    Rom-com darling Meg Ryan and CBS’ How I Met Your Dad are officially MFEO*. Ryan has signed on to provide the disembodied voice of Future Sally in the How I Met Your Mother spin-off’s pilot, EW.com 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.

    "heard-but-never-seen" is a good look for Meg Ryan these days.

    Sounds like "That 80's Show" part two.

    With Meg involved, this opens up plenty of opportunity for product placement ads...
