Krysta Rodriguez is on her way to CBS.

The former Smash star has landed a major role on How I Met Your Dad, the planned How I Met Your Mother spinoff from Carter Bays and Craig Thomas that will flip genders and focus on Greta Gerwig as Sally.

Rodriguez has been cast as Juliet, Sally's best friend, who is described as “a sexy, flamboyant force of nature who runs the most successful fashion blog in the country.”

Not shabby.

In addition to portraying Ana Vargas Smash, Rodriguez has a long history on Broadway, having originated the role of Wednesday Addams in the 2009 musical The Addams Family.

NOTE: Rodriguez has dropped out and will be replaced by Tiya Sircar.

How I Met Your Dad will screen its pilot for CBS executives this spring, but it seems impossible to believe that it won't be ordered to series.

It joins a long list of possible spinoffs this year, from NCIS to Supernatural, Breaking Bad to CSI:

HIMYM Quotes

Ted [to Stella in his dream encounter]: You picked the wrong guy.
Stella: Ted?
Ted: You picked the wrong guy. You made a really, really, really bad choice. What were you thinking? That guy? Are you kidding me? Have you learned nothing in the last eight years? You're just gonna regret this. You know that, right? You are going to regret this, and now there is nothing you can do about it because it's too late. All you can do now is go up there and start your crappy, disappointing life that will never be nearly as happy as the one you could have had with me. Good-bye.
Stella: Ted, wait.
Ted: Look, Stella, I am not here to win you back. I am here because I need to know that you know you made the biggest mistake of your life.
Stella: I know

You are the love of my life. Everything I have and everything I am is yours. Forever.
