Tyler Ritter Talks About His Father, John Ritter

John Ritter's Son Tyler Talks About His Late Father and His New Comedy

You might know Parenthood's Jason Ritter as the late John Ritter's actor son, but he's not the only one. After guest-starring in a handful of TV shows, Jason's younger brother, Tyler, scored the lead in The McCarthys, one of CBS's Fall comedies. The series's cast and producers appeared during the Summer TCA, and Ritter took the opportunity to discuss how his brother and father influenced his career. "I was very impressionable as a young kid," he said. "I grew up around the set of Hearts Afire, and I got to see my father enjoy himself at his work, and any young child who sees that starts taking notes subconsciously. I got to see my brother [Jason] on The Class, just loving every second of it, all the while getting to make a couple hundred people laugh every week. I don't actively try to emulate their work; I think we share enough mannerisms and physical characteristics as is that if I added anything more on top of that, it would be disturbing." Executive producer Brian Gallivan added, "There would be moments where it was like, 'Oh, that's John Ritter,' but he's putting his own wonderful spin on it." Check out the trailer for The McCarthys, and stay tuned for the show's Oct. 30 premiere.
