You guys, I will be so glad when Monday’s episode airs and I can stop treating every scrap of information about the episode like it’s a major spoiler. But since it hasn’t aired yet: Two batches of links! The first batch contains no Shelter Island spoilers.
Jamie-Lynn Sigler has signed on to play Jillian in 4.08. Spoiler level: Nothing new for those of you who read yesterday’s post, nothing major for those of you who didn’t. He just does the whole “Sigler will play Jillian, who is…” thing, and it’s a) not entirely correct, so far as I know, and b) not very spoilery at all.
This aired a few weeks ago, but TV Guide just put it on YouTube. No spoilers (this was filmed two months ago), and they basically threw every single behind-the-scenes clip they could find into this, going back to Season Two, but there are some great interviews with the cast, as well as Carter Bays, Craig Thomas, and Pam Fryman. Most notably, in the first video, Alyson Hannigan endorses The Hair.
And Josh Radnor kicks ass at HIMYM trivia, only to be stumped by the lyrics to Let’s Go to the Mall:
I’m FINALLY getting around to the individual cast/project pages – they’ll be accessible from the ‘cast’ tab at the top of the page. I’ve started out with Cobie and her movie The Slammin’ Salmon, which you can read about here, but keep an eye out for more – the section will be expanding all the time.
These are the areas in which the show, cast, or crew have been submitted for nomination – the actual nominations won’t be announced until July. Also, keep in mind that it’s up to the actors themselves whether they’d like to run as lead or supporting.
If something’s in italics, then I’m upwards of 90% certain that it’s true, but don’t have definite confirmation yet.

This is old news by now, but on Tuesday most of the cast [Jason was in LA filming I Love You, Man - expect a big post on that tomorrow!], along with Carter Bays [co-creator] and Pam Fryman [one of the show's executive producers and director of 60 of the show's 64 episodes], attended a special screening of “How I Met Everyone Else” for Emmy voters. The event took place at McGee’s, the Manhattan bar that Bays and Craig Thomas used as the inspiration for MacLaren’s, and was followed by a Q&A with the cast, as well as Bays and Fryman.
Alan Sepinwall, who moderated the Q&A, has posted a rundown of it here. [Thanks to Erin for the tip!] There’s a ton of great info there – no real spoilers for upcoming seasons, as they never get more specific than saying that they’re looking forward to doing something or what some of their goals for the show are.
Speaking of spoilers, though, they might be available sooner than you’d think – this article about exec producer Greg Malins’ new deal with Fox says that they’re going back to work this Friday, although with a SAG strike threatening, it could be a while before they get to film anything.
According to Televisionista, S4 is scheduled to premiere on September 22. TV.com backs them up, but I haven’t been able to find any official word – does anyone have the source?
