J.Lo will guest star on an upcoming March episode o f "How I Met Your Mother," CBS announced Wednesday, (Jan. 27).

"We couldn't be more excited about Jennifer Lopez joining us on 'How I Met Your Mother,'" says executive producer and co-creator Carter Bays.  "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."

Lopez will play self-help author Anita Appleby, whose approach to keeping men in check is through denial. She makes it her project to "break" Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) when she learns about his womanizing ways from Robin (Cobie Smulders).

Ah, but who will break whom? We predict this battle of wills will be legen -- wait for it -- dary.

"HIMYM" tends to have a constant influx of guest stars and recently shot an episode with "American Idol's" Carrie Underwood. Lopez was also rumored to be a possible guest star for FOX's "Glee."
