“How I Met Your Dad” will star Greta Gerwig
CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother” spinoff pilot “How I Met Your Dad” has cast “Mixology” actor Andrew Santino and “Masters of Sex” actor Nick D’Agosto.
D’Agosto (pictured) will play Frank, the head of IT for the fashion blog run by Juliet (Krysta Rodriguez).
In a guest-starring role in second position to “Mixology,” Santino will play uptight, overachieving lawyer Danny, the older brother to Sally, the female Peter Pan-type who sits at the center of the pilot (and who’s being played by Greta Gerwig).
Drew Tarver has also been cast in the pilot as the husband of Sally’s brother.
Billed as a kindred spirit of “How I Met Your Mother,” the spinoff tells the story from a female point of view, featuring a brand new story and characters, and with a new voice at its center.
“HIMYM” creators Carters Bays and Craig Thomas are writing and executive producing the pilot, along with Emily Spivey (“Up All Night”).
“How I Met Your Mother” director Pamela Fryman is directing the pilot.
The pilot is being produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
