How I met Josh Radnor
Happythankyoumoreplease may be the title of writer-director-actor Josh Radnor’s bittersweet coming-of-age directorial film debut, but it also perfectly sums up how much love audiences have been giving the guy who plays Ted Mosby from the hit TV series How I Met Your Mother.
After all, the indie flick about a group of 20-somethings who are learning to navigate life and love in New York City won the coveted 26th Sundance Film Festival’s Audience Award last year and garnered a Grand Jury Prize nomination – a harbinger of future commercial success.
But as the affable 37-year-old told Today over the phone from Los Angeles, he wasn’t even thinking about awards because just getting into Sundance was “a great victory”.
“I got a few days out of work (to attend the festival), and I came back to work and plunged right back to taping (Season 7 of How I Met Your Mother),” he recalled. “And then I got a call from the Sundance film people saying I’ve got to go back there … so I had about an hour to get to the airport and flew back.
