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.

  2. Mikaylah says:

    Oz! This is such great news, and I’m sure it’ll be a really fun episode.

  3. Luz says:

    I’m so excited!!!!! Oz & Willow were my favorite couple of BtVS (after Buffy & Angel)!!!!!! I want to see this episose now!

  4. Summer says:


  5. Christina says:

    Does anyone else think it would be completely AMAZING if they made Sarah Michelle Gellar be the mother??? I just want to start that rumor.

  6. dalunt says:

    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!

  7. Tony Poirier says:

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

  8. Amy says:

    As Xander would say, “Woo and may I add hoo”!!! Awesome, awesome, awesome.

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

    • Summer says:

      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.

  10. Andie says:

    I want Sarah Michelle Gellar as the mom

  11. Kristina says:

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

  12. Chelle says:

    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!

  13. Mike says:

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

  14. Tee says:

    So excited!

  15. Jerri says:

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

  16. DaddyCatALSO says:

    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.

  17. Svenja says:

    Best news ever. My Buffy fangirl heart is pounding hard

  18. Ella says:

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

  19. tara17 says:

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

  20. terry says:

    Chris’ voice from family guy came from buffalo bill, how could seth Greene be on the buffalo bill episode of himym and not use that voice?
