6 degrees of HIMYM cast!

Welcome to our newest thread!
This week we'll play the game of finding as many connections between the cast as we can!

1. Found by Mel (who thought about this thread in first place so everybody say thank you )

Aly and Jason were both in Dead Man on Campus

If anybody have pics please share!

2. Neil and Lindsay Price (aka Ted's gf who wouldn't shut up ) were both in Purple People Eater




Those crack me up too much not to post them

Your turn people! These can be obvious choices or far more complicated (X cast member was in a movie with Y actor who is actually friends with Z cast member, etc.).

You're welcome. I think this will be a fun thread.

Those caps are adorable! They're so young.

I'll see what else I can think of tomorrow.

Obvious one first! Aly was in Buffy with Tom Lenk (Brian/Scott from the Coffee House in Swarley) and Angel with both her husband Alexis Denisof (Sandy Rivers) and Amy Acker (Penelope in Come On).

Neil is in Doctor Horrible's Singalong Blog with Nathan Fillion who was in Firefly with Morena Baccarin (Chloe from Swarley)

Jason wrote/directed/starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall with Kristen Bell who is in Heroes with Cristine Rose (Mama Mosby). Another Cristine Rose link - Josh appeared in the LA production of I Sing! the musical with Jenna Leigh Green, who was in Sabrina the Teenage Witch - Cristine Rose played her mum.

Anne Dudek (Natalie from the Return of the Shirt) was in Bones with David Boreanaz, who was in Buffy/Angel with Alyson.

There are a lot of good links! I have more but I'm at work. Hee!

*slopes off*

Totally didn't know that one.

There are few more Anne Dudek connections:
She guest starred on L&O: Criminal Intent and on Numb3rs, just like Neil.
She guest starred on Friends just like Teri Garr who played Neil's mother in Stranger in the Family and like Paul Rudd who was in Knocked up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and I Love You, Man with Jason. (I'm pretty sure there are more Friends connections, considering the crazy amount of guest stars that show had)
She was on Mad Men with Vincent Kartheiser who was on Angel with Aly, Alexis and Amy. Because everything goes back to Jossverse, obviously

Also Cristine Rose played mother of Paul Rudd's character on Friends.

And both Neil and Aly guest starred on Touched by an Angel.

I keep stopping by and reading everything but just haven't had any time to post! I'm not doing anything tonight though so I'll really try and catch up!

Another Anne Dudek connection though not exactly six degrees as it doesn't involve any other people, but when she appeared in Friends she played a character (Paul Rudd's girlfriend) who was getting - wait for it - dumped on her birthday!

Another link via Nathan Fillion - Lyndsy Fonseca (Future Daughter) played his daughter on Desperate Housewives and he was in Firefly with Morena Baccarin (Chloe).

Joe Manganiello (Brad) was in Scrubs which stars Sarah Chalke (Stella). He was also in ER with JP Manoux (Not Moby) and Busy Philipps (Rachel in Third Wheel).

Here's a long one for you: Sarah Chalke is in Scrubs with Zach Braff, who was in The Broken Hearts Club with Dean Cain, who was in The New Adventures of Superman in which K Callan (Lily's Grandma Lois) played his mum.

Sarah Chalke is in Scrubs with Zach Braff who used to date Mandy Moore (Amy in Where Were We) and Mandy also guest starred in Scrubs.

Ashley Williams (Victoria) was in an episode of Dawson's Creek with Busy Philipps (Rachel in Third Wheel) and James Van Der Beek (Simon in Sandcastles in the Sand).

James Van Der Beek was in Dawson's Creek with a number of people who shared screen time with Aly in Buffy - Adam Kaufman, Jason Behr, Bianca Lawson...

Danica McKellar (Trudy) was in The Year That Trembled with Meredith Monroe (who starred in Dawson's Creek with JVDB) and Jonathan Woodward (who was in Buffy with Alyson Hannigan and Firefly with Morena Baccarin).

Ooooh these are good finds!

Jason was on Freaks and Geeks with John Francis Daley who's on Bones with David Boreanaz who was on Buffy/Angel with Aly, Alexis and Amy. Honestly, the Buffyverse connections are too easy to find

Cobie was on Special Unit 2 with Michael Landes who was on The Wonder Years with Danica McKellar (Trudy). She was also on Jeremiah with Luke Perry who did stage work with Aly and who was on BH90210 with Lindsay Price.

Neil did Animal Room with Matthew Lillard who was in Scooby-Doo with SMG (obligatory Buffy connection ) and with Linda Cardellini who was on Freaks and Geeks with Jason.

This is fun! *loves imdb*

I just remembered one I forgot thanks to your Freaks & Geeks refs! Samm Devine has just finished shooting an indie movie called "Drones" starring Jonathan Woodward, and directed by Amber Benson and Adam Busch. Take your pick of the Buffy references to connect it back to HIMYM!

There should be a separate thread for Buffy connections

More:

Marshall Manesh (Ranjit) guest starred on Scrubs with Sarah Chalke. He also appeared with Charlene Amoia (Wendy the waitress) on Joey.

K Callan (Lily's grandma) guest starred on The Division with Rebecca Gayheart who was in The Christmas Blessing with Neil.

Michael Gross (Ted's father) played Neil's stepfather in Snowbound.

Longer one: Jason was in Can't Hardly Wait! with Lauren Ambrose who was in Diggers with Ken Marino who was on Veronica Mars (and Angel) with Aly and on Dawson's Creek with Busy Phillips.

I'm skipping Buffyverse for a moment, because apparently there's more:

Lyndsy Fonseca (Ted's daughter) was in I Do, They Don't with Wayne Brady (Barney's brother).
Joe Nieves (Carl) just finished a movie called Float with Cristine Rose (Ted's mother).
April Bowlby (Meg - one of Barney's top 5 from The Bracket) is currently filming The Slammin' Salmon with Cobie.

To be honest I didn't think there'd be that many connections
