Katie Holmes To Play 'Slutty Pumpkin' on 'How I Met Your Mother': [ send to a friend ]
'How I Met Your Mother' has finally found its Slutty Pumpkin.
The 32-year-old former 'Dawson's Creek' star will play the woman mentioned in the series' first season who Ted once met at a Halloween party but later lost touch with.
She became to be called the Slutty Pumpkin because she was dressed as a pumpkin with strategically placed holes. After Lily accidentally threw away her phone number, Ted went to the same party, in the same costume for years, hoping to meet her again but never did.
"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," jokes co-creator Craig Thomas with New York Magazine.
Holmes' last TV role was a guest turn on ABC's 'Eli Stone' back in 2008. The CBS comedy has also featured guest spots by Britney Spears [photos], Sarah Chalke, Jennifer Lopez [photos], and Rachel Bilson [photos].
