The How I Met Your Dad cast is slowly starting to take form with Smash alum Krysta Rodriguez joining the spin-off as Juliet, best friend of Greta Gerwig's Sally. Juliet is "a sexy and flamboyant party girl force of nature, who runs the most successful fashion blog in the country," which makes her the Barney Stinson of the group. The Bertha Stinson, if you will. Rodriguez's character is also apparently excited for Sally to leave her husband of a only year at the beginning of the series, so if you're keeping track, he's probably not the dad. »

Are you ready to meet the female version of Barney Stinson?
CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" spiritual spinoff pilot "How I Met Your Dad" cast "Smash" co-star Krysta Rodriguez in the lead role of Juliet, Sally's (Greta Gerwig) best friend on Wednesday (March 5), THR reports.
Described as "a sexy, flamboyant force of nature who runs the most successful fashion blog in the country," Juliet is clearly the Barney to Sally's Ted. She also takes secret delight as Sally breaks up with her "boring" husband of less than a year, the action that kicks off the series.
Rodriguez's addition to the cast, which also includes Drew Tarver, comes after former "Dollhouse" star Eliza Dushku revealed she was reading the script for the pilot, putting her in the running for Juliet.
Do you think Rodriguez is a good fit for the part? Or would you have rather seen Dushku in the role? »

The 2013 Academy Awards telecast was a mess, but it was an understandable mess. Seth MacFarlane was going to do Seth MacFarlane things, regardless of whether they were appropriate to the setting. And the show featured multiple tributes to the 10th anniversary of "Chicago" because the Oscar-cast was being led by "Chicago" producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron — and, as we were reminded of by the end of Matthew McConaughey's speech tonight, people in Hollywood like to pat themselves on the back when an opportunity presents itself. Zadan and Meron were back as producers of the 2014 Oscar-cast, but the ways in which this year's show went so badly awry, so often — beyond the usual bloat and predictability of any Oscar show in this century — were harder to see coming. In lieu of an 11th anniversary "Chicago" tribute — or a random ode to the Zadan and Meron-produced "Smash" — we got a theme of "Heroes In Hollywood, »

The show, from producers Greg Berlanti and Jeff Rake, is based on the popular Spanish series Los Misterios De Laura, about a woman who juggles being a homicide detective with raising twins.
