Jennifer Morrison isn't just coming to How I Met Your Mother. The former House star might be taking on the character fans have been waiting years to meet.
While sources won't confirm whether or not Morrison is the mother, but Entertainment Weekly reports she'll appear on 13 episodes of the CBS hit this season.
The actress will portray a love interest for Ted, a witty, controversy-causing activist who initially clashes with him over the planned demolition of a New York landmark.
Morrison does have experience playing the role of mother to an iconic individual: she gave birth to Captain James. T.Kirk in the latest Star Trek movie.
** UPDATE: This is a done deal. Morrison will play Zooey, who producer Craig Thomas describes as “the biggest female character we’ve maybe ever added to the show in Ted’s life,... this is a huge arc."
