Martin Short to guest on 'How I Met Your Mother'

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.

Bad apples on 'Pretty Little Liars'

Nightmares are bad enough when they’re unrealistic. I can’t imagine dreaming about someone in a hooded sweatshirt cornering my friends and me in a dark movie theater, only to wake up knowing the event could actually happen. Foreshadowing, perhaps?

Melissa, searching for her lost wedding ring, wakes Spencer up from her bad dream before running upstairs to take a private phone call.

To fool their parents into thinking they’re taking time apart, the girls each start new activities. Emily continues swimming, Hanna begins working on the yearbook with Lucas and Spencer plays field hockey. Aria enrolls in an art class at the very same school where Fitz and his ex-fiancee Jackie (what a small world) teach. Another small world story for you: Jenna is in her class.

Tea Leoni and David Duchovny split

They've made up in the past but Tea Leoni and David Duchovny are once again going their separate ways.

A rep for Leoni, 45, tells CNN that reports of the couple splitting up are true.

It's not the first time for the pair, who have been married for 14 years, as they previously separated for months in 2008. At the time the 50-year-old "Californication" actor had undergone treatment for sex addiction, according to People, but Duchovny and Leoni then reconciled their relationship soon after.

The couple have two children together, 12-year-old Madelaine West and 9-year-old Kyd.

Bryan Cranston on his sexy 'Crowne' scene with Julia Roberts

Bryan Cranston, you're not alone - "True Blood's" Stephen Moyer totally gets the sock-on-set situation.

The “Breaking Bad” star revealed to CNN at the premiere of “Larry Crowne” on Monday that while Julia Roberts kept some clothes on for a sexy scene, Cranston was robed in nothing but a sock.

“I wish I was wearing a body sock...It went over one specific part of my body. I'm not kidding…I filled up about an eighth of it.”

'Mission: Impossible' 4 trailer: More Hunt, more stunts

'Mission: Impossible' 4 trailer: More Hunt, more stunts

Ethan Hunt returns for the fourth installment of the "Mission: Impossible" franchise, and thanks to the trailer we learn a little about what the "Ghost Protocol" in the title is referring to.

The clip starts things off with a literal bang, and before long Tom Cruise's Hunt and Jeremy Renner's Brandt are in the back of a car being told that thanks to an explosion at the Kremlin, the president has initiated "ghost protocol" and the entire IMF has been disavowed.

The trailer then launches into a rapid-fire set of cuts showing off the cast, including Simon Pegg, Paula Patton and Josh Holloway, plus plenty of stunts. What do you think - are you adding this to a must-see list?

"Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" opens in theaters December 16.

A new frontrunner on 'The Voice'

If Pat Benatar, David Bowie and the remaining members of Queen watched NBC's “The Voice” last night, then I'm sure they had BIG smiles on their faces.

For me, those were two of the best covers of two of their best songs.

It all started with the four coaches performing the 1981 song “Under Pressure” by Queen and David Bowie. What a perfect way to start the finals show. The long and high notes were Christina's while Blake and Adam had their solo moments showing off their strengths as well. And Cee Lo brought the soul to it, naturally.
