Is William Shatner cheating on James Spader?
November 9th, 2013 under Craig Ferguson, James Spader, William Shatner. [ Comments: none ]


If you are like me then your favorite part of Boston Legal were the balcony chats between William Shatner and James Spader. Well yesterday The Shat did a fireside chat like the ones he used to do with Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show and it just wasn’t the same. Although it was a nice fix for people like me who are still missing the David E Kelly legal drama.

Why James Spader decided to shave his head for The Blacklist
September 23rd, 2013 under James Spader, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


The Blacklist debuts at 10p tonight on NBC and James Spader has a new look for the drama. I will be honest, I don’t really know how to explain this show.
James Spader plays, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington, who is now one of the FBI’s most wanted. He suddenly comes out hiding and offers to work only with the very green FBI profiler, Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) to find some of the other most wanted ie The Blacklist. As they start to work together their lives will be put in danger, but all of this is worth if they make the world a safer place, right? But then again, how does a recent grad of Quantico handle working with one of the worst people out there. Tune each week to find out in this suspenseful drama.
Now one of the first things you will notice tonight is James Spaders blonde locks are gone. At the NBC TCA summer press Day, he explained it was his decision to shave his head. He said, “It was it sort of worked backwards from one moment, and that’s what I love in that opening sequence when he goes in and surrenders himself, the juxtaposition. I knew the very first thing when I got to New York to shoot the pilot — I had very long hair, and I knew that they were going to shoot a surveillance photo of Reddington to have on the wall there when he surrenders himself.” He wanted to make that moment even more impactful, so he “thought it would be just a great moment when he surrenders himself, he takes his hat off, and the juxtaposition of the shot of him with long hair and then like this…I thought it would be nice to take off my hat and it’s an entirely different person and a very different look to go with that.” He gave his character a background and told it to us as, “But working backwards from there, you know, the way his life has been for the last 20 years, he moves very swiftly through his life. He’s moving from place to place very quickly. I thought he should have a haircut, that he can do himself if he cares to or he can go to some barber shop in a little town in Cambodia and they can cut his hair in ten minutes.” It wasn’t only his hair that he thought of, “I just thought it was streamlined, and his clothes are like that, too, in that he looks well dressed, but traveling clothes. You know, he wears clothes that he can go from a bank to a cave and he’s dressed accordingly. And he’s also in a lot of different climates over the last 20 years, so I thought it would be appropriate that he that he dress and look as if he’s able to move through the world easily and comfortably.” So tune into watch as his backstory becomes current day tonight and every Monday at 10p.
And before you tune in for The Blacklist, watch the Emmy winning show that is on everyone’s best list! That’s right The Voice is back at 8p with all the original coaches, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and the competition’s biggest winner Blake Shelton.

James Spader quits The Office
February 27th, 2012 under James Spader, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


James Spader returned to TV this season to replace Steve Carrell on The Office, but turns out his he too will be replaced if the show is back for a ninth season. It was decision to quit Dunder Mifflin according to Variety. The show’s executive producer Paul Lieberstein explained, “James always wanted this to be a one-year arc, and he now leaves us having created one of the most enigmatic and dynamic characters in television. He’s been a great friend to me and the show, helping us successfully transition into the post-Michael Scott years, and I’m grateful for that.”
I wonder who they will get to replace him because I think The Office will be back on NBC next year because it is their best rated sitcom.

James Spader makes a man’s come true!
January 11th, 2012 under Ellen DeGeneres, James Spader. [ Comments: 1 ]


James Spader was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and he told her a story about a man he met at a cutlery store he goes to in LA. He said he met this guy, his first question to The Office boss was, “Do you know Ellen DeGeneres?” and asked if he could get him tickets to the show. Well Spader kept that in mind, so when the time came for him to be on the show he remembered what Pedro said and invited him. Well not only was it special for Pedro to be on the show, it was also a special day for him and Ellen made it a day he will never forget. Everything about this segment was so sweet, that I never thought I could love Spader more than I already did but I do. So sit back and watch a segment that will leave huge a$$ smile on your face.

And the new Office manager is…
July 6th, 2011 under James Spader, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


When Steve Carrell announced that he was leaving The Office, people wondered who could they possibly get to replace him that would be just as good. Well the NBC did that (and I think even more so) by hiring James Spader to join the show. Paul Lieberstein, one of the series’ executive producers and a series regular said, “He’ll have been hired over the summer as the new manager, but within hours, got himself promoted. Within days, he took over the company. James has an energy that is completely his own, and ‘The Office’ has no tools for dealing with this guy. We’re thrilled he’s joining our cast.” And we are thrilled he is joining the show.
He is definitely the perfect choice and it will be interesting to see what he will do with the role. In fact I love him so much so I might even start watching the show now.
