    Sad News- John Ritter Dies

    Like This Thread!
    Sad news today, as John Ritter, famous for his work in the 70s sitcom Three's Company and most recently, in ABC's 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter has died of a massive heart attack at the age of 54. It's such a sad shock for him to die so young, and it's awful that it had to happen while he still had a sucessful young sitcom series just getting ready to start its 2nd season.

    Seconded. This is truly one of those came out of nowhere deaths. Ritter always seemed like a really nice guy, 54 is way too young to go.

    Don't know what ABC will do about 8 Simple Rules now, (he collapsed while taping an episode of the show for the 2nd season) but that's probably not important at the moment. Condolences to his wife Amy Yasbeck and his children.

    I heard this about 15minutes ago, and I'm shocked! John was of course one of my favorite actors, and this is very sad news I can guarantee that John Ritter will be missed.


    RIP

    I don't know what to say to this. He was just starting to make his comeback to television in primetime, and had a successful PBS series in "Clifford the Big Red Dog".

    This is truly a sad day for all. I hope ABC does pull the plug on 8 Simple Rules, there's no way they could continue on now. Just show the few episodes that got taped for Season 2 and release them all on DVD to let people remember Mr. Ritter for the great actor he was.

    Goodbye, John, I hope you're making people laugh in heaven with your great talent.

    I came into this forum to see if the news about Johnny Cash had been posted... and now this. God.

    This is a sad day and it just makes it even worse because it's only been one day after 9/11

    Yeah. It's been a really rough week. Warren Zevon, Harry Goz, and now Johnny Cash and John Ritter.

    His performance as the extremely creepy "completely insane threatening wannabe authority figure/oh, he's robot" Ted in the Buffy episode, uh, "Ted," was really, really impressive, as was his performance in Sling Blade and many other films and shows. He was really gifted, and seemed to be one hell of a nice guy, to boot.

    Such a shame. I still can't believe it.

    He was one of my favorite actors. He always seemed like such a really nice guy.


    Thank you for the great times Mr. Ritter.
    Who knows what is really real..... that's the true question in life.

    Ah man....

    I'll admit that most of the celebrities who have passed away recently have only been (legendary) names to me, but John Ritter was someone I remember from my childhood, mainly the Problem Child movies and then later reruns of Threes Company and the movie IT. Very underrated comedic actor, and it's very unfortunate that he left us so young.
