Yes, That Was Bunny Colvin From The Wire On How I Met Your Mother This Week

It’s unlikely that The Wire and How I Met Your Mother share a lot of fans, as superfans of The Wire tend to be the type of people who say “I do not watch sitcoms,” so that makes it even more amusing that this week’s episode guest starred Robert Wisdom, basically playing his Wire character Bunny Colvin as the tough but fair laser tag manager who bans Barney for life. And it’s funny even if you don’t even know who he is:


The rest of the episode, which was based on Danny Glover’s “I’m too old for this shit (stuff)” line in the Lethal Weapon movies (no, really, it was based on that), was a classic stand-alone no-romance HIMYM episode. You can watch the whole thing here.
