Ellie Kemper to Guest Star on How I Met Your Mother

at . Comments

Ellie Kemper has scored an invite to Robin and Barney's wedding.

The former Office secretary will guest star on at least one episode of How I Met Your Mother Season 9, TV Line confirms, stopping by the CBS sitcom as Cassie.

The character is described by co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas as attractive, single and, as Ted will apparently discover, "unfortunate" guests at this fall's nuptials, around which the entire final HIMYM season will be based.

Awkward Meal Alert!

Earlier this week it was also confirmed that Sherri Shepherd would play a role on Season 9, coming on board as a plane passenger who tussles with Marshall.

HIMYM Quotes

Barney: Ladies and gentlemen, I have in my hand a copy of tonight's Top Ten list. The category: top ten things I would've called my truck...
Ted: It was never your truck.
Barney: if Ted hadn't been a jerk and given it back.
Ted: It was a rental.
Barney: Number ten, "The Winne-Bango." Number nine, "The Pick-Up Truck." Number eight, "The Ford Explore Her." Number seven, "The You Scream Truck." You Scream. (they all laugh) Number six, "Feels on Wheels!" Hello! Number five, "The Ride Her Truck." Number four, "The 18-Squeeler." Number three, "The Esca-Laid." Number two, "The Slam-Boney." and... the number one thing I would've called my truck if Ted hadn't been a jerk and given it back... "The '69 Chevy."

Sometimes things have to fall apart to make way for better things...we're done here.
