Amy Ryan Joins Alejandro Gonzalez-Inarritu Comedy ‘Birdman’

Amy Ryan is joining the cast of Birdman, the Alejandro Gonzalez-Inarritu-directed comedy that will shoot soon in New York. She joins Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis and Andrea Riseborough in the cast for Fox Searchlight and New Regency. Keaton plays a washed-up actor best known for playing an iconic superhero who puts together a play on Broadway based on a short story by Raymond Carver. Unfortunately, the ex-superhero’s plans to soar again are threatened by his egotistical lead stage actor (Norton). Ryan will play Keaton’s character’s long suffering ex-wife.

Birdman is produced by Inarritu, John Lesher and Robert Graf. The director wrote the script with Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo. Ryan most recently wrapped the Greg Mottola-directed Clear History, the Atom Egoyan-directed Devil’s Knot, Drake Doremus’ Breathe In and The Tomb. She’s repped by Gersh and Dave Feldman.
