In continuation from my recent post For the First Time Since 1998 we found out that Entertainment Weekly had brought the Home Improvement cast back together. What we didn’t find out was where our beloved Jonathan Taylor Thomas had been all these years. Here’s what JTT had to say about his long time absence from the business:
EW: You fell off the radar after the show ended and many of the castmembers haven’t seen you since then. What have you been up to?
Thomas: I’ve been going to school, and traveling quite a bit, getting to read a lot of books I’ve wanted to for quite some time. I think at this point, I’d eventually like to work behind the camera. That’s not to say I would never act again, I’m not quite sure to be honest. I still have a passion for TV and film could see myself working in it.
EW: Fans were thrilled to see the cast back together again and to especially see you.
Thomas: That actually sort of surprises me. I didn’t know there would be that kind of response. <– How in the world is so oblivious to the face that he was such a huge teenage heartthrob back in his time?!
EW: You single-handedly gave the teen fan magazines a reason to stay in business back in the 90s. Were you on the cover every week?
Thomas: I guess so, yeah. <– Still so innocent and humble
EW: Has he (Tim Allen) asked you to guest star on Last Man Standing?
Thomas: (Laughs). That has not come up yet. We’ll see about that. I’m sure they have a lot of stories they want to get to. <– I wouldn’t complain if he made an appearance back on screen
Myyy my my
He really hasn’t changed a lick since then
Teen heartthrob Jonathon Taylor Thomas came out of what seemed to be hiding!
Apparently Pat Richardson accidentally tweeted a picture of the recent Home Improvement reunion, brought to together by Entertainment Weekly. Either way fans didn’t hate it – they loved seeing celebrity teen heartthrob, JTT’s face for the first time in over 14 years. I think fans have secretly been waiting for this day to come – and it finally has. It’s funny because for some reason I felt like he’d be closer to my age, and we’d be just perfect for each other by now, but apparently he just turned 30! It’s been 12 years since the memorable series that lasted for 8 years came to an end. Where has time gone? – I literally feel like I was just tuning into this show the other day…
Good news though, for those of you that don’t know, Tim Allen is coming out with a new show this fall that claims to have a lot of similarities to Home Improvement. Last Man Standing now has manly-man Tim living in a “women’s world” while attempting to raise three daughters all at different and interesting stages in their life. Tune in Tuesdays this fall starting October 11th, Tuesdays 8 p.m. on ABC to catch the new series.
Looking at Mark, I would have never guessed he was a popular TV star 15 years ago, yikes dude. Tim still looking good. Zach looks higher than the clouds. Heidi looks great – with a few lip injections here and there? Al…aged well and still looks the same – happy as always. Patricia, the iconic TV mom – looks amazing at 60! And JTT self explanatory, still adorably cute as ever (I don’t think he’s grown in height since the last episode).
I don’t think the boys could get much cuter at this age.
Nice article from Ron Dzwonkowksi from the Detroit Free Press relating to Last Man Standing. Check out the trailer.
