Laura Prepon Joins How I Met Your Mother

Laura Prepon, best known for her role as Donna on That ‘70s Show, already has a new gig lined up.

News broke of her current show October Road getting canceled just last week. But leave it to the folks at How I Met Your Mother to always welcome new characters to the cast.

Laura will be appearing on the sitcom later this season, playing Karen, who is an ex and future girlfriend of Ted’s. Many are speculating that Laura could in fact be the “mother” that is suggested in the title.

Laura’s going to have a lot of fun with this character either way, as the script calls for her to be bitchy and beautiful, and notorious for cheating on her boyfriends to avoid having to go through the effort of dumping them. That’s a far cry from her girl-next-door role on That ‘70s Show.

As for now, Laura is only slated to appear on five episodes. Tune in this season to find out if she’s indeed the mother of Ted’s children!
