Much like Cobie Smulders’ announcment of William Zabka’s return, James Van Der Beek tweeted the news of his return to the comedy on Friday afternoon. He also posted a photo of the episode’s script on Instagram (see below).

Van Der Beek previously appeared on How I Met Your Mother as Robin’s loser, lame musician, ex-boyfriend Simon in “Sandcastles in the Sand” and last season’s Robin Daggers episode, “P.S. I Love You.”
Will he be bringing trouble for Robin and Barney, pre-wedding? Or appearing in flashbacks…or dare I ask, flash forwards?
