We loved Sarah Chalke in at least the first five or six seasons of Scrubs, as Dr. Stella on How I Met Your Mother, and as Becky number two in the '90s comedy Roseanne, but we're excited to see her in a new part. She just accepted a role as a new congresswoman in ABC's upcoming comedy Freshman. The network describes her character:
[A] sharp and funny freshman congresswoman who was the VP at a multibillion dollar company when she was just 28, and who won her district with the largest margin of any candidate since 1977.
Sounds worth watching, but it's oddly being produced by Arianna Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post. Story aggregation to TV — why not?
