He's a 3-time Emmy winner for his role on "Boston Legal," and now JAMES SPADER has joined the cast of NBC's hit show, "The Office." He's telling Ellen how he's been adapting to the office politics of his new job, and how it's felt stepping into a show that's had such a celebrated run! His courage and understanding as Kurt Hummel's father on "Glee" has made a lasting impact on parents and children around the world. The hilarious MIKE O'MALLEY is sitting down with Ellen to catch her up on what's been happening with his hit show, and what we can expect from the incredibly talented cast for the rest of the season! Plus, there's an exciting new series on National Geographic called "Brain Games" and Ellen loves it! The show explores the astounding tricks and shortcuts our brains use to understand the world around us, and it will blow you away! Hosts DANIEL J.
