This one will get lost in the news of Johnny Cash, but it's still a shocker.
too bad he was a great actor.
Yeah, double whammy today for sure. Like Johnny Cash, I have great memories of "Jack Tripper". When I first joined the Navy back in the mid 70's, we would all gather in the barracks rec room when "Three's Company" came on. Mostly to watch Suzanne Somers jiggle, but who could forget the slapstick mastery of John Ritter as the pretending to be gay Jack Tripper. We would bust a gut every week laughing so hard. RIP.
This is really sad, he was only 54 years old.
He was also the voice of Clifford the big red dog.
Ritter's new show("8 Rules...") is a hit.
And it''s funny!
this is truly a shocker!
i used to watch that show with him and the two chicks in the 80's;
what a bummer
This is a shocker. Ritter was a good actor and
a very underrated physical/slapstick comedian
(his idol was Jerry Lewis). He was like a male
His father was legendary singing cowboy Tex Ritter
from Carthage, TX.
Thanks for the laughs.
I'll say. I barely heard about Johnny Cash and I get this whopper!
What a sucky day.
Soem type of heart problem I hear... terrible.
He died from a tear in his aeorta (sp?) Unforunately it was undiagnosed. Apparently its a rare condition that can come up suddenly for no reason.
I think the hardest fact of this is that, this wasn't an ailing actor who was getting on in years, or even a younger person who was sick, on drugs or someone you'd look at and go "well I'm kinda not surprised.." He was in good health, fairly young and probably the biggest thing is that he's still on tv. If he kind of disappeared and was just a "where is he now" it would still be strange. But not as hard as the fact that he was just doing a hit show.
Yup, 2 johns leaving our lives at once... *tear*
Very depressing news today.
Even though I havent been a big fan of some of his shows since Three's Company, I have pulled for him to suceed just because how much he made me laugh as Jack Tripper. When I was a kid, I wanted to be Jack.
Very sad indeed. Thanks for laughs John.
His daughter is a senior at Vassar, I haven't met her, but I see her around. I hope she'll be alright.
I loved the Problem Child movies....what a shame
He and Johnny Cash are going home together.
I grew up watcing threes company, one of my favorite shows. Seems as though when something like this happens, a part of our childhood dies with it.
I loved Three's Company and I loved John Ritter. I was absolutely heartbroken when I heard he had passed away.
RIP Mr. Ritter.
Thanks for the laughs.
