Neil Patrick Harris' womanizing character on How I Met Your Mother has hooked up with countless women, but there's one special lady the player hasn't gotten his hands on just yet.

So who is Barney Stinson's dream conquest? And will it actually happen?

"I think Barney should hook up with Betty White at some point," Harris told us last night at the opening of the Art L.A. exhibit benefiting the Museum of Contemporary Art. "That's my big pitch. We'll see if it happens."

Yes, that Betty White—the 87-year-old former Golden Girls star!

And while a rep for the show says there have not been any discussions just yet, they are open to the possibility. "I'm sure it'd be fun. I've worked with Betty before, and she's great!"

White's team is open to it, too. "Have someone make me an offer," White's agent, Jeff Witjas, tells us. "I do hope, though, that Barney is really up to dating Betty. She will run him ragged."

Harris isn't the only one who's after White these days. She's has just been cast to guest appear on NBC's My Name Is Earl. White is only signed on for "one episode at this time," Witjas tells us. "Betty plays the crazy witch lady."

So we just gotta ask: Who's the best match for this AARP-eligible cougar: Barney or Earl?!
