James Spader set to depart 'The Office'

James Spader's Robert California just landed the job of new "CEO" of Dunder-Mifflin at the start of this season of "The Office," but the actor's already handing in his resignation.

According to Variety, Spader isn't returning for the NBC show's ninth season. Sad news for "Office" fans, surely, as CNN's Henry Hanks believed the Emmy-winning actor deserved a nod for the role.

The character was a potential "applicant" for Michael Scott's old gig when Steve Carell left the series, but Spader's California was then brought on as the replacement for Kathy Bates' Jo Bennett.

Uma Thurman expecting baby No. 3

Uma Thurman is getting ready to welcome another little one - a rep for the 41-year-old actress confirms that she's expecting.

This will be Thurman's third child, but her first with Swiss financier Arpad Busson, whom she's been attached to since 2007, having resumed the relationship after a breakup in 2009.

Thurman previously welcomed daughter Maya, 13, and Levon, 10, with ex-husband Ethan Hawke, according to People magazine.

People notes that actor Hawke and his wife Ryan recently welcomed a new baby of their own last August: a little girl named Indiana. The pair also have another daughter, 3-year-old Clementine Jane.

Nick Jonas croons away on 'Smash'

Monday night's "Smash" featured plenty of singing between Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty, but guest star Nick Jonas nearly stole the show with his rendition of Michael Buble's "Haven't Met You Yet."

Jonas, who's currently in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," played Lyle, a young TV star whom Derek discovered (or was it Tom? In any case, it was ironic that Julia declared her disdain for people taking credit for others' careers, and went ahead and did it anyway, on Tom's behalf).

Lyle was also at the right place at the right time for Eileen, when she needed a wealthy investor to buy one of her most prized pieces of art, to help fund the musical.

'Dancing with the Stars' reveals season 14 cast

The upcoming season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" could be the most difficult yet for the popular series.

"Dancing" once ruled the Monday night ratings roost, but with NBC starting to show muscle with "The Voice," the Tom Bergeron-hosted affair is facing pressure to step it up for its 14th season, especially after critics took umbrage with the series' lack of star power in recent seasons.

So who will be hoofing it up for season 14? This season's stars, revealed this morning on ABC's "Good Morning America," are:
