Conan O'Brien

Fame Pictues

Turns out, when you're an impressively tall, redheaded celeb, it's not so easy to blend into the crowd.

In case ya missed it, Conan O'Brien made good on his promise to Neil Patrick Harris (from June) that he would appear on CBS' How I Met Your Mother as an "extra in the bar."

So where was Waldo Conan? And will he be back?

See Conan's cameo toward the end of this video...




In last night's episode of HIMYM, Conan appeared in the background at MacLaren's, the local hangout for Ted, Robin, Barney, Marshall and Lily. Barney (Harris) darted past the funnyman on his way out, and Conan gave a quick turn toward the camera revealing his face. Though, really, anyone who's seen the foxy (we can call him that, right?) talk-show host probably figured out it was Conan before the turn...Right?

A show source tells us the Conan guest spot had been in the works for months, and extras were asked not to leak the info (particularly challenging to control given the number of extras in this scene). There are no plans for Conan to return, but producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are open to the idea, and thrilled Conan made good on his promise to do a cameo.

So, HIMYM fans, who takes the cake now as the best celebrity guest star of all time: Conan? Britney Spears? Katie Holmes? Katy Perry? Jennifer Lopez? We know, we know what you're thinking: Spencer and Heidi!
