I was pleasantly surprised to see Stephen Root in Boba Fett last night. He's been a favorite actor since his appearance on Chicago Hope in 1995 as "Trumpet Playing Mental Patient". Then he was Jimmy James (or possibly D. B. Cooper?) in Newsradio. One of those character actors who is always interesting, even in otherwise bad projects.

Finally catching up on Boba Fett. Looks like plenty of celebs lining up for cameo spots. Can't say I hate the show but not overly crazy about it either. The timeline is all over the place.

Then two episodes of almost all Mandalorian so Disney can show their little green cash cow is really not helping the Fett side of things.

I just watched that episode and didn't recognize him until seeing his name in the credits. Yeah, I liked Newsradio too and of course his part in "Office Space."

Exactly what happened to me. I watched the show, saw the credits, saw "Stephen Root" and went WTF?
I had to repeat it and fast-forward until I realized who he was.

He was also good in "Oh Brother Where art Thou?" and "Justified".

Sad to see that Jennifer Beals got blowed up in the show.

I watched it with my brother. He had seen it already and said he recognized him then. And yeah, I didn't recognize Jennifer Beals either. It would be great to great their autographs in the inevitable Boba Fett card set.
