Catch up with Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and the gang to see what they’ve been up to since the sitcom first aired in 2005.
Radnor played Ted Mosby, an architect living in New York City with his best friends, Robin, Marshall, Lily, and Barney. Throughout the series, fans rooted for the show’s most relatable character, who remained determined to find true love in the big city.
Radnor played Mosby on screen, while Full House’s Bob Saget voiced Mosby as the show’s narrator.
After a nine-season run on the show, Radnor moved on to play Dr. Jedediah Foster on the TV drama Mercy Street and Lonny Flash on the mystery-crime series Hunters.
The actress played badass TV journalist and proud Canadian Robin Scherbatsky. Fun fact: Scherbatsky was once a child pop star who went by the name of Robin Sparkles, which totally blew her crew’s minds (and ours).
Smulders went on to kick more ass as Maria Hill in Avengers Endgame and joined another crew of friends as Lisa Turner in the TV series Friends from College.
