Barker guest stars on ‘Mother’

Gameshow icon makes cameo on CBS comedy

Bob Barker, come on down! You’re the next guest star on “How I Met Your Mother.”

Legendary gameshow host, who’s leaving “The Price is Right” in June, has signed on to guest in an episode of the Eye’s hit Monday laffer. He’ll play himself, natch.

Lensing on Barker’s bit is set to take place next week on “Price’s” Television City set. Barker’s storyline has him interacting with Barney, the “HIMYM” character played by Neil Patrick Harris.

“This is a voyage of self-discovery that leads Barney to the Showcase Showdown,” exec producer Carter Bays said mysteriously.

Barker’s biggest guest star turn was in the Adam Sandler pic “Happy Gilmore,” in which Barker uttered the immortal line, “The price is wrong, bitch!”
