James Spader Officially Joins The Office!
Looks like James Spader has now OFFICIALLY joined the case of NBC’s The Office.Did he take over the role of Scranton branch manager at Dunder Mifflin? Not exacty. The Boston Legal star will be the new CEO of Sabre.
“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,” executive producer Paul Lieberstein and star of Toby on The Office said in a statement.
James Spader first hit the Office on the season 7 finale. In that episode he was applying for the role of Scranton’s branch manager but things took a turn:
“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.”
The CEO used to be Kathy Bates, but she’s taking a step down to focus on her own drama series.
It should be interesting to see who will be the branch manager. Rumor STILL has it that it will be an internal hire.
