White promoting the DVD release of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Cobie was asked by to Digital Spy about the potential spinoff series, How I Met Your Dad:
“I don’t know much about it. It’s so funny, over the holidays I was hanging out with Carter and Craig, and they didn’t seem to know much about it either.
“I don’t know what the intention is with it, but it makes me happy that people still want to hear that story. I think the way our show was shot, with the narration and the flashbacks, it enabled a lot of freedom in storytelling, and luckily audiences really liked that and I think that’s what they’re trying to recreate.
“I don’t have anything to do with it, I don’t think anyone on our cast does. I remember when they tried to do the other spinoff, there was no conversation about any of us participating. I think it’ll be its own thing, but the way it is shot will be quite similar.”
Taran Killam may be famous for his snarky impressions of Matthew McConaughey and Brad Pitt on Saturday Night Live, but he is now busy taking on his biggest real-life persona: King George III in the hit Broadway musical Hamilton. While speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Taran spoke about supporting Cobie and her upcoming Broadway debut in, Present Laughter:
Your wife [Cobie Smulders] is about to make her Broadway debut in Present Laughter. How have you been supporting each other before taking the stage?
We have a family, so the real support comes in being there for each other to study, memorize and train. My wife moved out here after How I Met Your Mother, and her only creative goal was to do a Broadway show. I am unbelievably excited for her and proud. I can’t wait to see her on the stage with Kevin Klein — it’s going to be really cool.
Are you going to take a day off to go see her?
I am. We overlap for a little bit and then I will be free in time for her opening.
Cobie is heading to Broadway! Cobie will star in the upcoming production of Noël Coward’s Present Laughter which officially opens on April 5th! The production also features Kevin Kline, Tedra Millan, Joanna Lyppiatt, Kristine Nielsen and Kate Burton. Check out the synopsis below:
A self-obsessed actor (is there any other kind?) is having a midlife crisis. This leading man gets led astray by indulging his appetite for wine, women, and sleeping late, not necessarily in that order. A theater favorite, he finds himself caught amid crazed playwrights (is there any other kind?), fawning ingenues, secret trysts, and unexpected twists.
Who better to star in this Noël Coward comedy than real-life theater favorite Kevin Kline? Kline, a Tony- and Academy Award winner, takes on the role once filled by the playwright himself. Under the direction of Moritz von Stuelpnagel, this revival of Present Laughter promises to deliver on its title.

Unstoppable Entertainment have announced that Cobie Smulders and Jessica Hynes are leading the cast of the new British comedy Songbird, which has just commenced principal photography.
Written and directed by Jamie Adams, the film also stars Noel Clarke, Ian Smith, Laura Patch, Holli Dempsey and Emily Atack. The official synopsis reads:
Joanne Sykes is lead singer of once popular 90’s indie rock band The Filthy Dukes. They’ve been on the road since 1996, slowly but surely managing to play 150-capped venues. We find the Dukes at their last ever gig, and as the band falls apart so does Joanne; she’s finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her with just about everyone, and there’s little left for her once the group disband. So, thinking about the next step, she drunkenly applies for university. University isn’t quite what Joanne expected – far less wild partying, and a lot more yoga and kale. Whilst there, she falls in love with a librarian called Pete. It’s far from smooth sailing, but will going back to university be the new start she needs; who knows, maybe she’ll re-discover her love for music.
The latest Netflix series began streaming all 8 episodes of A Series of Unfortunate Events on January 13th — Friday the 13th to be exact. The series stars Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf and Patrick Warburton as Lemony Snicket.
Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” can be a rather complicated show to explain succinctly, but the new Netflix original series is clear about one point at the onset and throughout: You shouldn’t watch it.
Each episode opens with Neil Patrick Harris begging audiences to avert their eyes (via an opening song, aptly titled “Look Away”). Patrick Warburton then cautions, directly to camera, “If you are interested in stories with happy endings, then you’d be better off somewhere else.” Even the musical number closing Season 1 circles around the line, “You might dream that justice and peace win the day, but that’s not how this story goes.”
The new series has received mostly positive reviews from critics and audiences alike.
Viewers were surprised to see two unannounced actors make an appearance — Will Arnett and Cobie Smulders were featured in a special appearance as ‘Mother’ and ‘Father.’
A Series of Unfortunate Events is now streaming on Netflix.
