Cobie Smulders is building on her Avengers Assemble success by bagging another new movie role.

The How I Met Your Mother star - who recently gave an impressive performance in Joss Whedon's Avengers film as SHIELD agent Maria Hill - has landed a part in Safe Haven alongside Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough, reports Variety.

The movie is a big-screen adaptation of the novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks, and follows a young woman with a dark past, played by Rock Of Ages star Julianne, who arrives in a small North Carolina town and begins to learn to trust again as she falls for Alex, a widowed store owner played by former Transformers actor Josh.

Canadian actress Cobie has been cast as a neighbour in the movie, which will be directed by Lasse Hallstrom.

It has also been confirmed that the 30-year-old actress has been added to the cast of comedy They Came Together.

Cobie, who has a three-year-old daughter with her fiance, actor Taran Killam, will apparently play the girlfriend of a corporate executive played by Paul Rudd.
