Dream big, Alyson Hannigan!
That's what we always say!
The former Buffy actress is about to do her last season as Lily on How I Met Your Mother. But even after the maternal mystery is FINALLY solved, Alyson doesn't want the sitcom to end!
She's pitching a HIMYM spin-off starring her and Jason Segel!
Alyson has been trying to get her onscreen sweetheart to sign on for the new series, but he's making quite the demand! She explained:
”I’m trying to convince [Jason] to do the spin-off. He said he’ll do it if it’s called, Out By Lunch and we can get out by lunch everyday and we only work a couple days a week. I’m like, ‘I’m in.’ We can do it! We work really quickly together.”
After nine seasons together as the most mushy married couple on TV, we're not surprised to hear they work well together.
Get Neil Patrick Harris onboard and we'll FO SHO tune in!
Even if CBS passes on a Lily and Marshall spin-off, Alyson is hoping her phone rings with another new acting gig!
After Buffy the Vampire Slayer was canceled in 2003, Hannigan got a call from J.J. Abrams asking her to be in a TV pilot he was creating. She decided to turn down the gig because she had her heart set on a comedy.
Wait a second…
Did Alyson Hannigan turn down a spot on LOST?!?
She's pretty sure that wasn't the series he wanted her for.
But now that she once again needs a new job, she has her fingers crossed that he considers her for a role in the next Star Wars movie! Alyson spoke directly to the legend-wait for it-dary director, saying:
"I’m available for Star Wars! Just so you know!”
A redhead Princess Leia???
We can see it!
