I would have been skeptical of this until I saw the finale. While I'm not a religious watcher of the Office, I enjoy the show and thought it was done for when Carrell left. But seeing Spader's performance in the season finale, I actually think this will be a great fit for he and the show. He did a wonderful job with that character. He was creepy, intellectual and funny.
I think this is a great move if they keep the character exactly as he was portrayed.
