What does James Spader hire mean for 'The Office'?

So, James Spader will reprise his guest role as manipulative salesman Robert California on "The Office" when the show returns this fall.

Not a bad get for NBC's workplace comedy.

But what about the branch manager role played by departed series star Steve Carell?

Does this mean that it's down to Jim, Dwight or Andy?

I'm thinking loveable goofball Andy will get the promotion.

Especially in light of the success Ed Helms — the actor who plays Andy — has had with the "Hangovers."
