Exclusive: 'Sopranos' Star Hits 'Mother' Lode


Speculating about Sarah Chalke being How I Met Your Mother‘s mysterious matriarch is so five minutes ago. The debate that’s raging among HIMYM disciples now is whether or not Ted’s future baby mama is Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

Or at least it will be once they’re done reading this story.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Mother execs have tapped Sigler to guest star as Jillian, an old friend of Lily’s and a notorious party girl. The Sopranos vet will appear in just one episode, the airdate of which is TBD.

Translation: Sigler’s got to be Mother‘s mother, right? I mean, she’s female. She’s the right age. She’s a woman. Did I mention she’s also the right age?

It’s either that or I played the “M” card simply to generate added interest in this casting item.

Which is it? You decide!

    Dude, she’s the mother.

    The kids have dark hair and Sarah Chalke is a blonde, so Jamie-Lynn Sigler does have dark hair and could possibly be the mother. I just think they could have picked a really good one to be the mother instead of Jamie-Lynn.

  • Britt

    If she only appears in one episode, there’s no way she’s the mother.

    ha, when i saw the picture i thought she would be cast as the sister! they could play bro/sis!

  • Luisa

    Eh. The mother? She does seem more like his sister, you’re right.
    I still think it’s too early for the mother. But Sarah Chalke is kinda engaged to Ted?..

  • CandyMaize

    I think she’s probably NOT the mother. But good try Ausiello! :-) I’m sure it’ll be another great ep of HIMYM though!

    I prefer not to speculate. There’s really no point.. Just enjoy the show and trust that we’ll get there… It’s about the journey anyway.. That said, Stella is NOT the mother anyway.. I know you want her to be, Michael, but she’s not.. I’ve been saying it for months… Mark my words..

    No point in speculating, this show has always surprised me, one of the very few that actually could. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

    I only watch the show once in a while, and didn’t realise that the mother has not yet been identified. I thought the show stated with the reveal, and was now proceeding on how they met.

  • Jackson

    What happened to Nora (Danneel Harris); Stella’s sister being the mother?

  • Kristine

    And wasn’t HIMYM’s last 60 seconds soooooo telling last week? They meet, a year later, Robin (next to Barney hmmm…) is in from Japan, Marshall and Lily and her line, “Let’s go up to the apartment…” Where’s Ted and his “family”? Sure, Ted’s there, but…

  • Tom

    Who cares – show sucks

  • Shannon

    anything is better than Stella, they have about as much chemistry as oil and water.

  • Mary

    The producers ruled out Stella’s sister being the mother a long time ago.

  • Kristin

    Did you guys not read Michael’s sarcasm here?
    “Translation: Sigler’s got to be Mother’s mother, right? I mean, she’s female. She’s the right age. She’s a woman. Did I mention she’s also the right age?”
    It’s funny how every woman that comes on the show is speculated to be the mother. I could be wrong but my guess is we won’t meet the mother until the end of the series. It will probably be some no name actress or something. haha The jokes on us!
