How I met your Reege

Regis PhilbinLook, I don't know what it is, but I'm kind of obsessed with Regis Philbin. Maybe it's the way his hair doesn't look like it's moved since 1956, or the way he doesn't even bother to hide the fact that he has no idea who half the people are who he interviews. The point is, I get really excited any time I come across some Regis news, so I'm totally psyched that he's set to guest star on How I Met Your Mother.

Philbin is going to play himself on the sitcom's second episode of the season. Apparently the gang runs into him at Marshall's favorite NYC burger joint.

While having Regis Philbin on the show may not earn them quite the record-breaking ratings that Britney Spears did, it does offer a distinct advantage: The possibility of one of Neil Patrick Harris' famous Regis impressions. Harris, who has filled in for Philbin on Live With Regis and Kelly on several occasions, is known for doing one of the best "Reeges" out there, and that, to me, beats staring at Britney's extensions any day.
