Series star Josh Radnor (Ted Mosby) recently confirmed to Give Me My Remote that the Human Target star will appear in a forthcoming episode.
"He's the foreman on the building [that Ted is working on]," explained Radnor. "He's in charge of the construction, and I'm a rookie architect, to say the least."
He continued: "[Chi's character] calls me 'hotshot' and I say 'I'm sure that's an affectionate nickname, but I prefer Ted.' He refuses to [use that name]."
Radnor added that McBride is "really funny" in the role, though admitted that he is unsure if the actor will make a return appearance.
"I don't know if he'll be back, but it'd be great if [that happened]," he said.
McBride currently stars as Winston on Fox's Human Target and previously played a recurring role in the first season of House. He has also appeared in episodes of Psych, Monk and Boston Public.
How I Met Your Mother, which was recently renewed for two more seasons, currently airs on Mondays at 8/7c on CBS.
