Ritter firing at John Cale.

Ritter was one of Emil Stenz's mercenaries and an antagonist in White House Down.

He was played by Andreas Apergis.

White House Down[]

Ritter is first seen entering the White House with Skip Tyler, Carl Killick, Vadim and some other mercenaries. He, Killick and two other mercenaries storm the blue room, and hold them hostage. He is then sent by Killick to find John Cale after he escaped.


When he finds John Cale hiding in the bathroom, he asks him if he has a gun. John says no, claiming that it is a mobile phone, but shoots Ritter twice in the chest with a pistol from underneath his legs, killing him. He fires several bullets from his gun as he falls dead to the ground.
