Meg Ryan Will Narrate ‘How I Met Your Dad’

Meg Ryan will play a part in CBS’ big How I Met Your Mother spin-off. Ryan will provide the voice of the unseen mom, the future version of Greta Gerwig, in How I Met Your Dad, a la Bob Saget in HIMYM.

Like HIMYM, How I Met Your Dad will tell the story of a young woman (Gerwig) looking for love from the prospective of her older self. Like Saget on HIMYM, Ryan will never been seen on How I Met Your Dad. How I Met Your Dad’s pilot, shot this spring, has been generating some good buzz and the show will likely premiere on CBS this fall.

There’s no word whether the show’s twist ending is that the dad’s name is Joe Fox, and that the two met on AOL.
