The antiquated way of sneakily asking, what would Neil Patrick Harris do, I decided to go exploring the outside jobs of our cast members; starting with How I Met Your Mother. Do Ted (Josh Radnor) and the Mother know each other offscreen? How many fan sites exist for Alyson Hannigan (Lily)? Who else thinks Cobie Smulders (Robin) should just take up modeling?
What the fans report.
Josh Radnor: After premiering his latest Sundance directorial project, Liberal Arts, last year, our Ted stayed faithful to his leading man How I Met Your Mother project. He only took one break for the little known—though hardly straight-to-Redbox fodder—romance Afternoon Delight in January 2013. Josh stays so committed!
Cobie Smulders: The woman with a full plate. Or four. Breaking in to the world of Marvel upped her exposure and her acting dexterity. She’ll begin touring press setups for her role in The Delivery Man, out October 2013, in addition to her three other film appearances in the coming two years: They Came Together, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and The Avengers 2 (2015).
(Marshall): We’ve seen our funny man in a few other projects outside the
series, by now, but I’m zoomed in on the latest come-up for the actor. That’s
right. I don’t even need to say it. Okay, I will—the Muppets sequel “The
Muppets…Again!” We’re dying for the release, right?
Don’t miss the comedy apocalypse parody This Is The End, either, starring Segel and the common Hollywood comedy crowd, coming soon!
Alyson Hannigan: ...is sticking to the series! She isn’t doing much besides taking care of her one and only during the HIMYM taping, though that doesn’t halt the number of dedicated fan and character websites on the Internet. Thanks, Buffy!
Neil Patrick Harris (Barney): Besides the countless TV appearances and hosting gigs this man gets, he’s travelling in the post-production hustle and bustle of both The Smurfs 2 and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. I know…there’s a sequel. Currently, he’s filming A Million Ways to Die in the West, out in 2014. More details on that flick later.
