Masters of Sex star Nicholas D’Agosto is joining the gang over on How I Met Your Dad.

Tarver was discovered at a CBS Diversity Showcase in January and signed to a CBS Talent Holding Deal before being cast in the How I Met Your Mother spin-off. He previously worked on Animal Practice and Newsreaders.

'How I Met Your Mother' spin-off details emerge

How I Met Your Dad is starting to take shape. In fact, producers are already on the hunt for the New Gang.

EW has confirmed that casting is officially in progress for the host of characters that will populate the show, which will revolve around a woman named Sally (Girl Ted), a “vibrant, messy and unpredictable” woman described as a “female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life.” The real twist for this main character, though? She’s got a husband! But we’re guessing ISN’T the “dad” to which the title refers, as the character description for Sally says she’s “thinking of calling it quits” with said husband (named Gavin).

The How I Met Your Mother spin-off is a-go!

EW has confirmed that CBS and 20th Century Fox TV are moving forward with the female-led How I Met Your Mother spin-off, titled How I Met Your Dad, that was first reported to be in the works late last month.

The standalone pilot, which comes from writers/exec producers Emily Spivey and HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, will feature a brand new story and slate of characters. (There are currently no confirmed plans to introduce these in the HIMYM series finale.)

In its final season, HIMYM has performed solidly for CBS, ranking as the network’s No. 1 Monday night comedy and No. 2 comedy across all nights, second only to ratings juggernaut Big Bang Theory.
