With How I Met Your Mother finally drawing to a close it's full steam ahead with the not-so-original spinoff, How I Met Your Dad. Casting for the new gang has begun and with that comes the official descriptions for each character. Unsurprisingly, they all sound like a pretty standard inverse of Ted, Robin, Barney, Marshall and Lily. Flip a gender here, change the sexual orientation of the rock-solid couple there and it's a brand new show, right? Hopefully How I Met Your Dad has more up its sleeve than simply being the misadventures of a female Ted. Read the descriptions below. Who would you like to see fill the Bob Saget role as adult Sally and narrator?
SALLY | She’s vibrant, messy and unpredictable — a “female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life.” She’s thinking of calling it quits with her husband of a year, Gavin. She’ll lean on her circle of friends for advice and support through the inevitable divorce. That circle includes…
JULIET | Sally’s sexy, flamboyant, energetic, party-girl BFF. She runs a successful fashion blog. She’s delighted to learn Sally is ending things with the terminally boring Gavin.
DANNY | Sally’s older gay brother, a Type A, overachieving lawyer whom she shares little in common with. They nonetheless share a tight bond, although Sally’s decision to move in with Danny after her split with Gavin promises to test that bond.
TODD | Danny’s warm, outgoing husband and one of Sally’s closest friends from college. Unlike Danny, Todd welcomes Sally into their home.
FRANK | The head of IT for Juliet’s fashion blog. He’s a hot nerd. He has genuine feelings for Sally, but it’s a one-sided flirtation. At least for the moment.
NARRATOR | It’s Sally from the future. She’s reliving the events of her past to her kids.
