Cobie Smulders took the expression, "break a leg," a little too literally!
E! News confirms that the How I Met Your Mother alum has broken her leg and needed to pull out of HBO's highly anticipated Anita Hill movie. Starring Kerry Washington, Grace Gummer and Dylan Baker, Confirmation will have to find a new actress to replace Smulders. She was set to begin filming either this week or last.
The biopic follows the story of Hill, the attorney who sued Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas for sexual harassment in 1991. Hill was one of Thomas' aides at the Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Upon suing him she was called upon to testify against him during the hearings.
