Dad won’t come home.
In the latest installment of Wondercade news, Neil Patrick Harris interview How I met your father star Hilary Duff, who asked him if he would consider reprising his Emmy-nominated role as Lady Barney Stinson’s man on How I meet your Mother sequel series. That’s when Harris suggested that Barnacle’s “farce” wouldn’t fly in the #MeToo era, and that the show would be better without him.
“As for joining your show (insert joke here), I’m worried,” Harris said. “Barney’s antics, his excessive delusions of grandeur, can get people into trouble. So unless he changes his ways or joins a monastery (insert a joke here), it’s unlikely it’s in anyone’s best interest.”
Meanwhile, Duff theorizes that every scam, scam, scam, scam, gambit, flimflam, scheming and Barney’s habit of drinking, dining, and scoring with women would land him in serious legal trouble.
“I’m not sure how you feel about this, but I’m pretty sure Barney will… go to jail in 2022,” she said. “Since we live in a world where women are in power, I suppose that’s why they do it [Barney-esque character Valentina] a woman!”
Original series creator Carter Bays previously lamented about Mommy-ships creative misstep in a Twitter thread last summer. “I’m not going to go into specifics,” he said at the time, “but I’m just saying that I’d love to go into the editing room and see George Lucas about this, and remove some of the stuff that I’ve worked on.” desire. there and I bet no one will miss it.”
Bays pointed out that his commentary followed watching episode 18 of Season 3, “Rebound Bro,” in which Barney helped upset man Randy Wharmpess (recurring guest star Will Forte) pick up women at MacLaren’s. To improve Randy’s low voice, Barney enlisted the help of a Reluctant Robinthreatened to leak a sex tape of the two if she didn’t comply.
Before How I met your fatherdebut, fans of HIMYM theorized that Barney could be the official father (abnormal). Theories have since changed, with some now believing he will be revealed as the father to Duff’s Sophie (more likely).
So what do you think? Do you hope that Harris will appear on How I met your father? Or do you agree with his claim that the sequel series would be better without Barney?
