talk about versatile

last night when we were watching the special features of “Gone Baby Gone”, we realized that the actress who played helene mccready (the abducted girl’s mother) looked really familiar…  she looked completely different, but amy ryan is the same girl who played holly on the season finale of the office (toby’s replacement/michael’s “love”)!!  in the movie she plays an inner-city crack ho and looks the part for sure…that’s why we didn’t recognize her until the interviews in the special features.  it is unreal to me how different those roles are, but she played both of them really really well.

after reading a little more about her, i just discovered she was also in “Dan in Real Life”, another movie i loved.
