Meg Ryan will be the narrator on CBS' new ripoff spinoff reimagining of "How I Met Your Mother"---"How I Met Your Dad."
Meg Ryan has an adorable voice, so this is a good fit for a warm and fuzzy kind of show (if by "warm and fuzzy" you mean "leads to no payoff in the end").
But does her voice sound like Greta Gerwig's, who will be playing the "Mother"? One of the things people often argued about with HIMYM was the fact that Bob Saget's narration sounded nothing like Josh Radnor.
Let's analyze. Here's Meg Ryan's voice in You've Got Mail when she finally zings Joe Fox.
Here's Greta Gerwig in Frances Ha.
I don't think they sound anything like each other. In fact, I've always wondered why HIMYM didn't just have Josh Radnor narrate all these years.
Although if Greta Gerwig has a fake orgasm scene in a deli that I don't know about, maybe that's the clincher.
