How James Spader will fit in at “The Office”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Now that we know James Spader will be replacing Steve Carell as the head of the Scranton branch at Dunder Mifflin, what can we figure out about his character and how will he fit into the already rock-solid emsemble?

For starters, when he confirmed Spader’s hiring, series creator Ricky Gervais said Spader actually would head up parent company Sabre, replacing Kathy Bates as she moves on to “Harry’s Law.”

THR also breaks down five key facts about Spader, including the fact that he won three Emmys for his work on ABC’s “The Practice” and its spinoff, “Boston Legal,” as well as the fact that Spader will replace Carell’s character, Michael Scott, for only one day before receiving a major promotion.

“James will reprise his role as Robert California, this uber-salesman that has a power to convince and manipulate, like a high-class weirdo Jedi warrior,” says Paul Lieberstein, an executive producer and series regular. “He’ll have been hired over the summer as the new manager, but within hours, got himself promoted. Within days, he took over the company. James has an energy that is completely his own, and ‘The Office’ has no tools for dealing with this guy. We’re thrilled he’s joining our cast.”
