Ashley Benson is taking a short detour from Rosewood to guest star on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother! TVLine is reporting that the Pretty Little Liars actress will guest star on the sitcom’s January 21 episode as a potential gal pal for Barney (Neil Patrick Harris). However, some are saying that she’ll be somewhat of an “unconventional love interest,” and considering there’s a 17-year age difference between the two, that certainly would be a bit unconventional!
This fun guest spot is just another acting gig to add to Ashley’s already heavy work load! In addition to PLL coming back to ABC Family on January 8, she’ll also be busy promoting Spring Breakers, which also stars Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and her rumored BF James Franco, which hits theaters on March 5, 2013.
And from what we’ve seen from PLL sneak peeks, things are only getting crazier in Rosewood! One of the latest clips we’ve seen includes the liars getting in a little tiff while discussing the fact that Garrett saw Aria’s Dad talking to Ali the night she died! As much as we love PLL, we’re sure Ashley will be happy to take a short break from the madness of “A”!
