'How I Met Your Mother': Chris Elliott gets a life as Lily's dad

Comedic actor Chris Elliott.
FOX, the studio behind " How I Met Your Mother," confirms that Elliott -- who had recurring sitcom roles on both "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "According to Jim" -- will play Lily's estranged pop, a good-for-nothing loser with a troubled past.
The episode will air in late November and likely debunk the "girls marry guys that remind them of their dad" myth.
