Jason Ritter Talks Parenthood And Remembers His Famous Dad

Jason Ritter knows how to make the most of an opportunity. When the 32-year-old actor was invited to guest star on the first season of the NBC dramedy Parenthood, he was only supposed to appear in a three-episode arc as sexy, mild-mannered high school teacher Mark Cyr. Cut to Season 4: Ritter has an Emmy nomination under his belt, his character is engaged to fortysomething single mom Sarah (Lauren Graham) — age difference be damned — and he's even managed to wangle his way into the official family portrait. But all that could be at risk, thanks to the recent arrival of Sarah's new boss, Hank, played with crotchety magnetism by Ray Romano.

Is This the End for Two And A Half Men?

Does Two and a Half Men minus Charlie Sheen equal zero?

Executives at CBS and Warner Bros. TV — who on February 24 decided to shut down production for the remainder of the season — are just beginning to sift through the carnage left in the wake of Sheen's tirades, in which the actor trashed his boss, Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, among other targets. But so far, the prognosis isn't good for TV's most-watched comedy.

Every time Sheen throws another slur at Lorre — whose given name is Charles Michael Levine, even though Sheen insists on calling him "Chaim" — the door to a ninth season ofthe show comes closer to shutting for good.... read more
