The die-hard fans of How I Met Your Mother are about to meet one of our favorite Broadway stars: Krysta Rodriguez. The Broadway.com Audience Choice Award winner has just landed a lead in the pilot for the CBS sitcom's spin-off How I Met Your Dad.
Rodriguez, who was seen as a dissed Broadway diva on NBC's Smash, will play a powerful fashion blogger on the show, the best friend of series star Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha).
Rodriguez was last seen on Broadway wooing Zachary Levi in First Date (and filming her backstage exploits on the Broadway.com video blog Kiss & Tell). Other credits include The Addams Family, In the Heights, A Chorus Line, Spring Awakening and Good Vibrations.
