As “How I Met Your Mother” comes to an end this March after nine seasons, casting for the spin-off is still underway.

After performing last month as a LGBT participant at CBS’ 9th annual Diversity Showcase, Drew Tarver was signed with the network in a talent holding deal and has now landed a lead role on the new show, “How I Met Your Dad.”

“How I Met Your Dad,” slated to premiere its pilot this year, will be told from the female perspective of Sally (Greta Gerwig). The series will feature a new set of friends in New York with Tarver playing Todd, Sally’s best friend and college roommate who is now married to her brother. The character Sally will be a woman who has no idea where she’s going in her life and has just realized she has nothing in common with her husband of a year. With a breakup seemingly unavoidable, Sally will rally around a close circle of supportive family and friends who are all too willing to offer advice that sometimes misfires.

Tarver has trained at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Westside Comedy Theatre and Acme Theater in New York. He has starred in many Funny or Die videos and has guest starred on “Animal Practice” and “Newsreaders.”
