Laura Bell Bundy to Guest Star on How I Met Your Mother

at . Comments

Laura Bell Bundy is coming to How I Met Your Mother in a pivotal role.

The singer and stage veteran will not be playing the titular role, though.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Bundy, who played Elle Woods in the Broadway version of Legally Blonde, has been cast as Robin’s new co-host on Metro News One.

She succeeds Don, who left town in the May finale after a season in which he wooed, then ultimately dumped Robin for a job she turned down because of their relationship.

Rumor has it Bundy’s character will go out on a date with Ted, but she is not the “complicated and intriguing” love interest executive producer Craig Thomas has teased.

HIMYM Quotes

Ted [to Stella in his dream encounter]: You picked the wrong guy.
Stella: Ted?
Ted: You picked the wrong guy. You made a really, really, really bad choice. What were you thinking? That guy? Are you kidding me? Have you learned nothing in the last eight years? You're just gonna regret this. You know that, right? You are going to regret this, and now there is nothing you can do about it because it's too late. All you can do now is go up there and start your crappy, disappointing life that will never be nearly as happy as the one you could have had with me. Good-bye.
Stella: Ted, wait.
Ted: Look, Stella, I am not here to win you back. I am here because I need to know that you know you made the biggest mistake of your life.
Stella: I know

You are the love of my life. Everything I have and everything I am is yours. Forever.
