Former Buffy Actor To Appear On How I Met Your Mother
Buffy fans will appreciate this bit of news, which was revealed tonight by Alyson Hannigan via Twitter. It seems Hannigan is going to be reuniting with someone from the Buffyverse in an upcoming episode of How I Met Your Mother.
Details are vague right now but earlier today, Hannigan tweeted the following: “I'm working with an old Buffy friend this week on HIMYM. Any guesses?”
Hannigan confirmed that the correct answer is: Danny Strong, who played the recurring role of geek/superstar/geek-again/villainous-geek Jonathan in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. More recently, Strong appeared in Mad Men. He was also in one of my ultimate guilty-pleasure movies Sydney White (an underrated gem of a film and modern day take on Snow White). What Strong will be doing on How I Met Your Mother, Hannigan didn’t say, nor did she mention when he’ll be appearing. Still, it’s a Whedonverse reunion and we love those.
On a related note, CBS posted the podcast for this week’s episode (“False Positive”). You can catch that below and if you haven’t seen it yet, Barney’s blog has been updated to include his “Favorite Things.”
How I Met Your Mother airs Mondays at 8/7c on CBS.
