Earlier this month, BWW reported that SMASH star Krysta Rodriguez had signed on for CBS's How I Met Your Mother spin-off HOW I MET YOUR DAD. The Broadway vet was to portray 'Julie', described as a "a sexy and flamboyant party girl force of nature who runs the most successful fashion blog in the country who is secretly delighted when her best friend breaks up with her 'boring' husband".
Today, Deadline reports that following the table read, Rodriguez's character has undergone changes and the role will be recast.
How I Met Your Dad will tell the story from a female point of view, that of Sally (Greta Gerwig), and revolves around a new group of friends in New York. The show's three male leads are played by Drew Tarver, Nick D'Agosto and Andrew Santino. The pilot, from 20th TV, was written by Emily Spivey and HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. Rob Greenberg is directing.
Rodriguez last appeared on Broadway in First Date. Her past credits include The Addams Family, In the Heights, Spring Awakening, A Chorus Line and Good Vibrations. On TV, she recently showed off her musical prowess in NBC's SMASH and has also appeared on Gossip Girl and the TV movies Iceland, Shadow of Fear and It Could Be Worse.
