Ray Romano, James Spader tapped for “Office” finale

Hollywoodnews.com: Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch will be overcrowded with guest stars when NBC’s “The Office” signs off in May.
Ray Romano, Catherine Tate and James Spader will appear on the hourlong season finale – which also will be leading man Steve Carell’s final episode — according to THR. They woill join already announced guest stars Ricky Gervais, Will Arnett and Will Ferrell, all of whom are being considered potential replacements for Carell’s Michael Scott.
Are these new guests decoys? Or should we also be considering them as potential leaders for next season’s “Office” crew? We already could have guessed that Ferrell wouldn’t replace Carell, as he’d have to put his multi-million dollar movie career on hold. And Arnett just joined an NBC pilot co-starring Maya Rudolph and Christina Applegate, so it’s unlikely he’ll be the new boss on “The Office.”
So now we have new names and faces to focus on. “The Office” concludes its seventh season on May 19. Let’s hope we know more about the show’s plans by then.
