  • They will be playing Mr and Mrs Pendergrast. A couple who lost a child, and then find Peter and think he is him.

  • Look at that photo. Is there a lot of laughter in that marriage or not?

    So looking forward to this. I don’t understand why Stephen Root hasn’t had his own show. One of the funniest men in the world!

  • Root will play a character who decides to destroy the universe after someone takes his stapler. ;)

    Seriously though, I’m totally stoked for this guest appearance.

  • I read on SuperFringeSpoilers.com that Root is playing grown-up Peter in a flashforward thing, because apparently in 2035 he exists again.
