James Spader may join regular cast of "The Office"
Hit Flix Staff wrote:
'Boston Legal' Emmy-winner would replace Kathy Bates as Dunder-Mifflin CEO
By HitFix Staff Friday, Jun 24, 2011 5:33 PM

James Spader is close to signing a deal to join NBC's "The Office," reports EW.com.
 


Spader recently guested on the season finale as one of the contenders hoping to replace Michael Scott (Steve Carell) as Dunder Mifflin Scranton boss. Now the actor may settle in higher up on the corporate ladder, replacing actress Kathy Bates as CEO of Dunder Mifflin.

Spader won three Emmys for his work on "Boston Legal." Bates will now focus on David E. Kelley legal drama "Harry's Law," also on NBC. 


It's still unknown who will fill Carell's shoes as boss of the Scranton office, although heavy-hitters Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey, Ray Romano and Ricky Gervais were among the other actors who appeared on the show as potential replacements last season. The Hollywood Reporter says that British comedian Catherine Tate, who also appeared on the finale, is being considered by the show's producers.
 


Stay tuned.

Personally, I'd dig seeing Will Arnett in Carell's role, though Spader did a great job and would be a great addition in the same position that Kathy Bates currently plays.

I just started rewatching this from the beginning. Man, those first few episodes were rough before they found their footing. The pilot is damn near unwatchable, especially compared with the Gervais version. The US version recycled so many jokes and it is clear they were all done better in the original.

James Spader hired full-time for The Office
AP wrote:
NEW YORK (AP) — NBC has signed James Spader as a full-time cast member of "The Office."
The network announced Wednesday that Spader will reprise his guest role as manipulative salesman Robert California when the comedy returns this fall.
California will have been hired over the summer as the new manager of the Scranton office of Dunder Mifflin paper company. But within hours, he wangled a promotion to CEO of Sabre, the parent corporation of Dunder Mifflin.
This leaves the branch manager's position vacant again. An actor to replace departed series star Steve Carell is yet to be announced by NBC.
Spader appeared as one of several guest stars on "The Office" this spring. He's previously starred in the drama series "Boston Legal" and "The Practice."

The writing seems especially weak this season, particularly with Jim's character. Some of the things he's saying and doing feel like they are too ridiclous.

That 2nd one sounds especially awful but there are parts of the cast that I really like

Robert California makes everything worth it. Spader is genius.

Has "The Office" lost it's edge? Probably. But I still find Spader hilarious. He's got one hell of a role. The Pool Party episode gave him a lot to work with.

I was hoping that he'd mention his dock-working past or at least the mean streets of Bal(ti)more.
