We were really happy to see that James Spader has signed on to join "The Office" on NBC to reprise his role of Robert California. Of all the potential bosses that marched through Dunder Mifflin last season, he was the one with the performance that jumped out and Robert California will leapfrog over Dunder Mifflin to run its parent company, Sabre. Brilliant idea, can't wait to see what he does with it when the show comes back on the air. The Hollywood Reporter has a five point summary of the actor's work.

"Sons of Anarchy" fans, how do you feel about David Hasselhoff guest starring on the show as a porn producer? I think it's brilliantly opportunistic and may be worth exploring for more than the single episode of the show that is planned. Obviously Kurt Sutter is exploring the waters carefully and he is one smart showrunner.
