John Lithgow will guest star on the hit TV series How I Met Your Mother where he will play none other than Neil Patrick Harris’ dad on the CBS sitcom.
If Lithgow is half as good as he was on 3rd Rock From The Sun, it should be a treat to watch him play the character of Jerome Whitaker on the show which is set to air “later this season.”
If you’re a fan of the show, as I am, you are probably aware that Barney (Patrick’s character) has spent years searching for his dad, but has never managed to find him.
At this time it’s still unclear what type of role Lithgow will portray during his guest appearance.
You can catch new episodes of How I Met Your Mother on Mondays at 8/7 Central.
