Seth GreenHow I Met Your Mother is reuniting Willow and Oz!

Seth Green — who, of course, played Alyson Hannigan’s werewolf boyfriend on Buffy the Vampire Slayer — will guest-star on an upcoming Season 8 episode of the CBS sitcom, TVLine has confirmed.

Even better news: His storyline will find him crossing paths with his former castmate! Green’s character Daryl LaCoutre considered Lily (Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) his best friends in college. However, they barely remember the guy. Despite the discrepancy, Daryl is still living in their college town and is creepily obsessed with having the new parents in his life.

The episode is tentatively slated to air Dec. 10.

Green — whose credits also include Robot Chicken and Family Guy — is the latest in a long line of Joss Whedon show alumni to visit the hit comedy. Past guests include Amy Acker (Angel, Dollhouse), Tom Lenk (Buffy), Morena Baccarin (Firefly), Harry Groener (Buffy), Alexis Denisof (Buffy, Angel) and Danny Strong (Buffy).

The casting was first reported by the show’s official Twitter account.

    • Oz and Willow were the best couple on buffy right up there with Xander and Anya. Next can we please get Emma Caulfield on the show?

  • You can now count nph for dr horrible and Cobie since she was in Avengers (and would’ve been his choice for Wonder Woman).

    Maybe they can get Nathan Fillion and Sarah Gellar to guest for this season too!

  • Now what would it take to get Amber Benson and Nicholas Brendon on the show?

  • Couldn’t we also call it an “my step mother is an alien” reunion?

    • Sure, but that reunion technically already happened on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Given that this is their first time working together after that, it’s a BtVS reunion.

  • I want Sarah Michelle Gellar as the mom

  • Nice! Maybe I have 2 reasons to watch this season!

  • I was always disappointed that HIMYM didn’t cast Seth Green as Scooter as an inside joke to Buffy fans. So I love this news! Yay, Oz!

  • They should have cast him as a married man with Amber Benson as his wife.

  • So excited!

  • They need to get Joss Whedon to write and direct an episode. But maybe they’re saving that for the series finale?

    Comment by Jerri – October 27, 2012 07:01 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I dunno, I wish they’d cast AMber as “the Mother,” which would be more than a guest spot. Or Emma or iyari for that matter.

  • I’m just waiting for Charisma Carpenter to show up as the mother.

  • I second all the Whedonverse suggestions presented here. Side note, impressed with Danny Strong’s accomplishments, Superstar!
