Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan

Alyson Hannigan taught Jason Segel "how to be a man."

The How I Met Your Mother actor, who reportedly checked into rehab following his split from Michelle Williams last February, admitted he is really going to miss his co-star when the show finishes up in March after nine seasons. "Aly taught me a lot about how to be a man, I gotta say. I was 25 when I took the show. I think we've all been through a lot personally. Aly and I have a lot of scenes together, spend a lot of time together, and she's always been there to listen to me and give me advice. [She] saw me through hard times and good times... I learned a lot from being around Alyson about the kind of person that I wanted to be."

Seth GreenBuffy fans, rejoice! Oz Seth Green Will soon reunite with Willow Alyson Hannigan as a guest star on How I Met Your Mother.

Green will appear on the sitcom as Daryl LaCoutre, a man who considers Lily (Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) two of his best friends from college. Twelve years later, the pair run into him, but they have no clue who he is. LaCoutre apparently goes into stalker-sounding territory, as he is “creepily obsessed with having them [Lily and Marshall] in his life.”

The episode is tentatively schedule to air on CBS on December 10.

Until then, True Blood fans will want to tune into the show on November 12, when Joe Manganiello is set to begin his two episode arc on the hit series.

Neil Patrick Harris Wants HIMYM to End

Neil Patrick Harris in 'How I Met Your Mother'Neil Patrick Harris wants How I Met Your Mother to end after the current season.

The comedy returns this month for its eighth season and Neil - who plays Barney Stinson - says he and the rest of the cast are ready for the show to reach its conclusion.

"Our contracts end at [Season] eight, so it's one of those, you know, if they wanna do nine, they're welcome to, but we have a lot of other things [going on]. Cobie has got The Avengers that just made a billion dollars, Jason makes a ton of movies, I'm anxious to move East and Josh is directing and acting in movies as well. So, we all are anxious to move forward," said Neil, who stars alongside Cobie Smulders, Jason Segel, Josh Radnor and Alyson Hannigan.

Neil also admits the only reason any of the cast will sign up for another series is if it will be incredibly lucrative for them to do so: "I think the only way I think a season nine or any longer would happen would be [if it were] financially right - that's the reality of it. We love the show, we love doing it - eight years is a long time and we're as happy a family as we've ever been."
