Rachel Bilson will guest star as a
lesbian on CBS' comedy hit How I Met Your Mother.
entertainment website AfterEllen.com is reporting that Bilson
will appear in the September 20 season premiere of the show.
In the episode, twenty-nine-year-old
Bilson (The O.C., Jumper) plays Cindy, a girl that Ted (played
by Josh Radnor) runs into at a bar. Ted recalls having a disastrous
date with Cindy, which ends with her kicking him out of her
apartment. After the date, Cindy is rude to Ted, and mocks him in
the hallway at school.
But in their chance meeting, Cindy is
nice to Ted. She apologizes for her behavior and gives him credit
for altering her life.
“I won't ruin the whole episode for
you,” the author writes, “but I will tell you that you will see
Bilson kiss a woman,” then teases with, “but the bonus is it also
stars Alyson Hannigan.”
Emmy-nominated How I Met Your Mother stars
Neil Patrick Harris as heterosexual sex hound Barney.
