‘How I Met Your Mother’ 8×06 guest star revealed [updated]

Since season 8 of How I Met Your Mother is kicking off in just a few short weeks, more exciting tidbits are hitting the web!

SpoilerTV announced today that episode 8×05, “Pauses and Paws,” will guest star Karthik Srinivasan as the character of Giles.

UPDATE: SpoilerTV has revised their information, stating Srinivasan will actually appear on episode 8×06, which will be titled “Spiltsville.”  Additionally, John Paul Green will be playing the part of Joel on this episode as well.

Other than the title and now the fact that Srinivasan and Green will guest star, we don’t have any more plot details about episode 8×06. Who do you think the characters of Giles and Joel will be? If the gang gets a dog (speculation from the episode title), could one of them be a vet? Maybe a breeder? Or will they be someone random the gang meets in MacLaren’s? A babysitter for Lily and Marshall?

Yesterday, we learned the description of 8×02, “The Pre-nup,” and the exciting 8×01 promo was also recently released. In the promo, we learn that Quinn didn’t know Robin and Barney used to date! Also exciting, David Burtka announced via Twitter that he will return to How I Met Your Mother in season 8! Burtka plays Lily’s high school boyfriend, Scooter, who has a recurring role in flashbacks, and also made an appearance at Lily and Marshall’s wedding.

Season 8 will premiere on Monday, September 24 at 8 p.m. Leave us your thoughts below about who you think the character of Giles will be!
