Meg Ryan joins cast of 'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff
MANILA, Philippines – Looks like we’ll be hearing from Meg Ryan again soon – literally.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the star of You’ve Got Mail has been tapped to become the voice of Future Sally in How I Met Your Dad, the upcoming spinoff to CBS’ How I Met Your Mother. (READ: ‘How I Met Your Mother’ ends, get mixed reactions from fans)
This doesn’t mean that we’ll see Meg Ryan on the show. It’s likely that the casting will follow the format of the original series, where Bob Saget’s voice merely provided the narration as Future Ted. However, Josh Radnor played the actual Ted in the entire series.
Greta Gerwig (No Strings Attached, Frances Ha) will play the actual Sally in the series. She will also be credited as a writer and producer for the show. (Read about the plot of the show here)
This will be Ryan’s first regular TV appearance. Her last voice-over role was in 2007’s animated film Anastasia. Ryan was best known for her roles in romantic films such as When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and City of Angels.
TVLine reports that other confirmed HIMYD cast members include Anders Holm, Nick D’Agosto (Masters of Sex), Andrew Santino (Mixology), and Drew Tarver. – Rappler.com
