You couldn’t pay me enough money to watch Tim Allen’s new sitcom. I’d rather sit through a marathon of Malibu Country instead of watching an episode of Last Man Standing. The ABC Friday night sitcom just seems like a poor man’s version of Home Improvement but with three daughters instead of sons. But for this mini-reunion, I might have to reconsider my stance on the comedy.
Allen managed to talk one of his former on-screen offspring to make a guest appearance on his new show. This reunion won’t be the first Home Improvement alum to stop by Last Man Standing. Earlier this season, Richard Karn who played Al Borland appeared on the show as an architect. Quite a step up from playing Tim’s Tool Time sidekick. Find out who the latest cast member to reunite with Allen is below.
Back in the 90s, Home Improvement was one of the most popular TV sitcoms on television. It was also where we first saw the cute Jonathan Taylor Thomas and where he became a teen heartthrob. He was always on the cover of Teen Beat magazine and every girl (and some boys) had a crush on him. The blue eyes, the sexy voice (which was also the voice of Simba on The Lion King), the hair… He was a cutie patootie, as Rosie O’ Donnell would put it.
Today, Jonathan Taylor Thomas turns 30! I would feel old except I’m the same age as him and as long as we grow up together, than that’s fine – haha. Back in the day, there were rumors that he was gay, but in an interview with The Advocate in 2000, he denied that he was. Now, he seems to be hidden from the public eye, having last been seen on Veronica Mars in 2005. Perhaps living a secret life with a boy in a cute little cottage? Haha, we can only fantasize.
Anyway, check out the photos below of the cast reunion from a few days ago. They’ve all grown up!!
Lately I’ve noticed that so many celebrities seem to be turning 30 this year. In last night’s episode of Kourteney & Kim Take New York, Kim Kardashian did a keg stand for her 30th birthday. She actually turned 30 this past fall on October 21st. Christina Aguilera also turned dirty thirty this past December. I guess I’m more aware of all the stars that are turning 30, because I myself am turning 30 in a little over a week. A lot of the young stars that I grew up with are now going to be entering their 30s with me, meaning we’re all growing up.
People that became famous when they were just kids, like Britney Spears, Beyonce, and even former teen heart throb Jonathan Taylor Thomas, are all turning 30 this year. Josh Groban, who is turning 30 in a week’s time, had this to say about his milestone birthday: “My 20s have been filled with a lot of trial-by-fire moments and uncertainty, but I’m going to enjoy my 30s the way I should’ve enjoyed my 20s.” Who else is turning 30? You’d be surprised…
