'How I Met Your Mother' cast grows up: 200 episodes and a lot of 'real-life' milestones

When "How I Met Your Mother" premiered in 2005, the sense was that the show had assembled a strong cast, but it wasn't exactly a roster of household names.Alyson Hannigan, two years removed from the end of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," was probably the best-known at the time. Jason Segel had been a part of two cult favorites, "Freaks and Geeks" and "Undeclared," that lasted only one season apiece. Neil Patrick Harris had worked steadily since his "Doogie Howser" days but was a few years removed from his last leading role in the one-and-done NBC sitcom "Stark Raving Mad." Josh Radnor and Cobie Smulders were each taking on their first starring roles on TV.Nearly nine years and 199 episodes later, how things have changed. Smulders is now part of one of the biggest movie franchises on Earth. Segel has appeared in a series of hit movies, a couple of which ("The Muppets" and "Forgetting Sarah... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/how-i-met-your-mother-cast-grows-up-200-episodes-and-a-lot-of-real-life-milestones.html

The Final Scene of How I Met Your Mother Was Filmed Eight Years Ago

As we all know, How I Met Your Mother will be drawing to a close after this, it’s ninth final season. Few people thought the show would last THIS long, but the show creators had a feeling. As such, they were forced to film a key scene for the show  years and years ago. How I Met Your Mother centers on a man telling his kids the story of how he met their mother (duh), but as the show had gone on for so, so long, the kids have aged dramatically over the course of the age years. As the show became more popular, they realized they were going to have to film the climax before the kids got TOO old. The two (then child) actors filmed a two minute finale scene and forced to sign super secret confidentiality agreements so no one would ever know the ending until it was time. Actress Lyndsey Fonseca said she put it out of her mind so long ago, she doesn’t even remember what they filmed, so the secret’s safe with her, it seems.

Top Moments: American Horror Story Axes One of Its Own, and Mindy and Danny Finally Take Off

Our top moments of the week: 14. Dead Sexy Award: Boyd's story just keeps getting twist-ier on Justified . In order to get out of his latest beef with Paxton, Boyd convinces Sheriff Mooney to switch sides in the battle and tells Paxton he had indeed murdered Boyd. But in order to pull off the scheme, Mara suggests Paxton will need to see a dead body — or at least part of one. Ultimately, the pair decides — after upping the sexual tension by taking a guided tour of the tattoos on Boyd's naked torso — to re-create Boyd's ink on one of the body parts in Paxton's own morgue as a stand-in. Ironically, if prison-bound Ava knew about Boyd and Mara's sexy stand-off in the bar, Boyd might already be a...   http://www.tvguide.com/News/Moments-Mindy-Danny-Kiss-AHS-Death-1076498.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'How I Met Your Mother' Season 9, episode 15 - 'Unpause': Something good (and bad) happens after 2 a.m.

Since the title of Monday's (Jan. 20) episode of "How I Met Your Mother" is "Unpause," let's employ Marshall and Lily's fight-stalling tactic in discussing it. Much of it was a lot of fun, but I have one major beef with it. So ...Pause.Creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas said last week that we would learn the name of Ted's kids in this episode, but it still came as a pleasant surprise to see the episode open with Ted and his very pregnant wife about to welcome their second child. The show continues to be spot-on with its depiction of the Mother, which is helping Ted makes note of his own mom's rule that "nothing good happens after 2 a.m." and says the baby better hurry up. He doesn't, though, and when we return to Ted and the Mother at episode's end, Future Ted notes every rule has its exception -- aww. And those kids'... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/how-i-met-your-mother-season-9-episode-15-unpause-something-good-and-bad-happens-after-2-am.html
