HIMYM will stage a mini Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunion between the sitcom’s veteran actress Alyson Hannigan and Seth Green. In an interview with EW, the actor previewed his character on the season 8 installment where he will play the role of Daryl.

Your character is a college acquaintance of Lily and Marshall’s known as “Creepy Daryl.” What made them think of you for that role?

[Laughs] I don’t know. I think they just thought it was funny, because the character is a guy who believes that Marshall and Lily are much better friends with him than they are, and while they’ve moved on and had a whole life beyond him, he’s still holding onto the memories of their friendship.

‘HIMYM’ airs every Monday on CBS.
