LOS ANGELES -- CBS says "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston is coming back to "How I Met Your Mother."
Cranston will reprise his role as Hammond Druthers, who was Ted's old boss until he had a meltdown, the network said Wednesday. Ted is played by series star Josh Radnor.
It's a real change of pace for Cranston, who plays teacher-turned-meth maker Walter White on AMC's "Breaking Bad." The series, which won a best drama Emmy Award last weekend, airs its season finale on Sunday.
"How I Met Your Mother" began its final season on Monday.
