In the season finale last year, I thought James Spader was the best actor they put in that episode, but I am also unsure if it would translate into an entire 26 episode season. It will certainly provide a new dynamic and make The Office dramatically different than it was in the past. The lines you write for Steve Carell as Michael Scott are not the same you write for James Spader as Robert California. I kind of enjoyed Creed being boss. A whole season if him being the boss could be hilarious.
