Meet CBS' new sitcom star! Greta Gerwig, known for her roles in Noah Baumbach's films Greenberg and Frances Ha, will star in the How I Met Your Mother spinoff show How I Met Your Dad, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The comedy will be a whole new story line, but like HIMYM, there will be a voice at its center, only this time that person will be a female named Sally.
THR describes Gerwig's character as "a female Peter Pan who never has grown up and has no idea where she's going in life. She just has figured out that she has nothing in common with her husband of less than a year. A breakup is inevitable, but Sally will find a solid circle of support in her friends and family."
In addition to starring in the sitcom, Gerwig is expected to write on the show and will also be credited as a producer.
