"How I Met Your Mother" fans will finally get to meet the fabled Slutty Pumpkin this October and she's going to look a lot like Joey Potter.
CBS announced this week that Katie Holmes will guest star in the "HIMYM" episode titled "Perfect on Paper," playing the Slutty Pumpkin, a character first mentioned way back in Season One.
"We're thrilled to have Katie Holmes joining us this Halloween to play a role literally six seasons in the making," stated series co-creator Craig Thomas. "Katie is a lovely and talented actress, which is why we've saved for her perhaps the most classily-named character in our show's history: The Slutty Pumpkin."
But will Katie Holmes turn out to be the mother of Future Ted's Future Kids? Probably not.
Other credits for Holmes (other than "Dawson's Creek," of course) include "The Kennedys," "Eli Stone" and "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark."
