Ellie Kemper has landed a guest star role in the final season of How I Met Your Mother.
Kemper will play Cassie, “one of the most attractive, available, and–as Ted discovers–unfortunate guests at Barney and Robin’s wedding,” executive producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas told TVLine. Kemper is set to appear in at least one episode. The entire ninth season will take place over Barney and Robin’s wedding weekend, so it is possible that she may be present in more episodes.
Kemper is most known for her role as receptionist Erin in the comedic mockumentary the Office.
How I Met Your Mother has had famous guest stars in the past including Katy Perry, Oprah, and Regis Philbin. Season 9 gains several new faces including guest star Sherri Sheperd, Wayne Brady will have a recurring role and Cristin Milioti has been confirmed as a regular.
The final season of How I Met Your Mother premieres Monday, September 23 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
