Wayne Brady and Ben Vereen to Guest Star on How I Met Your Mother

at . Comments

The second episode of the sixth season of How I Met Your Mother will feature the return of Wayne Brady as James Stinson - the gay, black brother of Barney (Neil Patrick Harris).

Wayne, who also hosts CBS's Let's Make A Deal, first introduced the character in 2006, and returned in 2007. The Stinsons are each other's ideal wingman - no competition!

The latest appearance by Barney's bro marks a new twist - James' dad, played by Ben Vereen. It's unclear specifically how the father figure will be in the mix, but it should be good.

Any episode with Barney's family members typically is. Especially when he pays them.
