Fans are still waiting to meet the mom on "How I Met Your Mother," but (spoiler alert?) it's not going to be Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
"How I Met Your Mother" star Jason Segel says he's been pulling for Clinton to portray the mysterious titular mom on the series when he's asked about the character on red carpets, and has even said that he wants to make a movie with her (title? "Sarah Marshall 2: This Time It's Personal").
But Clinton's since politely declined his offer with a rejection letter, as the actor explained to Jimmy Fallon last week.
In the purported note, acquired by Politico, Clinton said she was "delighted" that Segel wanted her to be his co-star, but, "as you can imagine, I am a little occupied at the moment."
Instead of simply crushing his dreams, Clinton cushioned the fall with a glimmer of hope: "Perhaps someday I can help you forget Sarah Marshall...again," she wrote, in a nod to Segel's role in 2008's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." "My only condition is that there be Muppets involved, and that is non-negotiable."
A Segel fan after our own hearts. (And sorry, Jason. Better luck next time?)
