James Garner Joins John Ritter's Show

Veteran actor JAMES GARNER will join the cast of the late JOHN RITTER's TV show 8 SIMPLE RULES FOR DATING MY TEENAGE DAUGHTER when the sitcom resumes filming on Monday (20OCT03).

The former star of THE ROCKFORD FILES has signed up to appear in at least the next four episodes, the first segments produced since Ritter's sudden 11 September (03) heart attack death.

Garner will play the father of Ritter's TV wife KATEY SAGAL, and the return episode of the show will centre on Ritter's character's family coping with his death.

Garner's character, recently separated from his yet-to-be cast wife, will stay around to support the family.

The show is expected to make a return in November (03).
