LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The Young and the Restless actor Eric Braeden pulled out of a How I Met Your Mother guest starring role last minute -- and Neil Patrick Harris is none too pleased.

Eric Braeden is a D-Bag, Harris fumed on Twitter Friday. The actor, (Robin's dad) agreed to a cameo, then last night bailed, saying the part wasn't 'substantial' enough.

Added Harris, We've recast with Ray Wise, a fantastic actor who makes any part 'substantial'. Super excited to welcome him to the family!

Braeden appeared in a 2008 episode as Robin Scherbatsky's (played by Cobie Smulders) father.
