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."
