Is Katy Perry Ted's Latest Love Interest on 'How I Met Your Mother'?

Katy PerryAn attractive young lady has been cast on 'How I Met Your Mother,' so the speculation can now begin: Is she the mother?

Continuing in the storied tradition of pop star cameos on the CBS comedy, Katy Perry has signed on to guest star in an episode later this season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, she'll play the cousin of Jennifer Morrison's character, Zooey, "a beautiful, naive girl whom the gang resorts to calling 'honey'."

Like Britney Spears and Mandy Moore before her, Perry will play a potential love interest for Ted -- but unless she's about to retire from singing, we don't see things working out.

"Katy is a tremendous talent and we are delighted to be able to work with her," creator Carter Bays told THR.

Perry's acting resume -- currently limited to a 'Saturday Night Live' skit -- will expand greatly this year when she makes her film debut as the voice of Smurfette in the live-action 'Smurfs' movie.

She was also on The Simpsons where she acted poorly. Halloween special, with the Simpsonized muppets as Moe's girlfriend. Her cues were off by at least a second, like you were watching a jr high play.
