Dwarf Actor Assured Guest Spot On 'How I Met Your Mother' Will Not Be Demeaning

"Trust me, it has nothing to do with your height. The part pays $1,800." Holsapple was also assured that "normal-size" doctors were thrown through windows all the time and that, in any case, "a tiny little mannequin" would be used for that shot.
