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.
