Sircar’s credits include an upcoming arc on The Crazy Ones — in which she plays Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character’s assistant — and stints on The Witches of East End, The Vampire Diaries, NCIS and The Suite Life on Deck.

She joins a cast that includes Anders Holm (The Mindy Project, Workaholics), Nick D’Agosto (Masters of Sex), Andrew Santino (Mixology) and Drew Tarver (Upright Citizens Brigade).

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, a “female Peter Pan” who is thinking of calling it quits with her hubby of a year, Gavin (played by Holm).

    Hmm, I thought they’d get someone very different. They seem to be going in a very different direction, it’s a shame I liked the “edginess” that Krysta would’ve brought.

  2. Babar says:

    Crazy Ones actress? My mind went to straight to Amanda Setton when I saw the title. We haven’t even seen this actress in The Crazy Ones yet.

  3. TV God says:

    Krysta would have been better. I absolutely love her. Krysta was the only reason I was going to watch HIMYD, so I will probably only tune in once or twice.

  4. Maki says:

    I really loved her in the Internship. Was quite neat.

  5. Mary Kate says:

    She was great in the Internship! I somehow missed that Anders Holm was going to be in this, so excited!

  6. dude says:

    I remember her from Privileged. Does anyone else remember Privileged?

  7. Kevin H. says:

    I’m sorry but this new girl isn’t Krysta Rodriguez, who would have been way better in the role.

    Guessing they wanted some Diversity

  9. James says:

    I’m glad. No diversity was the reason I wasn’t going to be tuning in.

  10. Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on
    a completely different topic but it has pretty much the
    same page layout and design. Superb choice of colors!

    I’m glad they cast as person of color.
