Six seasons later, the Slutty Pumpkin of Ted’s dreams on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother has been unmasked, it is none other then Mrs. Tom Cruise herself: Katie Holmes, reports NY Magazine.
On the show’s second season, Ted Moseby rifles through potential love interests like a trigger happy Romeo. One of the ladies was a seemingly fictional Slutty Pumpkin that Ted had met at a roof top Halloween party, but then lost touch with. Could this possibly be the long-awaited Mother? Unlikely, as he has been constantly referring to her as “Slutty” to his children.
Craig Thomas, the show’s co-creator, is psyched: “Katie is a lovely and talented actress, which is why we’ve saved for her perhaps the most classly named character in our show’s history,” he says, adding that the role was “literally six seasons in the making.”
Holmes has an interesting career spanning from Batman’s lover to First Lady Jackie Kennedy, from Dawson’s Creek to Adam Sandler’s wife.
This is going to be legendary.
