If he joins the Office I'll start watching for sure. He has always been one of my most favorite people both in serious and funny roles.

When he first came to the office.. he looked like a psycho of some sort to me, like he's gonna blow the whole place if he gets the job.

I'm not a fan of this show but Spader is a decent actor. The thing I like about him is that he's not afraid to take a chance - Crash was a shining example of that.

If they were wanting to go with somebody that was in that interviews episode, then Spader is definitely the one I'd go with. He was great in that episode and my favorite of the bunch.

the office hasn't been funny since about season 3. now that carrell is gone i'm sure that's just the beginning of the end for the show. i'll stick with parks and rec.
