Meg Ryan to be Voice in New Series

The mother has a voice: Meg Ryan has been cast as the narrator for CBS’ How I Met Your Mother spin-off.

The actress has landed the unseen vocal role in the How I Met Your Dad pilot, which is considered an obvious front-runner for a series order for CBS’ schedule next season. She’ll supply the voice of “future Sally” (played during the series in flashback by Greta Gerwig), the same way Bob Saget supplied the voice for future Ted in HIMYM. Like Saget, her character will never be seen.

Ryan is one of the original modern-day rom-com movie stars, having launched her carrier in 1989 with the hit When Harry Met Sally. She’s since appeared in Sleepless in Seattle, In the Cut, and had a recurring role on Showtime’s Web Therapy. How I Met Your Dad is her first major prime-time TV series regular role. CBS and studio 20th Century Fox TV had no comment.

This will be Ryan's first big role in years. The girlfriend of John Mellencamp has taken time off to focus on parenting adopted daughter Daisy, 9. She has appeared on several episodes of the TV series Web Therapy in 2013 and her last film was 2009's Serious Moonlight. In October 2013, Ryan announced that she would be starring in and producing a comedy for NBC.

"I loved it so much," she said. "No, I wanted [Ted and Robin] to [end up together]! I'm such a schmaltzy person. It's like, yes, I know that Annie Hall is the best ending of all time when they don't end up together. But really, in my heart of hearts ... I love in When Harry Met Sally when they end up together. I'm a little too corny for the sadder version reports Entertainment Weekly."

Fans of the How I Met Your Mother series suffered heartbreak when the spinoff got the boot from CBS! However, it seems that How I Met Your Dad hasn't given up yet!

They Came Together: Paul Rudd & Amy Poehler Lampoon Rom-Coms

Source: movie fanatic

If you are going to make a Scary Movie like film that parodies romantic comedies like the Wayans family made fun of horror movies, who better to lead the way than Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd? In They Came Together, the two are a dynamic duo of trashing a beloved -- yet tired -- film genre. Rudd and Poehler star as a pair of mismatched fools who find love in spite of themselves and they utilize every cliché in the book on the way to tr ...

11 Great Romantic Comedies to Stream on Netflix

They Came Together comes out this week, with stars we love (Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd), and a premise we can't resist: it's a romantic comedy satire. It feels like it's high time to skewer the genre, since the last few years have been a bleak time for romantic comedies. I don't know what happened to girls just standing in front of boys asking them to love them or why Tom Hanks isn't shutting down Meg Ryan's shop anymore; I just know that this genre isn't ...

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
