Meg Ryan is getting back into acting, but as befits her more private life these days, it’s an off-camera role.
Much as Bob Saget provided the voice of future Ted in the original series, Ryan will be unseen as the voice of future Sally, whose present, on-camera self will be portrayed by Greta Gerwig.
The new show’s structure will be similar to HIMYM, but the story lines reportedly will not intersect.
Aside from a few cameos in the Showtime series Web Therapy, Ryan – a former romantic-comedy darling – hasn’t had any major film or TV roles in six years.
She’s been focusing instead on her life in New York with her 9-year-old daughter Daisy and rocker boyfriend John Mellencamp.
