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.

    i guess Eliza Dushku didn’t get the part then…She posted on twitter that she was reading the script and going for it. It seems though that they had a certain “look” in mind for the character though.
