How I Met Your Mother Finds Victoria a Fiancé to Abandon
Now that Ted has become the guy who steals the bride instead of being the one who gets left at the altar, he has a unique perspective on weddings that will cause quite a bit of guilt when How I Met Your Mother returns for Season 8. We last saw Ted driving off into the sunset, hand-in-hand with possible “the one” Victoria. The catch is, as we’ll see in the fall premiere, Ted will want to turn the car around when he learns Victoria left her fiancé at their wedding without a proper note explaining her absence. But before they can make the trip back, an actor needs to be cast to play the man Victoria was supposed to marry.
According to EW.com, Thomas Lennon has been tapped to play the poor shmuck that is Klaus, Victoria’s fiancé. Because he knows the hurt that comes from being left at the altar, Ted can’t abide letting Klaus not at least know why he’s been abandoned on his wedding day. I can’t think of anyone better to play this Klaus character than Lennon. He has this amazing ability to make the most dull characters pop off the screen. Just check him out in any TV or film role he’s had in the best few years and tell me he doesn’t stand out. He even managed to grab my attention in The Dark Knight Rises and he was on screen for all of one minute.
I’m really looking forward to see Josh Radnor, who plays Ted, and Lennon playing off one another. Both actors are great comedically, so the laughs should be nonstop as long as they’re together. And the awkwardness of the situation should be delightful as well. I can’t decide if I think Lennon will play the character straight or if he’ll be more of a wacky character. Lennon can do both very well, but he’s definitely at his best when he’s just a touch below over-the-top.
