The singer-actress will play Anita Appleby, a no-nonsense author of self-help books that teaches women how to mold the perfect man through the power of denial.
Executive producer and co-creator Carter Bays says, “We couldn’t be more excited about Jennifer Lopez joining us on How I Met Your Mother. We’re looking forward to a week of revealing outfits and sexy dance moves the likes of which this show hasn’t seen since Regis Philbin guest starred.”
The episode is scheduled to air in March. In other HIMYM news, CBS announced on Tuesday the series had been picked up for a sixth season to air in the fall. We’re not surprised—it’s one of the best shows on television! Congrats!
