Paget Brewster to Visitor Star as Sophie’s Mom

Whereas you’ll have gotten used to see Paget Brewster as Emily Prentiss for many of the 15-season run of Criminal Minds, a few of her different credit — Friends, Another Period — have her exhibiting off her comedic abilities, so we’re fairly excited to see what she does on How I Met Your Father.

Brewster will visitor star within the February 8 episode of Hulu’s comedy as Sophie’s (Hilary Duff) mom, TVLine reviews. Lori is a former mannequin whose “sudden go to from Sophie’s mom heightens Valentina’s concern for her greatest good friend.” We’ll have to attend and see what precisely has led to that go to. Proper now, it’s a one-episode look, although we wouldn’t be stunned if she returns if the comedy is picked up for a second season.

We now have heard a bit about Lori already, within the sequence premiere and third episode, by conversations involving Sophie, her greatest good friend Valentina (Francia Raisa), and “Father” candidate Jesse (Chris Lowell). First, Jesse had assumed that resulting from Sophie’s “Brooklyn Bridge soulmate” speech — she waited so lengthy to stroll throughout it, she was ready to take action with hers — that she was “a type of individuals whose dad and mom really stayed married,” due to this fact “in the event that they discovered one another, there should be somebody on the market for everybody.” All she’d stated on the time was “one thing like that.”

It was Valentina who provided a extra sincere image of Sophie’s dad and mom. Her “mother is a celebration lady who bounces round from boyfriend to boyfriend,” she revealed. “Her dad wasn’t even within the image. The one factor magical about Sophie’s life is that she nonetheless believes in love in any respect.”

Then two episodes later, Sophie herself admitted Jesse was “manner off” about her dad and mom. “My childhood was form of a multitude. It was simply my mother and I, bouncing round from one boyfriend’s home to the subsequent. We had been extra like sisters than mom and daughter, and I used to be the massive sister, all the time choosing up the items after each breakup, and I acquired actually good at fixing her,” she shared. That led to who she is at present: a fixer, “particularly after I can’t work out how to sort things for myself … like discover my particular person. I wish to so unhealthy and it simply retains not taking place.”

How I Met Your Father ended its most up-to-date episode with Sophie and Drew (Josh Peck) nonetheless collectively, which means there might be likelihood that Lori meets him — and due to this fact we get a Grandfathered reunion onscreen. (Brewster performed Peck’s character’s mom on the Fox comedy.) It must be fascinating to see what Lori has to say about her daughter’s love life and what she thinks of her new good friend group.
