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.
