How I Met Your Mother Spoilers: Barney's Mom Cast

at . Comments

As we previously reported to you, Barney's mother and fake wife will be appearing in an upcoming episode of How I Met Your Mother.  Now, thanks to TV Guide, we got the news on who will play them!

Frances Conroy, best known for her Emmy award-winning role as the matriarch on Six Feet Under, has been cast as Ms. Stinson.  Though Barney's mother has previously appeared on How I Met Your Mother, her face was never shown (though she was voiced by Megan Mullaly).  Is a woman this proper believable as the slutty woman who produced Barney?

Now who will play Barney's fake wife that he's been lying about to his mother for all these years?  None other than Neil Patrick Harris' co-star from Harold & Kumar, Brooke D'Orsay!

Eric Hochberger is the programmer of TV Fanatic, so please forgive his mediocre writing. His programming is far better. Follow him on Twitter and/or email him. Just don't request threaded comments. They're coming.
