Who’s the Bob Saget to Greta Gerwig‘s Josh Radnor in CBS’s comedy pilot “How I Met Your Dad,” a.k.a. the “How I Met Your Mother” spinoff? That would be rom-com queen Meg Ryan, who will voice the future version of Gerwig’s character, Sally, in the sitcom.
According to reports, although neither network CBS nor production company 20th Century Fox TV would confirm officially, Ryan has been hired to narrate the new show, and will tell Sally’s future kids how their mom met their dad.
Voice-wise, Ryan seems like a much better match to play future Gerwig than Saget was to play future Radnor, although she sadly is not one of the five actresses Zap2it thought would be perfect for the role. (Joan Cusack, Bridget Fonda, Helen Hunt, Christine Lahti and Lori Louglin were our picks, for the record.)
