Also that year he was honoured with an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. Jack has to fly to a remote island for a party with Janet, being scared of flying he takes some tranquilizers.
He had been nominated for an Emmy twice before in 19. However washing them down with a drink called the "Rocket" can only mean one thing, John Ritter at his best!
In the '90s, Ritter showcased his versatility with a number of supporting parts in indie films and two decidedly different romantic turns on TV---one funny on Ally Mc Beal, the other deadly on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
In 2002, his family-oriented sitcom 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter became a surprise hit and Ritter was again a prime-time star.
Just the week before his death, Nancy and John got son Tyler ready for his first year at University. John had quite a few TV show guest appearances, here are JUST a few...
"Hawaii Five-O" (1968, 1971 & '77), "The Streets of San Francisco" (1972). He also had a reoccurring role on the "Waltons", from 1972-77 where he played Reverend Matthew Fordwick. With the help of reruns, and DVD's new generations are able to appreciate this blast from the past.
After eight seasons (and nominations for an Emmy and a Golden Globe) the versatile actor moved on to TV dramas (Unnatural Causes, The Dreamer of Oz) and the big screen (two Problem Child movies, opposite his future wife Amy Yasbeck), while also continuing to stretch his comedic muscles in sitcoms.
Since Janet got married and Terri left for Hawaii, Jack moved in with his love Vicky, played by Mary Cadorette.
John was still wonderful, but I found "Vicky" all wrong for Jack.
He also studied with Stella Adler at the Harvey Lembeck Comedy Workshop.
John and Nancy remained friends, even though they were no longer married. In 1966 at the age of 18, John was a contestant on "The Dating Game" (pictured here). While still in college, John traveled to England, Scotland, Holland and Germany to perform in plays. His first TV acting experience was a campus revolutionary in the TV series, "Dan August". In 1971 John got his first movie "The Barefoot Executive".
