How I Met Your Mother

Narrated through flashbacks from the future, comedy recounts how architect & eternal romantic Ted realized he had better get a move on if he hoped to find the true love found by his best friend Marshall and his wife Lily. Helping him in his quest is Barney, a friend with endless, sometimes outrageous opinions, a penchant for suits and a foolproof way to meet women; and Robin, a pretty newscaster.

Character Bio

Carl photo
Carl is the bartender at MacLaren's, which is frequented by the main characters. In the pilot, he is dating a Lebanese girl. In The Pineapple Incident he writes his phone number on a very drunk Ted's arm to call if he gets lost. Carl's last name is MacLaren and he owns the bar (thus the name). Joe Nieves, who plays Carl, received the part after the scene he was supposed to be in was cut from the pilot but no one had told him, and he turned up on set in full costume (he was meant to be a police officer). As no one wanted to tell him that they had cut his scene, they gave him the role of Carl. He goes on to have a son who helps out at the bar. He is named after one of the assistants to the producers.
