"How I Met Your Mother" has tapped Martin Short for a recurring role, according to New York Magazine's Vulture. The 61-year-old comedian will reportedly portray Marshall's new boss in the upcoming season, replacing Dave Foley.

Foley portrayed Mr. Bloom who interviewed Marshall (Jason Segel) for a job at an environmental law firm in season 6. The "Wrong Guy" actor, however, will not be able to return to season 7 since his sitcom pilot "How to Be a Gentleman" is picked up by CBS.

It is unclear whether Short will take over Foley's role or he will appear as an entirely new character. It will be the first extended comedy role Short has tackled for American TV since his appearance on Comedy Central's series "Primetime Glick".
