How I met your dad

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."
