Carrie Underwood learns 'How I Met Your Mother'
'American Idol' winner will romance Josh Radnor's Ted
"American Idol" winner and country superstar Carrie Underwood is set to show off her acting skills on CBS' "How I Met Your Mother."
In a March episode of the long-running comedy, which celebrates its 100th episode next Monday, Underwood will play Tiffany, a pharmaceutical sales rep who becomes a potential love interest for Josh Radnor's Ted.
Might Underwood be the "Mother" of the title? We're just going to go out on a limb and say "No," though "How I Met Your Mother" got a nice ratings bump from a guest appearance by Britney Spears, so they may be hoping musical magic strikes twice.
Underwood recently showed some comedy moves in FOX's "Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special," but this will be her television acting debut.
