Well, he could’ve been the dad.
The Workaholics vet and Mindy Project alum is joining CBS’ How I Met Your Mother offshoot pilot, How I Met Your Dad in the recurring role of Gavin, the (soon-to-be-ex) husband of Greta Gerwig’s soulmate-searching Sally, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Nick D’Agosto (Masters of Sex) has also joined the pilot as Frank, the head of IT for Juliet’s (Krysta Rodriguez, Smash) fashion blog.
In addition, Andrew Santino will guest-star as Sally’s older brother Danny, an uptight lawyer. Santino’s casting is in second position to his role in ABC’s Mixology, which has yet to be renewed.
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.
The cast also includes relative newcomer Drew Tarver.
