Glee Actress Headed For How I Met Your Mother — To Romance Ted?
How I Met Your Mother prepares to head into its ninth and final season. But before the CBS comedy series goes off the air for good, it’s getting a visit from a very familiar Glee face!
TV Line reports that Jayma Mays (Emma) will appear in the show’s March 18 as a coat check girl, and if you’ve been watching the show long enough, you likely already know that this isn’t her first time on the show.
Way back in Season 1, Jayma appeared in an episode called “Okay Awesome” as a nightclub coat check girl who Ted (Josh Radnor) flirted with. In this newest episode, “future versions of Ted and Barney” will show up and “try to convince Ted to go see Robots Versus Wrestlers.”
We’re not entirely certain how Jayma’s character fits into this whole equation, but we’re certainly hoping that she might secretly turn out to be one of the robots... or the wrestlers.
Since there’s no word so far on what her character will be up to, we don’t know for sure if Jayma will be a love interest for Ted once again. Still, given that he flirted with her last time — we’re thinking it’s definitely a possibility.
That said, Jayma will not end up turning out to be the show’s titular mother. Ted himself revealed that during a voiceover back in Season 1.
Just in case anyone’s forgotten, this isn’t the only time fans have seen a Glee/HIMYM crossover. Back in Glee Season 1, HIMYM’s favorite womanizer Neil Patrick Harris (Barney) made a guest appearance in Episode 19: “Dream On” as Bryan Ryan, an old high school rival of Will’s (Matthew Morrison).
So, Will’s runaway bride is headed straight toward his oldest rival? In some sort of weird alternate universe, yes indeed! Aren’t TV show crossovers the best?
