The actress will be playing the "Slutty Pumpkin" on the Halloween episode of the CBS sitcom, according to Vulture.

The Jack-O-Lantern is a character that was mentioned from the show's beginnings as a potential love interest for Ted.

"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," HIMYM co-creator Craig Thomas said about the character that has been "literally six seasons in the making."
