James Spader has played a great deal of roles throughout his career from dramas to comedies to a mix of both. Some of The Blacklist actor’s most memorable roles have come in the past few years where he played Robert California as a possible replacement after Michael Scott on TV’s The Office. So while the show has been over for just a couple of years, what if his personality lived on in the form of Ultron, his title villain from the popular Marvel film, Avengers: Age of Ultron.
With a mash-up this humorous and obvious, it was only a matter of time before someone got the idea to combine the two, and now there is a video just for it. Check out the hilarious video here below.
Martin Freeman was the host last night on Saturday Night Live, where he did a digital short called The Office: Middle Earth that combined his roles in The Hobbit films and The Office television series. In the short, the characters from The Hobbit — including Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, Tauriel, Gollum, and Legolas — take up office jobs after their epic adventure that saved Middle-earth.
Freeman was part of the original British Office TV series starring Ricky Gervais, which was the basis for the U.S. Steve Carell version.

Deadline is reporting that NBC is looking to give their beloved character, Dwight Schrute from The Office, his own show with a mid-season 2013 debut being eyed.
Played by Rainn Wilson, Schrute is one of the most beloved characters on the show, particularly since Steve Carell left. Originally thought of as the leader of the pack of possible lead replacements, NBC appears to be going somewhere different with the character, making the fate of the show proper something of a question.
The title character of Hesher, in the upcoming movie produced by Natalie Portman and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, was inspired by the late Metallica bass guitarist, Cliff Burton. Gordon-Levitt revealed the inspiration during a recent interview, in which he discussed how he based his performance of the iconic metal god’s behavior.
Apparently, according to Gordon-Levitt, the current members of Metallica weren’t informed of the basis of the character before seeing the film, and were surprisingly reminded of the much-loved but long lost band member from years gone by. Burton is highly respected and lovingly remembered by the fans as well, so it will be interesting to see fan reaction to the performance as well.
