james-spader-joins-the-office-not-replacing-michael-steve-carrellThere´s been a misunderstanding these days due to the announcement of NBC that James Spader is joining The Office to play the boss. Thing is, he´s not inheriting Steve Carrell´s role. James Spader is joing The Office to play CEO Robert California of Sabre, the parent company of Dunder Mifflin.

“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,” said Paul Lieberstein, one of the series’ executive producers and a 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.”

Next season of The Office can´t start soon enough… So we get to see exactly how much we will miss Michael.
