Amy Ryan is Returning to The Office


“The Wire” star Amy Ryan has joined “The Office” for multiple episodes next season, reports Variety.

Ryan is set to appear in at least five episodes 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).

In the season-four ender, “Goodbye, Toby,” Ryan’s character replaced long-suffering HR staffer Toby Flenderson, played by Paul Lieberstein.

Ryan earned Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for Gone Baby Gone and also appeared with Carell in Dan in Real Life.
