Cranston reprises his role as Hammond Druthers, Ted's former boss, and he won't take a 'no' answer for his offer.
A new preview for the next episode of "How I Met Your Mother" gives a longer look at Bryan Cranston's return. Making its way out via Entertainment Weekly, it shows the former "Breaking Bad" actor in character as Hammond Druthers, Ted's former boss.
Hammond calls Ted, who is apparently watching a basketball game with Marshall, to offer him a job. When Ted quickly says "no" to his offer, Hammond threatens to vent his anger on Ted's Facebook wall, but Ted points out that they're not friends on Facebook.
In "Platonish" which will air Monday, November 11 at 8/7c on CBS, the gang ponders the future of the Ted, Robin and Barney love triangle in a flashback. Meanwhile, Barney accepts a series of challenges from Lily and Robin, one of which is getting a girl's number while talking like a dolphin.
Cobie Smulders who plays Robin recently revealed that they just shot an episode wherein all the dialogue rhymes. "It's like every second line is a rhyme. It varies; you gotta watch it!" she told E! News.
