Battlestar Galactica’s Michael Trucco Will Return To ‘How I Met Your Mother’

Michael Trucco of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ fame will be returning to How I Met Your Mother this fall according to TV Line. Trucco has been cast in the role of a love interest for Robin (Colbie Smulders), after previously appearring on the show back in season 6 to play Robin’s “crush”. Show runners, who finally revealed to fans last season that Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin ultimately end up together, have inked a deal with the star for a recurring role.

Speaking to TV Line last year, executive producer Craig Thomas, shared what HIMYM show runners plan to do now that fans know Barney and Robin are meant to be. “We’re going to introduce a new love interest for Robin right away,” he shared. “It’s not going to be Barney and Robin together immediately, because they’re too tangled up in other things… We’ll show you how that [new] relationship ends up leading her back to Barney.”

To date Michael Trucco has starred in ‘Fairly Legal’ as Justin Patrick, ‘Young Justice’, the USA network TV series ‘Psych’, the sci-fi series ‘V’, ‘The Plan’, ‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘One Tree Hill’, ‘Eli Stone’ and the long running crime series ‘Law and Order: SVU’.
