Clearly under the impression that because Cobie Smulders also stars in Joss Whedon’s upcoming The Avengers, CBS believes that “How I Met Your Mother” is expected to drop sneak peeks of future episodes on the regular, as well. Earlier we learned that former Joey/Suri’s mom Katie Holmes had been cast in the cameo role of the Slutty Pumpkin, continuing the show’s trend on recruiting forgotten “Dawson’s Creek” alumni (thank you, Joanna). Now, TVLine provides us with some photos of
the Slutty Pumpkin Naomi on-set and in-costume with Hanging Chad Ted, Apollo Creed Barney, and a Canuck Robin.
Yep, looks like a Halloween party on the roof of Ted and Robin’s building. The Slutty Pumpkin herself could stand to be a little “sluttier,” but I guess that wouldn’t be canon. At least we know that Holmes isn’t going to be the “Mother” Mother, as she’s only signed on to appear in the October 31st episode. Hey, that’s Halloween! It’s like they planned it.
Rob Payne also writes the indie comic The Unstoppable Force and tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar. He’s planning on going as Fat Jesus for Halloween (hat tip Zach Galifianakis), maybe Fat Zombie Jesus (hat tip “Futurama”).
