That's right. You heard us! James Spader is replacing
Steve Carell< /del> Kathy Bates.
Truth is, Kathy will be committed to her new show Harry's Law next fall and it will become impossible for her to return to The Office as Dunder Mifflin's CEO. That's why producers are courting James to take her spot, since he was so well recieved in this past season's finale.
We're happy for him … and we're not.
But only because we're dying to see who is replacing Michael Scott!!!! C'mon already!!!
