As we all know, Bob Saget was the narrator on How I Met Your Mother, providing the off-screen “future’ voice of lead character Ted. And with the series spin-off pilot — titled How I Met Your Dad — heading into production, speculation’s been running wild as to who’ll be be filling ol’ Bob’s big shoes.
Well wonder no more: How I Met Your Dad’s narrator has been confirmed, and it’s none other than Meg Ryan!
That’s right: the rom-com icon will provide the voice of “future’ Sally, spinning the yarn of how she and her eventual husband met (the on-screen role of “present-day’ Sally goes to Greta Gerwig, BTW).
And yes, just like with Bob, Meg will never actually be seen — only heard. Should How I Met Your Dad be picked up for series order at CBS (and it’s pretty much a lock at this point), this will be Meg’s first regular prime-time TV series role.
The best part: she can come to work in her pajamas if she wants!
