Ted Danson's wife Mary Steenburgen has offered John Ritter's actor son her affection following the sudden death of the sitcom legend last month (SEP03).

JASON RITTER stars as the actress' son in the series JOAN OF ARCADIA, and Steenburgen has been offering the mourning 23-year-old a lot of protective affection.

She says, "We're really behind Jason. He's a very good person and a great friend, and we're just here for him. The two of us are very close. He went to school with my kids, and we've done a couple of plays together where I played his mother, and I just want to protect his privacy."
