Google It: Special Edition

Since a good number of people are Googling the song at the end of the episode and getting sent here, it’s “Waiting for an Invitation” by Benji Hughes. Lyrics here.

[While I'm here: That Bertolli's ad was a disgrace. Not as bad as the Aerie ads the CW used to run on Tuesdays, but still: Pretty bad.]

News Roundup

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.
  • Greg Malins is making a pilot for ABC.
  • Jason Segel will be on Live with Regis and Kelly on October 27. [Thanks to Shermie for the tip.]
  • Sarah Chalke will be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on October 22.
  • A self-employed prestidigitator [look it up] named Neil Harris contributed to No on 8. [Proposition 8 would undo California's legalization of gay marriage.]
  • Auction! A TiVo HD, signed by Neil Patrick Harris [and some other celebrities from Stand Up To Cancer, which is what the auction is for]. It comes with a year’s subscription to TiVo.
  • Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof get stalked by paparazzi in Santa Monica.
  • TV Week interviewed the co-chairs of Twentieth Century Fox [the studio that produces HIMYM] – mostly industry stuff, with a few mentions of the show and how the studio feels about it.

And everything in the second batch contains some degree of spoiler for the episode:

Clip from 405: Shelter Island

Is there anyone left who doesn’t know the basic premise of this episode? If you don’t: It is pretty spoilery.

Clip from 404, Another BuddyTV Interview

A two-minute clip from tonight’s episode:

And BuddyTV interviews Josh Radnor and Sarah Chalke – once again, if you don’t already know what 405 is about, the spoilers are pretty big.

Promo Photos for 405 – Shelter Island

I don’t know what the deal is with 404 stills – at this point it looks like they aren’t coming. As for these photos, if you don’t already know what 405 is about, the spoilers are huge. It’s nothing you wouldn’t see coming past the first five minutes of the episode, but you’ve been warned.

TV Guide Interviews Josh, 402 Promo

Spoilers for 405, of the “where are Ted and Stella headed” variety. Also, here’s a promo for 402 with very little in the way of new footage:

405 Casting: Sara Paxton is out, Danneel Harris is in.

That’s really all there is to it! You might remember Danneel Harris from One Tree Hill, which…I don’t know, last time I saw it she was on cocaine or something, and the guy who played Marshall’s accidental-boyfriend Brad beat up her drug dealer. Fascinating!

According to Ausiello, they’re hoping to find another role for Sara Paxton.
