Martin Short joins Conan O’Brien on Serious Jibber-Jabber

SNL' Promo: Martin Short

Our show insiders confirm that the SCTV alum will join the HIMYM cast next fall in a recurring, multi-episode role as Marshall’s new boss. It’s the first extended comedy role Short has tackled for American TV since his 2001 to 2003 Comedy Central series Primetime Glick; he did a dramatic turn on the last season of Damages.

Short takes the place of Dave Foley (who played a potential boss of Marshall’s in the finale but had another series as priority). No word on whether he’ll play the same character or a brand new one.

Martin Short as you’ve never seen him before - probably - as attorney Leonard Winstone in the TV drama Damages.

I love when comedians go dramatic (most recently - see Patton Oswalt in Big Fan.) This should be good, I bet he has great dramatic depth.
