Jayma Mays and Becki Newton return to "How I Met Your Mother" | CBS

"How I Met Your Mother" has always been a little nostalgic (to say the least), so it's no surprise that the CBS comedy is inviting a number of familiar faces as the show gets closer to its Season 9 climax.

According to TVLine, "Glee's" Jayma Mays, who last appeared in the Season 1 episode "Okay Awesome," where she had a brief flirtation with Ted in the nightclub where she worked as the coat check girl will return. Could she be the mother? Mays will reportedly return in the March 18 episode.

Becki Newton is also returning to "How I Met Your Mother," Entertainment Weekly reports. The actress' character Quinn, who broke off her engagement to Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) earlier in the show's current eighth season, will return in the episode airing on April 15.

Rachel Griffiths joins NBC's "Camp." The "Brothers and Sisters" alum will play the titular camp's director in the summer series. The character is described as " the typically upbeat, relentlessly positive camp leader who runs the facility with the golden rule that having a good time is not optional," although she'll secretly be hiding some personal pain. Tim Pocock and Dena Kaplan have also been cast. [The Hollywood Reporter]

BBC America has found its "Musketeers." Luke Pasqualino ("Skins") will play D’Artagnan alongside Tom Burke ("The Hour") as Athos, Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes") as Aramis and Howard Charles as Porthos. Peter Capaldi, Tamla Kari, Maimie McCoy, and Hugo Speer will also star in the 10-part series. [BBC]
