There's another familiar face returning to How I Met Your Mother!

Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as Ted Mosby's boss, Hammond Druthers, in an upcoming episode this season.

The actor, whose own AMC drama is set to conclude this weekend, previously appeared on the show in 2006 and 2007, where he served as Ted's superior at an architecture firm.

Though it remains to be seen in what capacity Ted (Josh Radnor) will have a run-in with his former foe, he is not the last guest star to cameo on the show for its final season.

What We Learned About the Mother on How I Met Your Mother

Originally posted 09/24/2013 03:15PM

Earlier this year, the audience finally met How I Met Your Mother's titular star, and on Monday's season nine premiere, one more person joined that elusive club – just not Ted himself.

Over the course of two back-to-back episodes, Ted's best friend Lily (Alyson Hannigan) met his dream woman on board a train headed to the fictional Farhampton, Long Island, where Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) are set to wed. It marked the first major scenes for actress Cristin Milioti, who made her debut as the much-anticipated mother in last May's season finale. As the show progresses towards its series finale in 2014, the audience will continue to learn more about Ted's as-yet unnamed wife-to-be, but in case you missed it, here's what we learned on Monday:

Emmy Host Neil Patrick Harris: My Kids Love Our Show Biz Lives

Originally posted 09/20/2013 09:15AM

Neil Patrick Harris and his fiancé David Burtka haven't specifically told their twins about their entertainment careers.

That said, Harris, 40, who is hosting Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, says their professional paths are pretty apparent because they've given their nearly 3-year-old little ones a very hands-on experience.

"I don't have any reason to tell them what we do for a living," the How I Met Your Mother funnyman told PEOPLE on Wednesday at an Emmy preview. "They've come to set. They know the crew. They got to come to the Tony rehearsals and watch the Cinderella dancers with all of their finest gownery and do their dancing, which was cool."

The singing and dancing triple threat, who hosted the Tony Awards for the fourth time on June 9 (to great reviews), is set to don a wig, dress and high heels for his role as a German transgender rock singer in spring 2014's first Broadway production of the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which features a book by John Cameron Mitchell and music and lyrics by Stephen Trask.
