American actress who first achieved fame for her role as Joey Potter in " Dawson's Creek" (1998-2003) Katie Holmes Will Star as a guest star on ‘How I Met Your Mother.’ Over the years, "How I Met Your Mother" has been very fortunate in attracting seasoned actors to guest-star as love interests for Ted (Josh Radnor) — ladies like Rachel Bilson, Sarah Chalke, Jennifer Morrison, and Laura Prepon. Holmes, likewise, makes her debut on "How I Met Your Mother" on Halloween night as Naomi the "slutty pumpkin."

The actor has been invited to appear on the show's Halloween episode next month, in a role that, on a family site, I will paraphrase as "The Pumpkin of Loose Morals." The 32-year-old Holmes was last seen on TV playing First Lady Jackie Kennedy in the Reelz miniseries "The Kennedys"; she's also currently in theatres in the feature "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark."
Craig Thomas, one of the creators of the show, said: “Katie is a lovely and talented actress, which is why we’ve saved for her perhaps the most classily named character in our show’s history.”
