Martin Short Joins How I Met Your Mother

One of the highlights of last month's How I Met Your Mother season finale was a guest turn by Kids in the Hall alum Dave Foley as Marshall's potential new boss at an environmental law firm. Producers loved Foley's character so much, in fact, that they had hoped to have him back next season (guess this means Marshall got the job). Alas, Foley's sitcom pilot How to Be a Gentleman was picked up by CBS, making him unavailable for next season. But Vulture hears that the HIMYM producers have opted to deal with the loss of one major Canadian comedy talent by signing an (arguably) even bigger Canadian comic, from an equally beloved sketch-comedy show: Martin Short.

This is good. Martin Short is good for any show. He is so funny he's bound to bring good ratings to it.
