Now that he's done cooking meth and fielding rumors about playing Lex Luthor, Bryan Cranston will return to "How I Met Your Mother" to play Ted Mosby's psychotic boss Hammond Druthers, CBS reports.

According to Us Weekly, the "Breaking Bad" actor is slated for one episode, which will begin shooting soon.

During the show's second season, Cranston played Ted Mosby's (Josh Radnor) boss in multiple episodes in 2006. His character was an unlikable, half-crazed bully. As you may remember, when Lily (Alyson Hannigan) stole his prized baseball that was signed three times by Pete Rose, Hammond promised to fire three people every hour until it was returned.
