It seems thatÂ American Idol season four winnerÂ Carrie Underwood is everywhere these days! She recently performed at the Super Bowl, is set to star in a new movie, nabbed a few Grammys, and now she’s about to return to TV in a guest role onÂ CBS‘Â How I Met Your Mother.Â Carrie Underwood dishes about kissing a piglet, dressing up as a flight attendant, and meeting the cast…
American Idol starÂ Carrie Underwood opens up about her TV acting debut saying,Â â€œI got to hang out with the whole cast, dress up like a flight attendant, play a cavewoman and had a baby pig poop on meâ€¦thatâ€™s rightâ€¦jealous?â€ She’s referring, of course, to her upcoming guest role onÂ CBS‘ hit sitcom, How I Met Your Mother. In the episode, which airs in March,Â Carrie Underwood will play a mysterious pharmaceuticals rep and potential love interest for Ted (played by Josh Radnor).
Underwood says the cast and crewÂ â€œmade me feel right at home and were super patient and great with me and my lack of experience!â€ Among her many responsibilities (which included dressing as a flight attendant), theÂ American Idol champ had to kiss a pig! About the experience,Â Underwood says,Â â€œIâ€™m just glad I grew up on a farm because I think I was the only one who knew how to hold and wasnâ€™t afraid of a little piglet!â€
Has theÂ American Idol starlet been bitten by the acting bug? “Iâ€™m giving up the music business and Iâ€™m going to become a professional sitcom actress,â€Â Carrie Underwood wrote on her website. Don’t worry…it’s just a joke. She added, â€œJust kidding, of course, but I did have a blast while I was there!â€
How I Met Your Mother airs onÂ CBS on Monday nights at 8pm EST.
