Exclusive: Laura Bell Bundy joins 'How I Met Your Mother' as [spoiler alert]!
Image Credit: Bob Charlotte/PR Photos; Monty Brinton/CBSAnd How I Met Your Mother‘s titular mama is…not Laura Bell Bundy! But the stage vet/country singer has scored a recurring role on the hitcom—and a fairly pivotal one at that.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that Bundy—who played Elle Woods in the Broadway version of Legally Blonde—has been cast as Robin’s new cohost on Metro News One. She succeeds Don (Ben Koldyke), who left town in May’s season finale after dumping Robin.
Rumor has it Bundy’s character will go out on a date with Ted, but it’s my understanding that she is not the “complicated and intriguing” new love interest exec producer Craig Thomas mentioned in this week’s Ask Ausiello. (Additional reporting by Whitney Pastorek)
