Amy Ryan's Still Working at The Office

Amy Ryan's Still Working at The Office

Hooray! Amy Ryan, who was one of the funniest parts of the exceptionally funny season finale of The Office, will be returning to Dunder-Mifflin this Fall.

Ryan will reprise her role as Holly, the new HR woman replacing Toby (and possibly wooing Michael), for at least five episodes next season. I foresee so much more "special Kevin" that my stomach already hurts from laughing.

Ryan's known for more dramatic fare (Gone Baby Gone, The Wire), but her performance as Holly was completely spot-on. And how much do I love her? Here's what she told Variety: "It's a funny thing to enter a show that you're a great fan of — and it's nice to tell lighter stories. I love the dark, grittier side of life, but it's nice to take a break from that, put a skirt on and brush your hair."

So, what happens with Holly now? Will Michael have finally met his match? Nobody's saying, though Paul Lieberstein (who played Toby and is one of the show's writer/producers) had this to say: "Amy gave the character of Holly an openness and matured innocence that exposed a new side of Michael. She placed her character right on his level."

Whether it's a love story in the making or not, I can't wait to see what else the writers come up with for Holly's story. Hey, maybe Michael will reject her and Kevin will get to "totally bang Holly" after all.

I like her too, but the hate Michael Scott had for Toby was so funny...I hope there are some suprise Toby scenes...

Ugh. NOT a fan of that character. Toby was my absolute favorite and I want "that red-headed guy with the sad eyes" back!!!
