James Spader is CEO of the '80s too: 10 favorite movie lines

james-spader.jpgJames Spader better be enjoying life these days. Just having been named to the full-time cast of The Office, things are goin' pretty good for him, as Cousin Eddie says. And the '80s generation can take enjoy a moment of pride knowing that it was Spader's work during our favorite decade that launched him on his way. (Spader cranked out an amazing 11 feature films in those 10 years.)

Now, to be fair, just about every, single film role of Spader in the '80s (and frankly for decades beyond) is beyond creepy. (And I love them all. Secretary anyone?) You can name his characters off the top of your head. Rip. Steff. Deforest. Epic names. Epic d-bags. But you can only have so many Tom Hanks in the world.

So, for fans of The Office out there, along with our loyal Stuck in the '80s nation, here are...
