James Spader on 'The Office': What do you think of Robert California?

James Spader made his debut as a regular member of "The Office" cast Thursday night (Sept. 22). So what do you make of the new CEO?As we said in our recap of the season premiere, we see a lot of potential in the very different energy he brings to the show. The show's documentary style allows for a pretty loose, off-the-cuff brand of acting, but Spader has always seemed to be very specific in the choices he makes, and early indications are that he's continuing down that path as new Sabre CEO Robert California.The show's writers are aware of that, and based on the premiere (and his brief appearance in last season's finale) it looks like they'll be able to get a lot of comic mileage out of the staff adjusting to this very smart, blunt, strange man in their midst.When the hiring of Spader was announced over the summer, we weren't sure how he... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/09/james-spader-on-the-office-what-do-you-think-of-robert-california.html

James Spader Checks Into 'The Office,' New Boss Revealed (VIDEO)

Another day, another new actor in a lead role on a long-running series. This time it was James Spader stepping in for Steve Carell on 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC), though his Robert California didn't take over Michael Scott's position. As promised, he instead quickly took over Jo's position as CEO of Dunder-Mifflin, though they show pretty quickly glossed over what could have been a fascinating scene. Couldn't they steal Kathy Bates away from 'Harry's Law' for one quick transfer-of-power scene? Right off, though, Robert is a more hands-on CEO, as we learn that he spends half his time setting up camp in the Scranton branch's conference room. He's certainly an interesting character, but very different in tone than Michael Scott. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/09/23/james-spader-checks-into-the-office-new-boss-revealed-video/
