Ugh. This is good news and bad news. The bad news is, James Spader has signed on to be the new office manager on Season 8 of The Office. The good news is, it will be short-lived because he has his sights set for the CEO position which he will get. Therefore we still need to find a replacement for Michael Scott. Which I still believe, is impossible.
As you can probably tell, I’m not the biggest James Spader fan. I can appreciate that he’s a good actor but for some reason, he just rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it’s the fact that every role he’s in, he comes off as so completely arrogant and obnoxious that I equate his characters with him. Not fair, I know, but it’s the truth. I was already concerned about filling Michael’s shoes, and this casting doesn’t have me very optimistic. But like I mentioned above it’s not permanent so I guess I can see how it goes.
What do you think The Office fans? Do you like the casting or not?
