How I Met Your Mother Season 8 is already a mess of romantic entanglements. Barney is engaged to Quinn, but we know he'll eventually end up engaged to Robin — but she'll have another significant boyfriend first. And then there's the mess that is Ted and Victoria.
But hey, that doesn't mean there isn't room for another crazy girl to step in and cause trouble!

Entertainment Weekly reports that Abby Elliott's first post-Saturday Night Live gig will be a multi-episode arc on HIMYM. According to executive producer Craig Thomas, Abby plays "Janeane, the craziest girl the HIMYM gang has ever encountered." Which is saying something, given some of the gals Barney has hooked up with in the past.
"The crazier Janeane gets, the more attractive one of the gang finds her," Craig teases. "It doesn’t end well.”
Hmmm … who do you think starts to lust after crazy Janeane? We could see this going in many directions.
Barney often has questionable taste, so it's possible Janeane will be the one to make him realize he and Quinn aren't meant to be. And, honestly, we could just retype that exact same sentence, replacing "Barney" with "Ted" and "Quinn" with "Victoria."
Or maybe the lusty member of the gang is one of our favorite married folks. We could see Marshall feeling guilty over finding Janeane hot, and then there's always Lily's latent bisexual tendencies...
How I Met Your Mother returns on Monday, Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
