Excerpt from "Exclusive: 'How I Met Your Mother' throws an all-star wedding!"
Remember last May, when How I Met Your Mother’s Ted (Josh Radnor) lost Stella (Sarah Chalke) to Tony (Jason Jones) at the altar? Well, as we first teased last month, the screenplay Tony wrote is now a star-studded movie, and in this season’s next-to-last episode, our hero — and we — will be seeing it!
In the May 17 installment, Ted takes a date — played by 2010’s go-to guest star Judy Greer (Modern Family last month, The Big Bang Theory next month) — to a showing of The Wedding Bride, which Tony penned about his love triangle with his rival and Stella. But it’s fair to say that the author’s take on the situation is… um, skewed.
The film’s protagonist, Tony, is played by Sex and the City Adonis Jason Lewis, and Stella, by Watchmen hottie Malin Akerman. Ted, renamed Jed Moseley in the flick within the sitcom, is, by contrast, portrayed as a jerk by none other than… The Middle’s Chris Kattan.
