Goodbye, Barney. Hello, Hedwig!

Ted Mosby has dated a lot of women on How I Met Your Mother. We wouldn't call him a "slut" exactly, nor would we describe his dates as "random skanks," but the architect has certainly had more than his fair share of Mrs. Right Nows along his journey to find Mrs. Right. Some of them were guest stars, some of them were series regulars, and some of them didn't even have names (sorry, Blah Blah – we mean, Carol). But rich or poor, blonde or brunette, one thing united them: They all fell under Mosby's strange spell.
And now is the time, in the grand tradition of nuts and pies, to rank them.

Over nine seasons, How I Met Your Mother has acquired an impressive list of celebrity guest appearances.
There was Britney Spears as the dippy dermatologist's assistant obsessed with Ted (Josh Radnor). There was Bryan Cranston as the architect whose buildings always seemed to resemble – how shall we put this delicately? – male anatomy. Even Jane Seymour ditched Dr. Quinn's period attire for the sexy style of Marshall's (Jason Segel) cougar law school professor whom Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) just couldn't tame.
But there's a much smaller circle of stars who've managed to do something even more unique: play themselves. Some became part of long-running gags, others only filmed one-off appearances – but all were legen–wait for it–dary.

From the "pineapple incident" to the slutty pumpkin, look back at the storylines that gave us food for thought

We already have our tissues ready for the series finale of How I Met Your Mother on Monday, but this makes it a little easier to bear.
The cast of the show got together for an episode of Inside the Actors Studio on Thursday, and when they did, it was … legendary.
There were lots of laughs, but the best moment came when Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel performed an impromptu duet of "Confrontation" from the musical Les Miserables.

The How I Met Your Mother series finale, the 30th anniversary reissue of Cyndi Lauper's She's So Unusual and more can't-miss entertainment

If playing a flamboyant transgender punk rocker sounds out of character for Neil Patrick Harris, you've got company. The star himself admits his upcoming Broadway role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch pushes him outside of his comfort zone – but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
"Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me," the actor tells Out for its April cover story. "I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I've never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really." (Notable exception: he ably accepted the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Award in drag in February, although he donned a more traditional tux while attending a gala for the group Monday night.)
"I've lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity – it’s why I like guys," he also tells the magazine. "I'm not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself."

Ever watch a show and wish you could be transported into that restaurant booth to hang out with the characters?

With a handful of episodes left before the cast of How I Met Your Mother go their separate ways, Neil Patrick Harris acknowledges that it's a bittersweet time.
"We're saying the word 'last' a lot more than we ever did," he told PEOPLE on Wednesday during a Television Critics Association set visit. "We knew that it was going to come to an end, but we never really talked about the end, so this season has been filled with a lot of us saying, 'Oh.' "
As Harris and his castmates Cobie Smulders, Josh Radnor, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan fielded questions from reporters, both of the actresses said, "You guys really want us to cry."
