Amy Ryan returns to ‘The Office’

From Variety:

“The Wire” star Amy Ryan will get a chance to flex her comedic muscles a bit more next season as she joins “The Office” for multiple episodes.

Ryan is set to appear in at least five segs in the fall, reprising her role as human resources rep Holly Flax. Ryan’s character first showed up in “The Office’s” season finale as a potential love interest for Michael Scott (Steve Carell).

  1. Yay! Amy Ryan is coming back! I was hoping that after the awesome chemistry she had with Steve and Brian that they would bring her back. Can’t wait for the new season!

  2. Oh my gosh, I had a brain fart for a second and I thought that the headline said, “Amy ADAMS returns to ‘The Office'”. This is still very exciting news though!

  3. Let me be a follower of everyone and just say SCORE. I knew she’d be back, though… there was no way you set up that JAM parallel with “not a bad day” and then just get rid of her ;)

  4. Fantastic! I loved the side of Michael that Holly brought out — before he agreed to play baby daddy to Jan.

  5. “Ryan’s character first showed up … as a potential love interest for Michael Scott (Steve Carell).”

    I mistook this as BJ Novak’s Ryan Howard, it cracked me up.

    [from tanster: LOL!]

  6. this is awesome. I hope they keep going with special Kevin. That was just too funny.

  7. I’m happy about this, but if she’s not going to stick around *permanently*, I wonder how they’ll deal with it when she eventually does leave? Won’t they have to just bring in yet another new HR person? Will they come up with some explanation for why the Scranton office no longer needs an HR rep?

  8. I suppose this is good news for Michael Scott, but I’m actually looking forward to more scenes with Holly and “the slow kid”. What’s his name? The one with the M&Ms and button money. :D

  9. That is awesome news! She was fantastic in “Goodbye, Toby”. I totally expect her to get an Emmy nomination for that. I can’t wait to see what they do with her character.

  10. After one episode, Holly was my second favorite character on the show! This is the best office news today!
