Lisa Edelstein is trading a House for a Castle.
The TV MVP is joining the ABC hit’s Season 6 cast for a multiple-episode arc, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The actress will play Rachel McCord, a tough and highly-skilled Federal Investigator whose appearance plays a vital role in Beckett’s decisions about her future.
As you know, Season 5 ended with Beckett considering a move to Washington D.C. to work on a special task force in the U.S. Attorney General’s office — a decision presumably complicated by Rick proposing marriage in the very final scene.
Just got back from my 1st HIMYM fitting of the season! Can't wait to shoot on Wed! You may be seeing a little more "James" this season! Yes!— Wayne Brady (@waynebrady) July 8, 2013
How I Met Your Mother‘s wedding-set final season is, fittingly, turning out to be a family affair.
Wayne Brady will return to the CBS comedy in a recurring capacity as Barney’s brother James in Season 9, TVLine has confirmed.
