Jason Ritter is the son of the late John Ritter, and his first few roles were in his father’s work – on the TV series Three’s Company and as John Ritter’s character’s son in The Dreamer of Oz: The L. Frank Baum Story. Jason Ritter was trained in acting at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, the Atlantic Theatre Company, and at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He had early roles in the films Mumford and Swimfan, and played a part on an episode of Law & Order, before landing a prominent role in the horror blockbuster Freddy vs. Jason in 2003. Since then he has appeared in films such as Happy Endings, The Wicker Man, and W., and on TV shows such as The Event, The Class, and Joan of Arcadia. Recently, Ritter has been providing the voice of Dipper Pines in one of my favourite cartoons: Gravity Falls! Jason Ritter turns 33 today.
