The cast for How I Met Your Mother spinoff How I Met Your Dad is coming together, with the latest news revealing that Krysta Rodriguez will be joining the show.

Krysta Rodriquez To Star On 'How I Met Your Dad'

Rodriguez, best known for playing Ana Vargas on NBC musical drama Smash, will play Sally’s (Greta Gerwig) best friend Juliet, reported Entertainment Weekly. Juliet is, “a sexy, flamboyant force of nature who runs the most successful fashion blog in the country.” Rodriguez’s character will be among the group of friends that will help Sally find the man of her dreams.

Gerwig’s casting in the lead role in How I Met Your Dad was announced last month. The indie darling star of Frances Ha will be playing a character similar to How I Met Your Mother’s Ted Mosby. However, Sally will be starting off her journey married – but to a guy with whom it’s not meant to be. Newly on the prowl and suffering from a Peter Pan complex, her friends attempt to help her navigate dating in New York City.

Drew Tarver Joined 'HIMYD'

Upright Citizens Brigade member Drew Tarver will play Sally’s close friend and brother-in-law Todd. Todd is the one that invites Sally to come live with him and her brother in their apartment. The brother isn’t entirely pleased with the arrangement.

It’s still unknown who will play Sally’s brother Danny or take the role of the narrator/ older Sally, which was Bob Saget’s job in How I Met Your Mother.

How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas wrote the How I Met Your Dad pilot for CBS. Pam Fryman is set to helm the series' first episode – hopefully of many.
