John Ritter

John Ritter became famous as the bumbling ladies man Jack Tripper on the hit 70’s and 80’s sitcom “Three’s Company.” Ritter was a veteran in Hollywood who starred in over 100 film and television projects. In 2002, he landed another lead role on television as a TV dad on ABC’s “8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter.” But in the second season, Ritter collapsed on the set of the show and was rushed to the hospital. He suffered a fatal heat attack later that night. The show retooled, was shortened to “8 Simple Rules” and James Garner and David Spade were brought in as replacements. The show lasted one more season.
