Will Forte Heads Back to HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER

Will Forte

Will Forte (MacGruber) may have left Saturday Night Live behind, but he’s going back to HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.

TV Guide reports that Forte will reprise his role as Randy, Goliath Bank drone and Barney’s “rebound bro” from season three in this fall’s sixth episode, “The Dark Side.”

According to HIMYM co-creator Craig Thomas, “Will Forte was absolutely hilarious, so we’ve been dying to bring him back for three years.” As for what brings Randy back, Thomas said, “Marshall will wrestle with whether or not to fire Randy, who is as hopeless as a paralegal as he is with the ladies. There is also a shocking twist as it becomes clear that Robin – in a moment of weakness – may or may not have hooked up with Randy on Halloween night.” To make Robin look even worse, Randy was apparently dressed as a lobster at the time.

How I Met Your Mother airs on CBS Mondays at 8pm/7 central.
