The actor announced his news via Twitter on Monday.

James’ reappearance — he was last seen in a 2011 episode — isn’t a complete surprise, seeing as how the show’s upcoming swan song takes place during the weekend of Barney’s nuptials to Robin.

Brady next stars in The CW’s Whose Line Is It Anyway? revival.

HIMYM fans, what other family members would you like to see return for the big day?
