Laura Bell Bundy to Recur on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER

Laura Bell Bundy

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER’s Robin will have a new co-host on Metro News One this season. Entertainment Weekly reports that Tony-nominated actress Laura Bell Bundy (Legally Blonde) will replace Ben Koldyke’s Don, who dumped Robin in last season’s finale before leaving town (and the show). Bundy’s role is recurring, for an unknown number of episodes, and her character will also apparently go out on a date with Ted.

In other How I Met Your Mother news, TV Guide says Ben Vereen has been cast as the father of Barney’s brother James (Wayne Brady) and will guest in the second episode of the season. Please let there be a song and dance number with Vereen, Brady, and Neil Patrick Harris.

How I Met Your Mother’s sixth season will premiere on CBS Monday September 20 at 8pm/7 central.

Does this casting news help get you excited for the new season or do you just want to know who the mother is, already?
