Fashion consultant Tim Gunn will share a scene with Neil Patrick Harris' Barney while singer Kenny Rogers is part of a tear-jerker scene.
Two more names are mentioned as the special guest stars coming to "How I Met Your Mother" this season. Apart from hiring "Project Runway" mentor Tim Gunn for the 100th episode, the show is also tapping musician Kenny Rogers to show up in the October 19 episode.
Gunn, true to his real job, will be a personal tailor and fashion consultant for Barney who is trying to fix a "major league 'Suit Catastrophe' ". Craig Thomas, co-creator of the series told Chicago Tribune, "Tim is basically like Barney's ER physician for a serious suit emergency." Barney in fact is a character in the comedy show who takes suits very seriously.
Last week, it was confirmed that Rachel Bilson is also making a cameo in the special episode. Thomas commented, "We're really excited to have Tim on the show, and, with Rachel Bilson cast as a Ted love interest and a huge musical number to boot, it's gonna make Episode 100 even more fun and special."
Rogers' stint meanwhile has been confirmed by CBS. In the episode called "Dual Citizenship", Ted and Marshall take a road trip to Chicago to relive a cherished college memory. However, their plan hits a big obstacle when Lily tags along. This, according to IGN, leads to a tear-jerking moment involving Rogers' performance.
