Laura Bell Bundy has landed a recurring role on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother. According to TV Guide and BroadwayWorld.com, Bundy will be playing the co-host of Metro News One with Robin (Cobie Smulders) and will go on a date with Ted (Josh Radnor), putting her in contention to be the title mother. (SPOILER ALERT: Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello has already shot down that idea, though he describes LBB’s role as “pivotal.”)
Bundy is primarily out promoting her major label debut country album, Achin’ and Shakin’, though she’s also popped up on TV shows such as the season finale of Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-List and Broadway continues to call for the Tony Award-nominated star of Leagally Blonde – The Musical.
Last weekend, Bundy was in Lexington seeing her cousin, Addyson Bell, play Brigitta in Paragon Music Theatre’s production of The Sound of Music. She will be back in town this fall for a concert Oct. 1 and as part of a Broadway showcase Oct. 4 in the Spotlight Lexington Festival during the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.
