Meg Ryan has been cast on one of this fall's most anticipated new comedy series, CBS' How I Met Your Dad. Well, at least her voice has been cast.
Like Bob Saget on How I Met Your Mother, the veteran movie actress has landed the role of Sally, the future mom who will tell the story to her kids.
The story of ... well, you can figure that out.
Greta Gerwig will play the lead in this CBS show, which will be produced by How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas this fall.
It follow the same sort of set-up as the original sitcom, which went off the air on March 31 to surprising controversy following the major twist at the end.
Saget was the voice of future Ted (Josh Radnor) on HIMYM, and Ryan, perhaps best known for When Harry Met Sally, will do the same for future Sally.
Don't expect to see her on screen ever - future Ted was played by an older looking Radnor when finally revealed - but the name of Sally is a nice touch.
