Becki recently booked the lead role in The Goodwin Games, a pilot from HIMYMcreators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas that centers around a group of siblings whose father has died.

“[On the show,] these three siblings reunite and are sent on this adventure that the father has set up before he passed,” she says. “On the surface, it’s to get them to compete to win his fortune, but what it really is, is three siblings coming together. So there’s this surface element of a great game and adventure, but I believe it’s a family story underneath it all.”

She says that her time on Mother, with its marriage between comedy and drama, was part of the reason she signed onto the pilot. “[These writers] can handle that balance better than anyone.”

“The Goodwin Games” from Carter Bays and Craig Thomas (creators of CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother”), along with writer Chris Harris. The pilot centers around three radically different siblings — a straight-laced overachiever (Scott Foley), an underachieving genius (the fantastic Becki Newton) and ne’er-do-well (Jake Lacey) — who recently lost their incredibly wealthy father. Before he died, he created a series of intricate games to make them compete for inheritance, and in the process, teach them a little more about being a family.

Quinn and Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) are wasting no more time on the getting-to-know-yous, says How I Met Your Mother guest star Becki Newton. After a chance meeting just a few episodes ago, Barney has become smitten with the stripper-turned-apple-of-his-eye. And for further evidence, one need look no further than the display of affection that takes place in tonight’s How I Met Your Mother: The pair’s first “team-up”!

“I think that’s a really exciting development,” she says of seeing the pair work for a common cause. “They spent the first couple of episodes trying to figure each other out and in [tonight’s] episode we see them take a couple of steps further and start to have a good time together.”

Though she declined to elaborate on the situation, we do know that tonight finds Barney and Quinn in a tough spot after the gang stages a “Quinn-tervention” after learning Barney and Quinn plan to move in together. “We are on the fast track, which is very exciting. I think the episode is going to surprise a lot of people,” she says. “Their relationship is very unpredictable, and the people around them are always trying to figure it out. They’re both nefarious characters in many ways, and I think people often question their sincerity for various reasons — and probably rightfully so. And when they pair up, I think it leaves the people around them asking a lot of questions.”

But Newton’s confident the gang will eventually see the truth — and the heart behind the character, who has a tendency to be polarizing.

“I think the cool thing about Quinn is that she’s not overly concerned with what everyone else thinks. She’s a very confident person. But, really, I think [the gang] will see Barney is happy and go from there.”

In producing a new TV series, sometimes things go wrong. With “Love Bites,” the NBC comedy that ends its run Thursday, just about everything did. And Becki Newton, the Guilford actress who starred in the comedy, first unveiled as the lynchpin to last year’s fall season on NBC – only to be delayed until after the end of the TV season in the doldrums of summer – emerged intact.Though it all seems now very long ago.

“We filmed the pilot a year and a half ago, and went through as series of setbacks and delays,” Newton, 33, says over the phone from Atlanta, where her husband Chris Diamantopoulos is playing Moe in the Farrelly Brothers new “Three Stooges” movie.

One of the stars, Jordana Spiro, had to go back to her old series, “My Boys.” The show runner, Cindy Chupack, quit for personal reasons. Once unveiled as the lynchpin to NBC’s fall season last year, it was bumped to midseason when Newton also became pregnant with her first child.

“These kinds of delays happen to a show. There’s not a show where these kinds of things don’t happen, when a show doesn’t go through a lot of changes,” Newton says. “But not often does it all happen to one show.”

Newton’s condition meant her character had to be entirely rewritten.

“Originally my character was going to be a virgin,” Newton says. “When I became pregnant, they wrote in that I was a surrogate mother for my sister. But I have to say when we got our heads together, it made the character so much more interesting,” she adds. “If the show had more time to explore the characters, how she related with her sister after the birth would have been the kind of relationship I don’t think has been on TV before.”

Added 547+ high definition screencaptures from last Thursday episode of Love Bites entitled 1×07 Boys to Men. It was an awesome episode, written so well! We can’t believe the season finale (and most certainly the end of the show) is coming this week! It’s such a shame that amazing shows like this don’t get the recognition that they deserve. This show is so unique and we think it should have more than 1 Season of 8 episodes. But then again Becki is such an amazing actress and we’re looking forward to see her in other projects!
