Actor John Ritter Dies at 54
Emmy Award-winning actor John Ritter, who gained fame playing bumbling and lovable characters in two television comedies decades apart, has died, a representative said early Friday morning.
Ritter collapsed on Thursday evening while filming '8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter,' the ABC television comedy which had reinvigorated his career and was a centerpiece of the network's upcoming fall season.
And 8 Simple Rules was just beginning to show promise. Very sad to see this man go.
