Amy Ryan Talks About "Win Win" and "The Office!"
Independent Films, Talk Shows, Movie Reviews, Interviews
I love Amy Ryan! I still can’t forget her beautiful performance in “Gone Baby Gone.” In the new excellent dramedy “Win Win,” she plays Jackie Flaherty, the wife of Paul Giamatti’s Mike. I’m strongly supporting this great Thomas McCarthy (“The Station Agent,” “The Visitor” movie!
In this interview, we talked about:
What attracted her to making the film?
Her complex mother figure character
Working with Thomas McCarthy
Finding the right rhythm with Giamatti
How did she pick her roles?
And finally, “The Office!” Her character, Holly Flax, may be the reason why Steve Carrell’s Michael Scott is leaving “The Office!”
