Jason Ritter on Following in His Father's Footsteps (VIDEO)

According to Jason Ritter of 'The Event,' it's not easy following in his father's footsteps. Ritter said he's occasionally insecure when trying to measure up to his late, great father John on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

Ritter said a director once told him his acting skills weren't on par with his dad's. The director was joking, but it nevertheless had an affect on the young actor.

"Certainly there have been times where all my insecurities will come into it," Ritter said. "One of my first jobs, I did the first take on the very first day and I went over to the director who had worked with my dad before and I said, 'Was that sort of what you were looking for?' And he went, 'Yeah it was good. Not as good as your dad, but...' He was making a joke, but I was like, 'Can we start on the deep insecurity jokes on the second day?'"
