Root who is best known as Milton, the stapler-obsessed employee in the cult film Office Space says he marks the success of a role by whether or not it inspires an action figure.
So far, Root has figures based on his role as Bubbles in Finding Nemo, Bill Dauterive from King Of The Hill and Chode, the stumpy purple alien he plays on Tripping The Rift, a Sci-Fi Channel animated show now beginning its second season.
Root keeps his action figures on display around the house but admits hes surprised that no one has released figures based on the characters of Office Space, since he points out, I get more autograph requests for that than anything else.
That could change soon since Tripping The Rift which also stars John Melendez and Carmen Electra has its season premiere on Wednesday (Jul. 27).
