As we ponder how the upcoming season of “How I Met Your Mother” will shake out, here’s a new tidbit to chew on.
Following “Kids in the Hall” alum Dave Foley’s guest role as Marshall’s (Jason Segel) potential new boss, CBS has tapped Martin Short to become the real deal...at least for a while.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Short, who’s known for his hilarious antics but recently has taken on a few dramatic roles, will have a multi-episode arc as Marshall’s boss at an environmental law firm.
The 61-year-old “Saturday Night Live” star has been racking up the small screen roles, with guest spots on “Damages” and the new season of Showtime’s “Weeds,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
