'How I Met Your Mother' Spin-Off Casts Its Second Gay Lead

Mixology star Andrew Santino will be joining the How I Met Your Mother spin-off How I Met Your Dad as the second half of the show's lead gay couple. 

He'll be paired with Upright Citizens Brigade comedian Drew Tarver and is portraying the brother of the show's lead played by Greta Gerwig. 

Deadline reports:

Santino, repped by CAA and Underground, will play Danny, Sally’s older brother, a perfect but uptight overachieving lawyer. Santino is billed as a guest star in the pilot as his casting is in second position to ABC’s midseason comedy Mixology, which has been soft in its first couple of airings. 

Santino's wild-child character is one of the standouts on Mixology. We're guessing that based on the character description for How I Met Your Dad, he'll look a little closer to this on the show.

What do you think of the casting choice, Instincters??
