'The Office' First Look: Maura Tierney As 'Mrs. California'

Posted: Updated:

If you think Robert California is scary, wait until you meet his wife -- Mrs. California, played by actress Maura Tierney.

Making her triumphant return to TV comedy, Tierney is set to guest star on the Dec. 1 episode of NBC's "The Office" as Mrs. California, wife to James Spader's character, Robert California.

Robert will bring his wife to the office in the hopes of finding her a position at Dunder Mifflin. It looks like Andy is going to be put into one very tricky situation with this one. After all, we wouldn't want to say no to Robert -- or his wife.

Meanwhile, the new episode, titled "Mrs. California," will also feature Dwight opening a gym in the office building.

Watch the clip below -- from the episode "Doomsday" -- to see just how scary Robert can be.
