'How I Met Your Mother' adds Martin Short to replace Dave Foley
Following the comedian's uncharacteristic 2010 stint on "Damages," it looks like he'll be hamming it up on "How I Met Your Mother."
Vulture reports that the "HIMYM" team has settled on Short to replace Dave Foley in the recurring role of Marshall's ( Jason Segel) new boss.
Don't weep for Foley, though. He's no longer eligible for the part (first seen in the Season 6 finale) now that his new comedy "How to Be a Gentleman" was also picked up by CBS.
Foley appeared as "Mr. Bloom," and since production on Season 7 of "HIMYM" has yet to start, it's unclear whether Short will be taking on the same character or another higher-up at Marshall's environmental law firm.
