Actor scheduled to speak at UCA

Actor, director and writer Josh Radnor will speak at the University of Central Arkansas’s Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall at 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 4.  

The visit is part of UCA Public Appearance’s Distinguished Lecture Series.

Radnor is perhaps best known for his role as Ted Mosby, the central character on the CBS Emmy-nominated comedy “How I Met Your Mother,” but after the show ended its nine-season run in March 2014, he quickly established that his talents extend beyond acting. He has written, directed and starred in two feature films, “Happythankyoumoreplease” and “Liberal Arts,” which both debuted at the Sundance Film Festival.  

Radnor also starred on Broadway in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Disgraced.”

“This is an exciting time to have Josh on campus,” said Amanda Horton, director of UCA Public Appearances. “He just had a successful run with his new PBS television show, ‘Mercy Street,’ and it has been renewed for a second season. Many of our students grew up watching him as the star role, Ted Mosby, on the CBS sitcom ‘How I Met Your Mother’ and are thrilled that they will get to see him lecture in Central Arkansas.”

Radnor has had several articles published in the Los Angeles Times Magazine.  He has also written for The Huffington Post, Indiewire, Moviemaker Magazine, The Rumpus and Guilt and Pleasure Magazine.  

Tickets are $15 for the general public and free for UCA students with a valid ID. Tickets are $5 for UCA faculty and staff.
