World news – « Big regret »: huge TV roll star rejected


Children, this is the story of how Jason turned down Biggs, how I met your mother.

The 42-year-old actor admitted that he had turned down an offer to play Ted Mosby on the hugely popular sitcom, which ran from 2005 to 2014. Instead, Josh Radnor played the lead role.

« I was offered the role, yes, » the American Pie star confirmed when appearing on SiriusXM’s The Covino & Rich Show.

« I was offered the role and it’s probably my biggest regret, you know, when I died. I think I was in a phase at the time – it sounds so disgusting to say it now – but it was at the time it’s like, ‘OK, do I want to watch TV?’ I don’t know that I was ready to go that route.  »

He noted that he was still making films at the time and was enjoying « just a few months working on an appearance » and taking time off.

« I passed it on and then, you know, two things happened very soon after, » he quipped. « One, this show was blown up. We all know what happened to this show. And second, I was like, ‘I want to do TV!' »

While joking that it took him another four years to see him on a TV show – orange is the new black – he stated, « Big picture, I don’t regret it. Right? I’m very happy, very happy. I’m still here. This is number one. Great. But yeah, if I had to single out something that I wish I had done differently, I would certainly have taken this gig. Absolutely.  »

When asked if his American Pie co-star Alyson Hannigan, who played Ted’s friend Lily Aldrin on How I Met Your Mother, had ever bothered him, he said, « We never really talked about it. I don’t know. » I don’t know that she actually knows.  »
