Why Amy Ryan Is Totally, Officially My New Second Favorite Actress

It's not just because she gave the finest movie performance, male or female, no questions asked, in 2007 (which I can't remember if I've mentioned or not), and it's not just because she played a completely different character in the second season of "The Wire" and made it completely convincing but now that she's gone on "The Office" (a sitcom of all places) to yet again play a different character - a human resources "dork" whom she gracefully underplays while still finding the funny - and not only do it convincingly but even make rapping the lines "wicka wicka what?" sound completely authentic.

Seriously, what can't this woman do?
