Some big How I Met Your Dad casting news today, as we learned that Meg Ryan has been tapped to play the unseen narrator in the CBS spin-off. According to Deadline, the role will mirror that of Bob Saget in How I Met Your Mother. Just as Saget played the voice of future Ted, Ryan will supply the voice of future Sally (played in the present by Greta Gerwig) as she tells her kids how she met their father. No word on whether Sally’s eventual husband will be named Harry, whether they will meet via AOL, or whether the role will be career-altering enough to finally make these jokes redundant.
