Meg Ryan lands new TV role Published: April 24, 2014

Meg Ryan has signed on to provide the disembodied voice of Future Sally in the How I Met Your Mother spin-off’s pilot, reports.

HIMYD is described as a “kindred spirit” of HIMYM — only this time telling the story of a relationship from the point of view of Sally (played by Frances Ha‘s Greta Gerwig) a “female Peter Pan” who is thinking of calling it quits with her hubby of a year, Gavin (played by Workaholics‘ Anders Holm).

If CBS picks up the series (which it is likely to do), Ryan would fill the same role Bob Saget did in HIMYM: a heard-but-never-seen, older version of the main character telling her story from some point in the future, Yahoo TV reports.
