Martin ShortMartin Short is returning to his comedy roots with a recurring role on 'How I Met Your Mother' this fall. Something tells us he's definitely not the mother.

Vulture reports that Short will fill in for Dave Foley as Marshall's new boss; Foley's new series 'How to Be a Gentleman' (also on CBS) prevents him from continuing his role.

Short got his drama fill on 'Damages' last season, and can next be seen on this season of 'Weeds,' which premiered last night.

Martin Short is horrible and As long as his role is small the show will survive.

Yuck. I don't find Martin Short funny. His overacting ruins every scene he is in.
