While Fox is mulling a retrospective devoted to the ’77-84 sitcom ”Three’s Company,” don’t expect John Ritter to introduce clips. ”I can’t see sitting in rocking chairs and going ‘Remember the time we sat on that f—ing dog and Mr. Furley came in and kicked you in the nuts?”’ says Ritter, 53. But a reunion movie with Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers would be another story. NBC is adapting the 1998 book ”Come and Knock on Our Door,” which chronicles backstage battles like Somers’ 1981 dismissal. As in NBC’s ”Growing Up Brady,” though, younger actors would likely play the three stars. ”With CGI, they could make me into a 20-year-old again,” Ritter suggests. ”Or maybe I could read for the part of Mr. Roper.”
