Katie Holmes cast as Slutty Pumpkin on “How I Met Your Mother”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: While her “Dawson’s Creek” co-star Michelle Williams earns Oscar nominations and indie cred, Katie Holmes appears content to work infrequently and spend time with her world-famous husband (Tom Cruise) and their daughter.
But a role on a hit sitcom has lured Holmes back to the small screen.
The actress, most recently spotted in the late summer horror pic “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” is joining the cast of CBS’ hit show “How I Met Your Mother,” according to Vulture. She has been cast as Slutty Pumpkin, the girl who Ted (Josh Radnor) met at a Halloween party before losing touch. She is the proverbial “one that got away” in the show’s lore, and could go a long way toward tying up the sitcom’s big-time loose ends.
“Katie is a lovely and talented actress, which is why we’ve saved for her perhaps the most classily named character in our show’s history,” said “HIMYM” co-creator Craig Thomas, calling Holmes’ casting in the pivotal role “literally six seasons in the making.”
Holmes next appears in Adam Sandler’s “Jack and Jill,” out in November.

Neil Patrick Harris TV renewal and movie opening news

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: It’s a big week for Neil Patrick Harris who found out he will be playing the hilarious Barney Stinson on CBS’s ‘How I Met Your Mother’ for at least two more years.
Deadline Hollywood reports that the cast – NPH, Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, and Alyson Hannigan – are all set to return.
We all know that the supremely talented Neil, who is the father of baby twins with partner David Burtka, could have his pick of things to do in television, movies or stage if he wasn’t on the sitcom. He’s also hosted the Emmys and the Tonys – imagine what life he could have brought to this year’s dreadful Oscar ceremony!
Speaking of films, Neil got some good notices for the poorly-reviewed film ‘Beastly’ starring newcomer Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens. USA Today wrote that “the movie’s saving grace is Neil Patrick Harris as Will, Kyle’s wisecracking, blind tutor, who appears at Kyle’s house one day to school the self-centered guy on being decent, with a capital D.”
The film opened in third place over the weekend earning an estimated $10 million. It finished behind the animated flick ‘Rango’ featuring the voice of Johnny Depp and the new Matt Damon thriller ‘Adjustment Bureau.’

Have Mercy: Sonny Corleone’s Kid Makes Good

By Roger Friedman
Sonny Corleone’s kid has finally done it: Scott Caan, son of “Godfather” actor James Caan, has made his own movie. And it’s pretty good.
Caan wrote and produced “Mercy,” which closed the GenArt Film Festival last night. IFC will release the film on April 28th, directed by Patrick Hoelke.Troy Garity, Erika Christensen and Wendy Glenn co-star.
What’s interesting about “Mercy” is that it’s a romantic comedy (with a little melodrama) told from the male perspective. Maybe this is a trend. Josh Radnor’s film “happythankyoumoreplease,” which was at Sundance this year, is similar.
“Mercy” is very romantic, and Caan–who couldn’t get released from shooting “Entourage” in L.A. to be at last night’s premiere–makes for a sympathetic hero. It doesn’t hurt that halfway through he adds his dad to the mix. When James Caan appears on the screen, the movie ticks upward immediately. You want to see what he’s going to do about all this mushy love stuff.
