The father has (possibly) been found. According to a report from , Hulu’s gender-swapped How I Met Your Mother reboot–How I Met Your Father–has found its male lead to star opposite Hillary Duff. Chris Lowell, who you likely remember most as Bash on Netflix’s GLOW or Piz from the final season of Veronica Mars and the movie that followed, has snagged the role.
How I Met Your Father sees Duff as Sophie, a woman telling her kids the story of how she met and fell in love with their father, using that storytelling device to explore love in the digital age, when everyone’s staring at their phone and dating apps are all the rage.
Per Deadline, Lowell plays Hesse, “who is smart, with a bit of an edge and cynical about love. He’s an aspiring musician who works as an Uber driver to make ends meet and lives with his best friend Tom.” Will he be the father? Nobody knows at this point.
