Now that it's officially confirmed that How I Met Your Mother star Cobie Smulders has been cast as Agent Maria Hill in Joss's The Avengers, it's got us thinking: What's up with the HIMYM connection? First, Aly Hannigan gets a part on that show, which started in 2005. Then Neil Patrick Harris, who of course plays the infamous Barney Stinson on HIMYM, becomes crowned king of the Whedonverse (by me) as Dr. Horrible himself. Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Tom Lenk, Morena Baccarin, Danny Strong, and Harry Groener have all played guest roles.
So, since it's obvious that the show is some how cosmically intertwined to our world, is funnyman Jason Segel up next? I say hell yes because he's super-funny, loves vampires (he wrote a vampire musical in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"), and likes to show his penis. Bring it on, Joss! Just write a part for the man and be done with it.
