Dallas Roberts and Val Kilmer look alike to me...

I just saw Dallas Roberts in a movie. I have never heard of him before, but was totally distracted when I saw him because his mouth and other actions were so familiar! I finally decided that it was exactly like watching John Ritter talk when he was young. I thought this guy has to be a son! I guess others have seen the similarities also! *S* That is gratifying at least.

I got online to see if Dallas Roberts was related to John Ritter. He really resembles him.. WOW!!

Me and my husband agree he does look like Jonn Ritter.

Amazing resemblance. We noticed it right away--I thought it might be John Ritter's son, or perhaps nephew or very much younger brother.

Oh my gosh! After watching Unforgettable series I almost could not focus on the plot because I could not figure out who he was. I was sure he had to be John Ritter's son! Wow!

I wonder If mr Roberts watched a lot of John Ritter while he was mastering his craft. They both have that metrosexual mannerisms down pat.

I wondered the same thing! I told my husband that this guy HAD to be John Ritter's brother because their mannerisms and looks are almost identical! I know John has a son, Josh, who is also an actor, but he doesn't resemble his dad as much as Dallas Roberts does. How bizarre!!

Dallas Roberts pic posted here may resemble Val Kilmer to you, but if you could see him on TV while he's acting, you'd be surprised to see how much his mannerisms almost match John Ritter's exactly. Wow.

I've been watching Unforgettable for a while now and every time this guy appears, I'm like... he SO must be related to that guy from Three's Company! I can't believe that he isn't!

I just jumped on line immediately after watching 'Unforgettable' for the first time. I googled the program name + 'Ritter' expecting to see that this was John Ritter's son or close relative. At least this thread gives me solace that others are noticing the STRONG similarity.

Dallas reminds me so much of John Ritter. I am so glad others see this also. John was such a unique actor and is missed so much. Dallas will prove himself also as a unique actor. I am sure John would give him his blessing and feel that the similarity between them is the highest form of flattery. Rest in peace John and the best of luck to Dallas for a long and happy acting career.

Ann Ricks I could not have said it better...I too thought Dallas was related to John!!

I would have lost my pay check on this one.. I really thought they were related.

I, too, keep thinking Dallas MUST be related to John, that I keep looking it up. I must be thinking the answers are going to change! LOL

Wow, I was just Googling Unforgettable + Ritter myself when I came across this board, wow I can't believe he's not a Ritter! Its uncanny, even down to some mannerisms

Yes. I just saw him on the good wife and was shocked by the resemblance to John Ritter.

SEEING HIM ON 'THE GOOD WIFE' I CAN'T HELP BUT THINK JOHN RITTER HAD MANY LADY FRIENDS AND HE MUST BE A SON TO HIM. RITTER WASN'T MARRIED IN 1970 WHEN DALLAS WAS BORN AND HE COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN HIS FATHER.

His mannerisms are duplicate to John ritter, smile, and even his voice -its kind of creepy

I think DNA needs to be done, he looks too much like John Ritter for there to be no relation.
wild oats sowed ?

Linda K said...

The resemblance to John Ritter is sooo amazing! I thought for sure he was his son or brother! Not only looks, but his mannerisms!

Dallas Roberts is John Ritter's son from his first marriage.

DailyDoppel said...

Wiki entry for Dallas Roberts says his dad is John Ritter and his mother is Catherine Roberts. But in Ritter's IMdB biography, he has never been married to her. And I could not find a record of them ever being together. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000615/bio

they arent related

Unknown said...

First time I seen Roberts was on TWD i was positive he was related to John Ritter...i never thought he looked like val kilmer...but this guy could play john ritter in a bio thats is for sure

JP said...

I totally thought he was one of John ritters sons, he has two that are actors but I can't believe this isn't one of them. The resemblance is freakish.

Pam Gilliam said...

I was watching shadow people and if the movie info hadn't said it was Dallas Roberts I would have thought it was John Ritter.

Pam Gilliam said...

Just looked again and John ritter died 9 or 10 years before this move ever was aired.

Agreed

I checked Wikipedia and can't see that reference ��

Too many similarities for there to be no connection. And only a reference to his father being a Texan. Doesn't the Texan hAve a name?
