New York. Doing Broadway, you are able to get in to some film auditions at the same time. I did Ghost (1990) and Crocodile Dundee II (1988) within two or three months of each other. It was great to work with 'Demi (Moore)'. We both had little kids at the time. We talked mostly about that.
2[on his early TV work] I enjoyed doing Night Court (1984), because Harry Anderson actually wrote me a second episode that I came and did for them. They were all fun. I did a lot of '(Steven) Bochco' stuff-Civil Wars (1991), NYPD Blue (1993). It was all fun. I got to do Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). I was a lawyer one day and a Klingon the next.
3(2007) My goal as an actor was to work-to be a working actor, whether it was in theater, and, well, I didn't even consider film and television when I was in New York, but what came along, came along. So, in that sense, I have achieved my goal of being a working actor. And luckily enough, I have recognition to be able to do jobs that I want to do instead of doing jobs for money, which is an enviable position to be in. It's what you work for your whole life anyway, to take jobs that interest you and not jobs that are just crap.
4My whole career, I've tried to bounce back and forth between everything, and not get typed out. I've done a pretty good job of not getting typed. So I'll do a lot of comedy, and then I'll not do comedy for a year, do The West Wing (1999) and then do something else. You have to remind casting directors out here that you don't just do one thing. There's a lot of people who do just one thing.
5[on coming up with the voice for "Bill", his character on King of the Hill (1997)] I have done a lot of Southern theater; I came out of the University Of Florida. I did do a lot of Southern plays in New York and regional stuff on the East Coast, so I had done "Driving Miss Daisy" and all of these things. So it was kind of an amalgamation of those things. I actually auditioned for "Dale" first. It didn't feel right to me, so I said, "Let me try this guy". That felt a lot more comfortable.
6[on making Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004)] Well, it was a lot of hard work. It was like pitching 100 baseballs every day. We were all iced up by the end of the day. It's hard to throw overhand so many times. 'Vince (Vaughn)' started throwing with his left hand one day, because he was just done. It was a very physical shoot. It was fun, but it wasn't without its aches and pains.
7I'm actually a Midwest kid. My dad was in construction, so we moved around every couple of years. I've lived in Muncie, Indiana, Sioux City, Iowa, Kansas City MO, Glen Rock, Wyoming; all over the Midwest. My Dad moved down to Florida when I was in senior high. It was cheap to go to college in Florida, so I became a Gator for four years. That's where I started doing theater.
1As of 2015, has appeared in three films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: Ghost (1990), No Country for Old Men (2007) and Selma (2014). No Country for Old Men (2007) won in the category.
2Had filmed scenes for Kindergarten Cop (1990) that were later cut out of the final film.
3With his part as the squirrelly "Milton Waddams" in the cult classic Office Space (1999), Root has developed a fan base; he has said that, from time to time, fans of the movie will either mail him or give him, in person, a red Swingline stapler.
4He is in the theatrical trailer for White Oleander (2002) although his scenes were cut from the film itself (other then a very brief voice-over).
5Has a teenage son.
6Appeared in three movies with Ben Affleck: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992), Jersey Girl (2004) and Surviving Christmas (2004).
7Did voice-over work with former Office Space (1999) costar Gary Cole, for the Kim Possible (2002) series.
8Donated $100,000 to the University of Florida in 2003 to fund an acting studio, which is now called the Stephen Root Acting Studio.
