HIMYM Cast Reenacts "Best of 2008"

Alyson Hannigan, Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, and Neil Patrick Harris reenact some of the year's most memorable moments...memorably!

The men lost a lot of hair to play the U.S. 4x200m relay team; Harris (far right) even cajoled Segel (far left) into shaving his 
armpits. "The guys sounded like they didn't think it was going to grow back," laughs Smulders. "Dude. Trust me. It grows back. 
 I wish it didn't. It does. You're gonna be fine."

"I don't often wear skinny jeans. It's not my thing. But I heroically squeezed into some," says Radnor. Harris worked to internalize his character deeply, as well: "I got to be the straight-ironed guy. Not the curly. I don't know their names...Alvin? Theodore?"

Hannigan (far left) ditched her heels before the shot: "I couldn't do it," she sighs. 
"They were too high. I had to catch Cobie and not fall on my face." Radnor (right), 
on the other hand, had no trouble stepping into Mr. Big's shoes: "I get hit with a 
 bouquet of flowers at least once a month."

Smulders (left) didn't see Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (she says the key to Cate Blanchett was "just look like a badass"), while Harris studied Indy hard: "It's sort of a quarter-squint. The lips go down, but there's a hint of a smile. But he's not amused, because he's always got other things in mind."

"It probably will just be an imitation of Tina Fey," admits Hannigan, before slipping on her Sarah Palin suit. For Segel, this role is a culmination of a lifelong dream: "Ever since I was a kid, I always imagined someday 
I'd get to play Joe Biden in a photo shoot."


These are pretty random "moments," but this cast is awesome.
