A How I Met Your Mother Community
CBS (ended 2014)

SPOILER ALERT: HE'S NOT THE DAD

... Things are really starting to take shape over at How I Met Your Dad, the spin-off pilot of How I Met Your Mother. Anders Holm (Workaholics, The Mindy Project) has landed the recurring role of Gavin, the soon-to-be ex-husband of Greta Gerwig's lead character Sally. The potential series would follow the same format as the original series, only with Sally and four of her friends at the forefront. Her character is essentially the Ted Mosby of the series, and is described as being a "female Peter Pan" who's thinking about divorcing Gavin after only a year of marriage. [TV Line

CASTING NEWS


... The Whoniverse has added a new guest-star: When Doctor Who returns for Season 8 later this year, Peter Capaldi's Twelfth Doctor will come face-to-face with Ms. Delphox, a character with a dark secret to be played by Keeley Hawes (Upstairs Downstairs). The Doc will meet Delphox when he arrives on a strange and puzzling planet... which is not to be confused with all of the other strange and puzzling planets that have previously appeared on the series, of course. [BBC America via press release]

... Emily Bergl, who plays Frank's long-lost daughter Sammi Gallagher on Shameless, has been upped to a series regular for Season 5 after appearing in 10 episodes this season. Good news or bad news, Shameless fans? [Deadline]

... Geoff Stults, who currently stars on Fox's Enlisted as eldest brother Pete, has joined a comedy pilot at CBS. Cuz-Bros follows Nick (Stults), an L.A. sportscaster and ladies' man whose life is turned upside-down when his decidedly less cool and not-at-all suave cousin moves in. This news does not bode well for Enlisted, guys. Let's all join hands in a prayer circle and wish upon a star and then go outside, turn around three times and spit, and just hope that Enlisted gets renewed before this pilot can get picked up, because it's turned out to be a pretty fun show. [THR]

... Showtime has promoted Nazanin Boniadi, who guest-starred in the third season of Homeland as CIA analyst Fara Sherazi, to a series regular for Season 4. Fara is said to play a "key role working for Carrie at the CIA" next season. [Showtime via press release]

... Joe Morton (Scandal) has joined the cast of TNT's drama pilot Proof, which stars Jennifer Beals as a surgeon who's recently begun researching and investigating supernatural phenomena like resurrection and out-of-body experiences (oh good, more resurrection stories!). Morton will play her boss, Dr. Charles Russell. He's described as "serious, dry, and intimidating." Someone get that guy laid or something! [TV Guide]

... Odette Annable (Banshee) has been cast as one of the leads in ABC's straight-to-series Astronaut Wives Club. She'll play the youngest wife, Trudy Cooper, who's a licensed pilot and a bit of a tomboy. [Deadline]

... Anne Heche has scored a lead role in USA's six-episode series Dig, opposite Awake's Jason Isaacs. The series follows Peter (Isaac), an archaeologist who uncovers a 2,000-year-old conspiracy that threatens to change history as we know it; Heche will play Lynn, Peter's boss at the Jerusalem FBI office, as well as his main love interest. Yeah, that shouldn't be a problem at all. [THR]

... Kevin Nealon (Weeds) has joined the cast of Rob Lowe's new comedy pilot The Pro, which stars Lowe and Rob Riggle as former doubles partners who had a public falling-out and now work at a tennis club giving lessons. There's no word yet on who Nealon is playing, because this bit of news came from Rob Lowe's Twitter, which is actually where I get all of my news. [Rob Lowe's Twitter]

... Ashley Argota (True Jackson, VP) is leaving Nickelodeon for ABC Family, where she'll join the cast of the critically adored series The Fosters. She'll play Lou, a beautiful singer who catches Brandon's eye. [TV Line]
