Marty Martin Short, who portrayed numerous wacky characters on "SCTV" and his Jiminy Glick series on Comedy Central, is joining the cast of CBS' "How I Met Your Mother."

Short is slated to play the boss of Marshall Eriksen (Jason Segel) at an environmental law film during a multi-episode arc.

Though mostly known for his comedic turns, Short last season played a dramatic role on "Damages" and has also done other dramatic work on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."
