Jason Ritter

Jason Ritter is an actor perhaps best known for his roles in shows like Joan of Arcadia and The Event. Son of actor John Ritter, Jason has acted all his life in projects like Freddy Vs. Jason and Raise Your Voice (maybe the only time those two movies have been used in the same sentence). He’s also in Jen Kirkman’s first Drunk History which he is great in, mostly because the video is so great. Seriously, watch it if you haven’t.
