HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER Casts for a Big Wedding!

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER premieres on Monday, but our new HIMYM aficionado premieres today.  Please welcome Jen to Team GMMR!! 

(The following contains minor spoilers, so do with that what you will)

Hey, I’m Jen and I am soooo thrilled to be covering How I Met Your Mother that I had to write in about some casting news before the show starts up again this Monday, September 22nd at 8:30 PM on CBS.

Ok for this casting news, I’m going to need you to think alllll the way back to last season (it feels like forever ago, right?)  Remember when Stella asked Ted to be her date to her sister’s wedding?  You know, and he flipped out and broke up with her? Remember? Yeah, so the wedding is on and the casting has begun.

First and foremost, the bride to be: Stella’s sister, Nora. Originally Sara Paxton (“Greetings from Tuscan”, “Summerland” & “Darcy’s Wildlife”) was given the part but Craig Thomas and Carter Bays realized (what I had originally thought upon reading this piece of news) – she’s too young for the role. So, now the part has been given to Danneel Harris. Harris is best known as One Tree Hill bad girl Rachel Gatina.

Now don’t feel bad for Paxton. Thomas & Bays loved Sara and hope to find another role for her. So, add her name underneath Alicia Silverstone’s on the list of actresses to be cast later on the show. Hopefully Thomas and Bays have their priorities straight and find something for Silverstone first.

Unfortunately for Stella, Nora seems to not be the best kind of sister. Or just loves awkward moments. Or has read, because an invite to the wedding was sent to Stella’s onetime lover, and the father of her daughter, Tony. Oh no! Jason Jones, a correspondent for The Daily Show, will be checking in as Tony and I’m guessing he’ll be carrying some monkey wrenches.

Assuming that Ted will meet more of Stella’s family at the wedding, expect more casting news.


And stay tuned for Monday when we get ready for the new season of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.  I know Stella’s answer to Ted’s big question…but will I tell you?

    Thanks for the info. I am looking forward to the show’s return.

    As a quibble, you have a “typo” in the header:
    “HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER premieres today on Monday…”

    I think you mean “this week” on Monday.

    I don’t want to say too much but I can tell you that I’ve seen the premiere and its’ awesome…especially if you are a fan of NPH – and come on…who isnt?

    OOh, I don’t want to give out too many spoilers for the season premiere. It is only two days away! But we will see Barney’s apartment again including the Storm Trooper and the TV/wall.
