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.
