Afternoon Links: Meet the How I Met Your Mother Mother

Introducing How I Met Your Mother‘s mother, Cristin Milioti. The Tony-nominated (Once) actress’s musician skills helped her land the role (“her ukulele skills are no joke“), a big credit in her relatively thin résumé (though you may remember her as Johnny Sack’s thin daughter, Catherine, or a sexy baby on 30 Rock), which will be further bolstered by a role in November’s The Wolf of Wall Street. The creators “kind of felt bad for Cristin because it was really like Jesus has risen when she showed up on the set — the whole crew was like ‘Here she is, the women we’ve been waiting for for 10 years!’ And she’s like, ‘I’m just an actor.’”
