'The Office' Season 8 Promos Tease About the New Boss


'The Office' Season 8 Promos Tease About the New Boss
Compiling the job interview footage from last season, the videos highlight James Spader's Robert California who creeps Jim out.


NBC has released two promos for "The Office" season 8 that put the focus on James Spader's Robert California. Both videos feature footage from the last season in which he appears as an applicant for Michael Scott's vacant regional manager position. "He creeps me out, but I think he might be a genius," so John Krasinski's Jim Halpert says about California.

California will indeed get the job, but he quickly decides the role is too small for him. Thus, he talks corporate into appointing him as its new CEO, replacing Kathy Bates' Jo Bennett. Bennett herself reportedly quits the drama comedy series to focus on season 2 of "Harry's Law".

Unlike Bates' character, Spader's will have a significant weekly presence on the show. His character is additionally said having "a strong impact on the rest of the 'Office' staff, demonstrating a manipulative power and a somewhat creepy sexual vibe."

"The Office" will return with new episodes on Thursday, September 22 at 9 P.M.
