John Lithgow, Neil Patrick Harris
One of How I Met Your Mother's biggest mysteries (no, not that one) will be revealed on Monday, but don't remind John Lithgow how big of a deal it is.
"I didn't watch the show ... so I didn't know that it was such a big deal to be asked to play Barney's father," he tells TVGuide.com. "I didn't know it was a six-year running gag: Who is his actual father? I said yes to it before I knew about all this. This is very typical of me — I don't really know what I'm doing. Everybody's so excited. There are great expectations now. I'm nervous!"
Will How I Met Your Mother end in two years? Our burning questions answered
Lithgow makes his first of two appearances Monday, as Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) at long last comes face-to-face with his absentee dad — the man he once thought was Bob Barker and the man his mom, Loretta (Frances Conroy), had previously told him was merely "Uncle Jerry." After receiving the letter Barney wrote him last month, Jerry surprises his son at his apartment to forge a relationship. "It's explained why [there was no contact] for 30 years," Lithgow says. "There's a lot of longing and need on both sides, as it happens when a child loses a parent at a young age. On both sides, it's a wanting to...
Ralph Macchio was the Dancing with the Stars cast member that almost wasn't this season. "I came in very late.

Alex O'Loughlin and Larisa Oleynik
Could Larisa Oleynik's recurring guest spot on Hawaii Five-0 mean a new love interest for Alex O'Loughlin's Steve McGarrett?
"Gosh, that's certainly been the question on all of my single friends' minds," Oleynik tells TVGuide.com. The former Secret World of Alex Mack star begins her multiple-episode run on the CBS drama on Monday playing Jenna Kaye, a CIA agent visiting from Langley, Va. "The thing is when it comes to romance with one of the leads, I kind of hope not. I really like all of their romantic story lines so far. So I don't know if it's in the cards, but listen, I won't complain if it is."
Lucy Hale, Ian Harding
Nobody knows what it's like to be in a relationship that's so wrong, yet so right, more that Pretty Little Liars' Ian Harding. Playing the adorably handsome, yet morally conflicted Ezra Fitz, Harding says that although there are legal ramifications for him and his student Aria (Lucy Hale) to be together, they're soulmates.
But the couple may run into some major problems. A cop saw Aria leave Ezra's apartment in last week's episode and a mystery person took the key Aria uses to get into her boyfriend's apartment. Harding tells TVGuide.com that viewers might be focusing on the wrong thing, how Ezra's former fiancé could be returning, and why fans might be upset with him by the finale's end. Plus: Which PLL would Harding's high school self have dated?

What has contributed to Robert Pattinson's film success? It's got to be the hair.
In an interview with MTV, the Twilight star gamely discusses the evolution of his scene-stealing locks, ranging from the so-called "Wavy Forest" and "The Cullen Pouf" to the "Windswept What the F---" and "Controlled Chaos." He admits that he's partial to the "forest thing" and even recalls walking the red carpet for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in 2007.
