CBS has added another cast member to their upcoming How I Met Your Mother spin-off. Smash alum Krysta Rodriguez has been cast in How I Met Your Dad as a series regular.
Rodriguez will play Juliet, Sally’s best friend. She is described as being sexy and flamboyant and runs a highly successful fashion blog. She joins a cast which is being led by Frances Ha‘s Greta Gerwig. Newcomer Drew Tarver also stars.
How I Met Your Dad is not a straight spin-off of How I Met Your Mother but “shares the same creative DNA” and tells the story for a female point of view. The comedy will follow Sally (Greta Gerwig), who, though considering breaking up with her Husband, finds support in her close-knit group of friends. The comedy is being produced by 20th Century Fox Television, with Pam Fryman, Emily Spivey, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas serving as executive producers.
