Katie Holmes Cast in How I Met Your Mother As...

File this under Casting News We Did Not See Coming:

Katie Holmes has landed the much-talked-about-although-never-before-seen role of Slutty Pumpkin on How I Met Your Mother. The character has been referenced numerous times since season one as a woman Ted met at a Halloween party, but lost touch with soon afterward.

Hyping the role as "literally six seasons in the making," co-creator Craig Thomas tells Vulture that "Katie is a lovely and talented actress, which is why we've saved for her perhaps the most classily named character in our show’s history."

Of course, another love interest from Ted's past also returned on the seventh season premiere. What does the future hold for this bachelor and Victoria? The answer awaits.


This is going to be so interesting to watch. I'm excited about this addition. And I agree with an aforementioned comment, bring back the round table! :)


Bring back round tables!!!

Well, to compliment HIMYM it does seem that they are going all out this season (is Katie Holmes the one?). Perhaps, Kate Mara will be Ted's future wife (I heard from a friend that the actors had good chemistry in a movie). But I always questioning myself with the clues on who the mother should be? In my mind it's Zooey Deschanel or Rachel lee Cook. Any preferences?


@Spindae, I know she was on Dawson's Creek, I just never watched it.


@fortyseven Katie Holmes acted in Dawson's Creek for 6 seasons! An that's how she got famous! Un-famous she got by marrying Tom Cruise!


I'm surprised Tom Cruise allowed this.


I always hoped we's get to see TSP. Is Katie Holmes that great an actress? I think I've seen her in one movie and no tv shows.


hahahah! Going back to the basics! The slutty pumpkin story was amusing! And Victoria coming back is great to! But I'm really interested who will be cast as the ONE, my guess Alyssa Milano!! Katie will do a fine job I believe!
