American Idol: Carrie Underwood to Guest Star on ‘How I Met Your Mother’

February 24, 2010 08:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


It seems that American Idol season four winner 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 on CBS‘ How I Met Your Mother. Carrie Underwood dishes about kissing a piglet, dressing up as a flight attendant, and meeting the cast…

American Idol star Carrie Underwood opens up about her TV acting debut saying, “I got to hang out with the whole cast, dress up like a flight attendant, play a cavewoman and had a baby pig poop on me…that’s right…jealous?” She’s referring, of course, to her upcoming guest role on CBS‘ hit sitcom, How I Met Your Mother. In the episode, which airs in March, Carrie Underwood will play a mysterious pharmaceuticals rep and potential love interest for Ted (played by Josh Radnor).

Underwood says the cast and crew “made me feel right at home and were super patient and great with me and my lack of experience!” Among her many responsibilities (which included dressing as a flight attendant), the American Idol champ had to kiss a pig! About the experience, Underwood says, “I’m just glad I grew up on a farm because I think I was the only one who knew how to hold and wasn’t afraid of a little piglet!”

Has the American Idol starlet been bitten by the acting bug? “I’m giving up the music business and I’m going to become a professional sitcom actress,” Carrie Underwood wrote on her website. Don’t worry…it’s just a joke. She added, “Just kidding, of course, but I did have a blast while I was there!”

How I Met Your Mother airs on CBS on Monday nights at 8pm EST.
