Steve Carell, Amy Ryan, The Office

NBC / Ron Tom, NBC / Chris Haston

It's going to be a good year for Michael Scott (Steve Carell).

In addition to his ex-girlfriend Jan (Melora Hardin) being pregnant with another man's baby (who?), he's getting some more quality time with his new human-resources director. Of course, some bosses would think that's a small leap to a big sexual-harassment lawsuit, but most bosses aren't the World's Best Boss.

Bottom line: Actress Amy Ryan (Academy Award-nominated for her turn in Ben Affleck's Gone Baby Gone) will return to Dunder-Mifflin's Scranton branch for at least five episodes this season as Holly Flax. This comes on the heels of the news last week that Steve Carell signed on for three more years of Office work.
