You can see a few bits of John Goodman in this ‘Red State’ teaser, the way he looks in my “Roseanne” nightmares.
Stephen Root should be in more movies, so this is good news.
Director: Miguel Arteta Cast: Ed Helms, John C. Reilly, Anne Heche, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Kurtwood Smith, Stephen Root, Sigourney Weaver, Aliah Shawkat Synopsis: Tim Lippe has no idea what he’s…

Kevin Smith is rounding out Red State's cast of "well-known unknowns." He's already cast Michael Parks (who? Oh yeah. That guy.) to play the sadistic minister at the center of the story. Now there's news that a few other folks who you recognize from someplace may join the cast. Dermot Mulroney (About Schmidt), Stephen Root (Office Space), Kyle Gallner (Nightmare On Elm Street remake), Melissa Leo ("Treme"), and Michael Angarano (Gentleman Broncos) are contemplating taking roles in the horror film.
I'm not sure all these people count as unknowns. Dermot Mulroney and Stephen Root are pretty well-accomplished. Root starred on a popular sitcom for five years, and has appeared in over 150 projects. And some would argue that Dermot Mulroney is the most famous Dermot in America, nay, on the Planet Earth. (The Wrap)
