The former 'Boston Legal' actor will reprise his role as Robert California who will be hired as a new manager before getting fast promotion.

James Spader is officially added to regular cast in season 8 of "The Office". NBC announced on Wednesday, July 6 that the multiple Emmy Award winner will reprise his role as Robert California, who appeared in season 7 finale as an applicant for Michael Scott's vacant regional manager position.

"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," executive producer/regular actor Paul Lieberstein says. He describes Spader's character as an "uber-salesman that has a power to convince and manipulate, like a high-class weirdo Jedi warrior."

As it was said before, California will have been hired over the summer as the new manager, but he quickly decides the role is too small for him. Thus, he talks corporate into appointing him as its new CEO. Lieberstein additionally gushes, "...within hours, [he] got himself promoted. Within days, he took over the company."

Since reports of Spader being in talks to join next season of "The Office" as new CEO emerged, there have been speculations that the show may promote a character from within as new Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch manager. The drama comedy series will return on September 22.
