- "How I Met Your Dad," the spinoff to CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" series, has added two new cast members: Nick D'Agosto ("Masters of Sex," above middle) and "Mixology's" Andrew Santino. D'Agosto will play Frank, the "Robin" of the group, though Frank's relationship to Sally (the "Ted") is quite different than the Ted-Robin relationship that kicked off "HIMYM." Santino has been cast as Danny, Sally's older brother. His "HIMYD" role is secondary to his "Mixology" role. They join the already-cast Greta Gerwig as Sally. [ THR]
