As one guy make an epic failure of a dive, it’s almost as if the onlooker predicted it all along.
Set to the the theme of 20th Century Fox, the witness in the background would much rather chill like a boss while his friend slips over a puddle of water and ultimately makes a painful entrance into the water.
But while I hope the “diver” suffered only minor injuries during this unfortunate accident, this video is possibly even better set to the “20th Century Fox” theme played on a recorder.
So it’s official that James Spader will be joining The Office. He will be playing Robert California, who is initially hired to replace Michael Scott, but quickly becomes the top boss, reports LA Times.
“James will reprise his role as Robert California, this uber-salesman that has a power to convince and manipulate, like a high-class weirdo Jedi warrior,” said series regular Paul Lieberstein, one of the series’ executive producers.
“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,” Lieberstein added. “We’re thrilled he’s joining our cast.”
We thought his “initial interview” on The Office was cute, but we are skeptical he can carry this role.
Although there still isn’t any word on who’s going to replace Michael Scott at Dunder Mifflin, we do know the names of the potential candidates.
With the loss of Steve Carrell, the series will compensate with a star-studded ending to the show’s seventh season.
Ricky Gervais and Will Arnett were announced as guest stars in March, while earlier this month, Ray Romano, James Spader and Catherine Tate were revealed to be joining the show as well. Will Ferrell, will also be joining the cast for the final four episodes as D’Angelo Vickers, the temporary boss.
Show star and writer Mindy Kaling has also let fans in on some juicy details about the show’s season finale via Twitter on Tuesday, revealing the names of the guest stars’ characters.
“William Arnett plays ‘Fred Henry’, Raymond Romano plays ‘Merv Bronte’, and James Spader plays ‘Robert California’. These are real, guys,” she tweeted.
Kaling then added, “Catherine ‘The Great’ Tate is Nellie Bertrum. (Again, real.)”
If you think the names are silly, Kaling says the process of creating them was just as fun.
“Naming new characters is one of the most fun times in a writers room, as @KenTremendous can attest. Takes a tiny, silly part of the brain!” Kaling wrote, referring to Michael Schur, a former writer for the series and co-creator of “Parks and Recreation.”
While no one will ever replace Carrell, the announcement of these guest stars sure make up for the loss of Michael Scott,.
I really hope the hype is worth it because with such comedic talents lined up to guest star, I will be looking forward to having a good laugh from upcoming episodes!
This week’s topic: Top five video game clichés
For this week’s rant, I thought I would take a page out of the Brett blog and do a top five list. Not to steal his thunder, but a topic like this has been nagging in my head for a good long while now. This week, I’m going to take a look at the top five clichés that annoy me but often pop up in video games. Perhaps because it works well in that specific title, perhaps because the story writers or coders or someone along the supply chain was lazy, perhaps we will never know but until that point, at least you, the viewers will know how I feel about them.
