Katie Holmes Guest Starring on 'How I Met Your Mother'

Katie Holmes has been booked as a guest star on the special Halloween episode of How I Met Your Mother!

The 32-year-old actress will be playing the Slutty Pumpkin character – a potential love interest Ted (Josh Radnor) met at a previous Halloween bash.

Katie is a lovely and talented actress, which is why we’ve saved for her perhaps the most classily named character in our show’s history,” co-creator Craig Thomas told NYMag.com, adding that the role was “literally six seasons in the making.”

    oh noooo!!! this epic charatcter should not be played by her!

  • Frida

    Ugh no.

  • The Brit

    I hope this will be the final season and Josh Radnor and Cobie Smulders do more mainstream movies from now on like their co-stars.
    It has some positive qualities but they are really dragging it on now and are taking the mickey if they expect audiences to wait a few more years before they finally reveal who the mother is.
    They should have made it shorter but better written and they could have ended it by now.

  • here she is again

    lately, she is been (useless) everywhere.

    like they are forcing us “katie holmes ” down our throats;

    but i for one, has spit her out.

  • Reid

    I’m going to be so upset if she’s the mother, will waste all these years spent following the show.

  • BloodbuzzOhio

    That desperate? What a terrible show!

  • http://justjared POLO

    WHAT KINDA MAN WOULD HAVE “love interest” ON HER. she is one ugly gold-digger

  • just me

    Thought Rachel bilson suppose have been on it again? She isn’t a golddigger like rachel bilson is. At least she do make movies that be shown. Maybe rachel bilson should start dating a rich man or any man! lol

  • frida

    she boring me

  • friscosangel

    I always thought the slutty pumpkin was the mother…but i don’t want her to be the mother!!!

  • friscosangel

    I always thought the slutty pumpkin was the mother…but i don’t want her to be the mother!!!

  • Shawna

    You people are so ridiculous! You don’t even know her yet you like your opinion matters. She was really good in Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark and I’m sure she’ll be good in this as well.

  • http://justjared.com Noooooo

    Not watching the NO talent loser. Don’t really need to see her at the emmys nor presenting at the Oscars either. Homely is not talented enough to share the same air space of even little Abigail Breslin.

  • http://jtd slig o lambert ^_____^cute

    what is this?

  • friscosangel

    Why does JJ uses stars for S L U T T Y in my post, when they spell it out themselves? LOL

  • Elle

    @The Brit: Colbie Smulders in going to be in the avenger movie next spring. if thats not main stream, i dont know what is

  • http://fordakiim.com xen and nu

    good – she needs a job. xenu should help her out.

  • lexy hates bilson

    Go Katie! I don’t mind when the show actually puts a talented actress on!

  • Diane

    I I’ll watch the show, but I’m not happy that they didn’t pick a better actress for it.

  • jen

    i’ll watch for sure. all you people who say no are just haters.
    go katie!!!!

  • trish

    Wow, next thing you know and she will be on commercials! She has reached a new low

  • mimi

    NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sianna

    cool, I can picture her as a Ted’ girlfriends! they could make a cute couple

  • maddie

    Uh! Another guest star role!! What a career!!!
    Some people say “when Nicole Kidman was married to Tom Cruise she wasn’t a big actress either”…Suck it!! She was and still is a great actress. When she was married to Tom Cruise she worked with Robert Benton, Gus Van Sant, Jane Campion and Kubrick…Holmes plays guest star roles in Tv series and supporting characters in flop movies. I simply can’t stand the hype around her, she’s famous for her marriage and for that bratz of her daughter..It’s not that I hate her, I don’t know her but why is she famous?? Why is she paid millions of dollars?? Please, send this useless woman to Lala land…Forever…Thanks.

  • Question

    Does this mean that has spent enough time off focusing on her daughter’s significant insecurity issues? Will Suri be home-schooled on the set while toting a BABY blaket and sneaking BABY bottles? Has she been potty trained?

    (Okay, more than one question)

  • Jen

    Awww….not the s l u t t y pumpkin. :(

  • sillywillywee

    I guess Tom is at his wit’s end…trying to find something for her.

    Talented? LOL JJ!

    She can’t act….and she’s playing a sluttyrole? LOL….It will probably look funny instead.

    I guess its better than talking about Suri, cupcakes and how magical, amazing blah blah blah the brat is.

  • camillus

    Another show using a talentless hack for a gimmick. Another Fame Whore.

  • betta

    With her blah personality, they could have hired a pumpkin to be s-lutty and saved on her salary.
