Finally, a story your kids would actually want to hear. According to Deadline, How I Met Your Mother’s Josh Radnor is the latest performer to join Amazon’s The Hunt, which stars Al Pacino as the leader of a group of Nazi hunters sussing out escaped war criminals in 1970s New York, after learning of a plan to “create a Fourth Reich” in the United States.

The former Ted Mosby will play perhaps the coolest kind of Nazi hunter, a Nazi hunter who also happens to be a movie star, though his character’s name is Lonny Flash, which sort of evens things back out. The show, executive produced by Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions, has already cast The Perks of Being a Wallflower actor Logan Lerman and Grey’s Anatomy actress Jerrika Hinton, not to mention Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Carol Kane, who should feel free to treat The Hunt as a prequel origin story for Unbreakable’s Lillian Kaushtupper
