Meg Ryan is set to play the role of future Sally in How I Met Your Dad.
Meg Ryan, 52, will narrate the pilot episode in a similar manner to the way that Bob Saget narrated CBS’ (CBS) How I Met Your Mother as future Ted. Ryan’s role of future Sally will be her first big role in years. The actress has been taking time away from her career to raise her adopted nine-year-old daughter, reports Us Magazine.
Meg Ryan’s role in How I Met Your Dad may be limited as the series is currently only planned to have a pilot episode. The show is set to show focus on Sally and her search to find the father of her children, reports Fox News.
While fans were upset about the ending of How I Met Your Mother, Greta Gerwig, who played Sally, liked the ending of the show. She did however say that How I Met Your Dad will be very different than How I Met Your Mother, Us Magazine notes.
