No first-day jitters for Britney Spears. Arriving promptly at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday on the L.A. lot of the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother with her assistant Brett in tow, Spears quickly got to work impressing her costars. "It pains me to report that on the first day of the shoot, Britney knew her lines better than I knew mine," actor Josh Radnor tells PEOPLE exclusively. "She's been great to work with." In the episode, which will air March 24, Spears plays a receptionist at a dermatologist's office, who falls for one of the show's main characters, Ted, played by Radnor. She is expected back on set tomorrow for a second day of shooting.
Britney herself is having "blast", she says: "Working at How I Met Your Mother has been so terrific. Everyone, including the cast, the crew and the producers, has been wonderful and Abby is such a fun girl to play. I'm having a blast!"
Woot! All indications are that Britney is kicking ass on this ep of HIMYM and that everyone involved with the project is loving her to bits. I'm fairly confident that this sitcom appearance is going to do wonders for her public image. I, for one, can't wait. Holla! [Source, Source]
