The guest list for Barney and Robin’s How I Met Your Mother nuptials continues to grow.
TVLine has learned exclusively that The Office‘s Ellie Kemper is joining the CBS hit’s ninth and final season.
Kemper will play Cassie, “one of the most attractive, available, and — as Ted discovers — unfortunate guests at Barney and Robin’s wedding,” according to series co creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.
