One of the best things about the season finale of The Office was Amy Ryan. She's always so great dramatically, and I had no idea she could do comedy as well. The awkwardness between her character and Michael Scott was priceless. Actually, Michael's awkward with anyone. Anyway, she'll be back! I will miss Toby though - is he really gone for good?
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).
In the season-four ender, "Goodbye, Toby," Ryan's character replaced long-suffering HR staffer Toby Flenderson, played by Paul Lieberstein.
