The California Gurl will appear in an upcoming episode of the sitcom as the beautiful and naïve cousin of Jennifer Morrison’s Zoey. And since CBS is billing Perry’s character — whom the gang (affectionately?) dubs “Honey” — as a possible love interest for Ted, it’d seem that Mr. Mosby’s nascent romance with the lovely architecture advocate is due for some sort of detour.

Perry’s only previous acting-ish work has been a snuffed appearance on Sesame Street, a saucy Simpsons stop-by and the voice of Smurfette in the upcoming motion picture about some silly blue, animated kiddie show characters.
