Ready to meet The Mother’s best friend?

Smash co-star Krysta Rodriguez has been cast in CBS’ How I Met Your Mother spinoff How I Met Your Dad. She’ll play Juliet, Sally’s (Greta Gerwig) best friend, “a sexy, flamboyant force of nature who runs the most successful fashion blog in the country.” She joins Gerwig and Drew Tarver on the cast.

The spinoff is from the HIMYM team of Emily Spivey, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and tells the story of one coupling from the female’s point of view. In addition to playing Ana Vargas on NBC’s Smash, Rodriguez has a history on Broadway, having originated the role of Wednesday Addams in the 2009 musical The Addams Family.
