Bio

James Spader is an American actor best known to television audiences for his role as the ethically challenged attorney Alan Shore in the comedy-drama series The Practice (2003-2004) and Boston Legal (2004-2008), for which he won three Emmy Awards.

He also starred as Dunder Mifflin Sabre's new CEO, Robert California, in the eighth season of the mockumentary comedy series The Office, from 2011-2012.

Some of Spader's credits include Steven Soderbergh's sex, lies and videotape, which won him the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival; David Cronenberg's Crash, which received the Special Jury Prize at Cannes; and Steven Shainberg's Secretary, which won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Feature.

Spader won three Emmy Awards for his seminal role as shameless attorney Alan Shore on The Practice and Boston Legal, making him the only actor to win consecutive Emmys playing the same character on two different series.

He also has a starring role as Raymond "Red" Reddington, a former FBI agent ranked fourth on the FBI's list of Most Wanted Fugitives who is widely known among the law enforcement and intelligence communities as one of the world's most dangerous men, in the crime drama television series The Blacklist.
