Josh Radnor on the Future of ‘How I Met Your Mother’

liberal-arts-josh-radnorJosh Radnor was able to take some time away from his sitcom How I Met Your Mother to make the indie Liberal Arts with Elizabeth Olsen.  The movie was a well-earned break from the show Radnor jokes has been on the air for “117 years.”

Radnor hints that the long-running show might be coming to a close soon.  “Right now I feel like, I have four, four-and-a-half months a year to play with every year, and the idea of having 12 months, mapping out a year, to have all that time, feels really exciting to me,” the actor told Moviefone

“At the same time, if they can work out some sort of deal with all of us and with the writers, none of us are saying like ‘Get me out of here,’ anything other than ‘Man, if we finished after eight that would also be amazing.’  I think that they need to figure out something, because they have to let the writers know if they’ll be ending this year or next year,” he said. “It’ll all be figured out in due time, but I think we need to get this figured out for the writers.”

Radnor insists he still doesn’t know who the titular mother is.  “There’s been a nice little tease about that at the first episode.  I think it’s a good sign that people ask about that a lot, because there’s real investment in the show, but at the same time, for me playing the character I’m playing it forward, I have to play it with some naiveté, so it serves me better not to know anything.  I don’t try and do a lot of snooping around, I just go week to week and see what misfortunes befall poor Mr. Mosby.”

Liberal Arts is currently out in limited release, and the new season of HIMYM starts Monday, September 24.
