Smash alumna Krysta Rodriguez is the latest addition to the cast of CBS’ How I Met Your Mother offshoot pilot, How I Met Your Dad.
HIMYD is described as a “kindred spirit” of HIMYM — only this time telling the story of a relationship from the point of view of Sally (to be played by actress/writer/indie darling Greta Gerwig), a “female Peter Pan” who is thinking of calling it quits with her husband of a year, Gavin.
Rodriguez will play Juliet, a sexy, flamboyant, energetic, party-girl who runs a successful fashion blog and is delighted to learn her BFF Sally is ending things with the terminally boring Gavin.
Still to be cast for HIMYD are Sally’s Type A brother Danny, Juliet’s “hot nerd” colleague Frank, and the Narrator aka grown-up Sally. Drew Tarver last week landed the role of Danny’s uptight husband Todd.
