Here's an except of actress Amy Ryan discussing the off-beat character she plays in "Jack Goes Boating" to read full post visit Philadelphia Film Society blog (

Q: What do you look for when you’re sent a script?

AR: That I’m not repeating myself. After Gone Baby Gone all the scripts I was offered where drug addicted mothers and it’s like oooh there’s an idea (sarcasm). So I try to keep making right angle turns. From Gone Baby Gone, I went to The Office. I don’t think I’ll be able to avoid that all the time, because I believe there are only about 8 stories in the world, dressed up in different costumes. But for me, it’s an instinct, if I start imagining a character, the way they walk and talk… I close the script and later I may be walking down the street and I can’t get them out of my head; it almost like when you meet someone and fall in love or have a crush and literally you can’t stop thinking about them… But if I’m bored half way through then I know I’m going to be bored on set and that’s never good.
