Where’s Whedon: How I Met Your Mother Edition

Why do Joss Whedon favorites keep showing up in “How I Met Your Mother”?

Recently the highly popular show How I Met Your Mother entered its ninth and final season in which we will finally see how Ted (Josh Radnor) meets the mother of his children. It’s been a long and immensely fun ride, but in this article I would like to focus on one of the show’s trends that people may or may not of picked up on; the Whedon Alumni. A large number of actors who have appeared on the show have worked with writer, director, and songwriter Joss Whedon (FireflyAvengersBuffy the Vampire Slayer).  One of the TV show’s leads, Alyson Hanigan who plays Lily Aldrin, played a major role in Whedon’s show Buffy as Buffy’s best friend Willow.

The slideshow above represents a small list of just a few of these alumni cameos.  Can you find the rest?
