James Spader has officially joined the cast of 'The Office: An American Workplace', replacing the outgoing Steve Carell, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Spader appeared in the seventh season finale of the show as one of several characters vying for Michael Scott's regional manager position.
The multi-award winning actor, best known for his role in 'The Practise', will join the comedy as CEO Robert California of Sabre - the parent company of Dunder Mifflin Paper Co. It was reported last month that Spader was in talks with NBC bosses about a possible role, but Harvey Keitel and Jim Carrey were also rumoured to have been in negotiations. Executive producer Paul Lieberstein explained how the character will be introduced into the long-running comedy, saying, "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". In 2010, Carrell announced he was leaving the show after seven years to spend more time making movies.
James Spader won three Emmy Awards as the cutthroat lawyer 'Alan Shore' in ABC's 'The Practise' and the spin-off Boston Legal. He is also known for his roles in 'Secretary' and 'Sex, Lies and Videotape'.
