Wayne Brady has been cast to play the brother of Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) on How I Met Your Mother, reports Josef Adalian of Variety:
Harris is white. Brady isn't. So it's safe to assume one of the brothers is adopted, right?
"I feel like the less we say about it, the funnier it will be," said "Mother" exec producer and co-creator Carter Bays. "We wanted to present a different kind of family. (And) we like that 'What the hell?' factor."
