Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing brood will look a little different in Season 2.

Alexandra Krosney, who played Kristin, the eldest daughter of Allen’s Mike and Nancy Travis’ Vanessa, has been let go from the show for creative reasons, TVLine has learned exclusively.

According to sources, the role will be recast.

UPDATE: Amanda Fuller (Grey’s Anatomy) has been cast as the new Kristin. Also, Jordan Masterson (Greek) has replaced Nick Jonas as Kristin’s babydaddy Ryan.

Last Man relocates to Fridays at 8/7c starting Nov. 2, where it will be paired with the new Reba McEntire sitcom Malibu Country.

  • Malibu country sounds & looks like a total flop. why do they even spent money on that?!?

    • It’s actually a strong, funny pilot – the trailer they cut for it is awful. It’s near-universally liked from those that have seen it and it tested incredibly high, too.

      • plus its got reba mcentire. Reba was a fun family sitcom, despite what others might say about it.

      • The trailer made it look like Hannah Montana, but if you’ve seen the pilot and say it’s different to the trailer I guess I could give it a shot.

        • Did someone say this reminded them of Hannah Montana? Which ep, cause I didnt think it resembled that show at all! Unless you compare the hotness of the girls to how Miley is trying to act nowadays, lol!

          • I meant with the whole moving to the beach, pursuing a music career, parent/child relationship. The humour wasn’t Hannah Montana but the atmosphere (even the house) was. It’s kind of like if HM focused on the dad instead of on Miley.

      • Reba McIntyre sucks soooooo bad. Her fake accent sounds like she has a mouthful of spit. I would not watch a commercial with that hateful b@tch in it.

        • First off her last name is spelled McEntire and second that is her real accent not fake.

        • No fake accent – you obviously are not a country music fan, or you would know how to spell her last name

        • Maybe if you knew country music Reba is one of the best out there.I have been a loyal fan of hers for years and if you don’t like her you dont need to watch her show but the others who have and enjoy her will without you B*tch.Try reading her book, and then you might think twice before calling her a B*tch she WORKED for her her accomplishments

          • I did not like the guy who played her son-in-law on her last show. I loved the woman who played her oldest daughter on that show & I loved her new show ” Animal Practice” Dr Rizzo was d’bomb. Reba’s new show is getting better. Never heard anything bad about Lily Tomlin & they’ve given her good lines. It would be nice if they invited some people off the old show onto the new show. But not the son-in-law.

        • Lisa, you are an IDIOT! Get your facts straight — that IS her accent, and is NOT put on, and she is HARDLY a b*itch, unlike YOU! Hateful? Sounds like you are talking about yourself! Go look in the mirror — you are NOT going to like what you see, or maybe there is NO hope!

    • The show is actually better than the trailers. I almost did not watch because of the crappy trailers, but nothing else was on so I did and it was not bad.

    • I LOVED THE OLDER DAUGHTER. I loved all of the family cast. I can see recasting Nick Jonas’s part, but I loved the connection between the family. The oldest daughter had a perfect humor to match Tim Allen. =[

          • She has no personality. Doesn’t fit in with the rest of the cast. Bad choice in casting with this one. We will not continue to watch the show if they keep this girl. Yes – She’s THAT annoying.

            Comment by C – November 9, 2012 08:30 PM PDT  
        • I agree. This new girl isn’t as good. My prediction, this is the last season of this show

        • I totally agree , the original Alexandra was so cute and worked great on the show.
          The new one is a total bust, looks and acting . The new baby daddy is a joke to. Hope they don’t change any other characters :(
          Is there a site or something we can , write to the show or Tim Allen ?

          Comment by Shar – November 9, 2012 05:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Agree. New actress is well…a bad actor. The new baby daddy is annoying and adds nothing – especially humor to the show. Loved the show last year.

            Comment by GrandmaJ – November 9, 2012 05:28 PM PDT  
          • Do NOT like the new actress AT ALL. She just does not work the way the original Kristin did. I like Last Man Standing BUT get distracted watching it because there is no flow to it anymore with the new Kristin. BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL ACTRESS!!!

            Comment by Jane – November 30, 2012 05:33 PM PDT  
          • I agree the original older sister is perfect this one I just didn’t like her at all then she opened her mouth on the show and I really don’t like her now it’s like they are trying to make her fit and she just does not.

            Comment by Lesley – December 15, 2012 05:09 PM PDT  
        • I miss Alexandra Krosney on this show. I think here chemistry worked much better with the rest of the cast. And the guy they got to play Boyd’s dad is really annoying.

      • I agree! The original Kristin was a much better actress and the chemistry between the daughters was better. I can see making Boyd’s character older, but they should have kept the original Kristin.

        Fuller is aweful!!!!

        • I agree, watching the show now isn’t the same. The whole time watching I kept thinking don’t they think no one will notice bad move. They need to fire the guy making those decisions it will ruin the show I really liked the show but its just not the same. Don’t know if I will get in it this season. And Another thing people making these stupid changes if you do good for a first season don’t make changes to the second. You don’t see them doing it in modern family.

      • We do not like the replacement actress in the role of Kristen, or the new dad or the older Boyd! Messed the entire thing up. They are all too old for these roles. Loved all of the actors in the first season! Next thing ya know he will replace Nancy Travis!!!

        Comment by Deb Clemens – November 5, 2012 03:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • The new Kristen is totally wrong. There is no chemistry or flow between the family members. Boyd’s dad is not a good fit either and with their personalities, it seems very unrealistic that he and Kristen would have ever hooked up. It’s a shame…all the rest of the characters are perfect. Work out the creative problems with the original Kristen and get her back.

      • Disappointed with the new daughter. Krosney was a natural with the family. New Kristin…not so much. She actually looked like an imposter…didn’t even relate to the other girls. I kept waiting for someone to say “I don’t even know who you are anymore!”

      • Going to a liberal view makes my stomach turn and ruins the base of the show. One of my favorite shows and actors is now in a typical socialist view of america and not what made this country strong! welcome to everyone gets a trophy society, that makes me sick! Congratulations socialist! I had no problem showing both sides of a view, but the ignorant view (clueless) of the daughter and dead beat dad( idiot) I cannot stomach! I’m sad to say my DVR recording is deleted!

        • I completely agree. This politically motivated show is just hard to watch now. The writing is horrible and the new daughter, grandson and (ugh!) babydaddy are awful!! All terrible actors! I say, Go back to last year’s format or I’m not watching anymore!

            I preferred a Comedy to Escape the Realities of Socialist Media, but Apparently that’s not Allowed with Season 2.

          • Socialist? You call what Tim pontificates socialists? You can’t tell that what conservatives think is being illustrated as foolishness? I don’t like the newer cast from daughter to son-in-law to grandson but if you think the way Tim Allen presents the conservative makes their viewpoints look silly, it’s because most of their viewpoints ARE silly. If you think the opposing viewpoint to silly is “socialistic” You need to pull your head out of the place “where the sun don’t shine”!

        • I used to be an every episode viewer until I watched the “new girl” cast by Sony “showrunner” Tim Doyle. Seems he is from the opposite side of the political fence than the Tim(Allen) we’ve all grown to know and love. One of Doyle’s trophies is “The Ellen Degenerate Show.” (sorry libs, but just could not resist.) Replacing the “old” daughter with a “new and more politically correct” version for “creative” reasons has been accomplished. He’s created a DUD! It happens all the time on soaps, but hey, we ain’t talkin’ prime time here. Psychologically, every time Ms. New Babe spoke, all I could think of was smackin’ Doyle on the side of his head and sayin’, “What in the freakin’ hell were you thinkin’”? I now know. He WASN’T! So, here’s to you, Mr. Doillie. …one small middle finger and one giant fart in your face for ruining what used to be one great escape I looked forward to watching every week. If it ain’t working for an every episode viewer, it’s a loser, just like you. Hope you are fired next!

        • No one is talking about the youngest daughter. I get the feeling that mopy, gloomy Sylvia Plath-wannabe will put a gun to her head any episode now. Amanda Fuller is boring. As for the liberal stuff, it’s actually brilliant. It shows how ridiculous and goofy the Democratic Party and the left have become since the 1960s. But, then again, we goofballs keep watching their crap and voting them into office no matter how bad it gets.

          • That’s funny and true! I wouldn’t be surprised if someone at the network didn’t get nervous about Tim Allen and decided that an over-the-top liberal presence was needed to overshadow him. You know they were hearing about it from people at the DNC! Look at how they pimped out George Stephanopoulas and Candy Crowley last year. The pitiful thing is, they overreached and made liberals look buffoonish.

  • Contrary to other comments, I think the actress that plays the middle daughter is fantastic, and think Mandy is the funniest character on the show, so I was a bit worried when I saw the picture. Glad it’s the eldest daughter, wasn’t really fond of her, though I’m not a fan of recasts either.

  • thank god it is not mandy, the middle daughter, i.e the one in the picture that was there at this time of posting, she is the best part of the show, so funny.

    Agreed, to an extent on the recasting, out of all the family members, she is the weakest but still way better than any of the work crowd.

    Love to see who they are going to get.

  • im not a fan of recasting, and i thought alexandra was generally likable, but i’d have to agree that she lacked pizazz in comparison with her two younger sisters. i hope they dont pull a Hope & Faith and completely change the character as well. the character works, just not the actress playing her.

      • Everything about the new ep was all wrong to me. They are clearly making Kristin an antagonist to Tim Allen’s character, which is a complete 180 from the first season (Probably the creative differences that got Krosney let go from the show). Boyd’s dad was an air-headed pretty boy in the first season and now he seems to have grown a brain and understands politics. And Boyd being older and hearing him talk was grating to me. I am not giving this show anymore of my time. I just discovered Last Man Standing a few days ago (don’t have TV where I live) and burned through the entire first season. I loved it. This first ep of the second season has left a bad taste in my mouth.

  • Well, I liked this show but won’t be watching it anymore. I absolutely hate recastings, especially when I can see no reason for them to get rid of her. The 3 daughters had pretty good chemistry with each other and its not her fault she got saddled with the more boring storylines and dialogues.

  • Yeah, the middle daughter is hysterical, she’ll probably be a big star. People who don’t like her probably don’t like the character she’s playing but she does it so well. Wasn’t the older daughter on Lost, she playing Daniel’s mother in the time travel – young Mrs Hawkings?

    What a shame.

    Comment by Drew – June 11, 2012 10:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • You know what though, I’ve seen worse. How about Boy Meets World when they dropped Minkus. Minkus was in more episodes than Topanga in season 1. How about Family Matters when they just got rid of Judy and her mom after like 4 seasons. Mind you, these were big characters that actually had a lot of episodes on them, not subplots but the main focus of episodes. The worse one is Fresh Prince when they switched Janet Hubert Whitten to that terrible and unfunny Daphne Maxwell after 3 seasons. Compared to those shows, this is nothing but a small blemish and if I were still a little kid, I most likely wouldn’t even recognize the recasting just like I didn’t notice anything different with the above sitcoms. I don’t think the show’s quality will be compromised since she only had one major plot with her baby’s dad coming back and that was it. Mandy and Eve got more major plots and subplots than Kristen.

  • they should have just cancelled it, this show is such a disappointment compared to Home Improvement. I know they had almost canned it because Tim’s salary was too high for the kind of ratings that they were receiving. Ugh, garbage, if its on i’ll watch but no interest to go out of my way. Reba though, i loved her show in the WB super excited to see her new show, she is awesome!

    Comment by Erica – June 12, 2012 12:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • This is precisely why there is so much variety on tv today. You say that this is a disappointment to Home Improvement whereas I think HI sucked the big one and I actually find Tim Allen funny in this show, perhaps because he’s funnier as the manly man stuck with 3 daughters as opposed to 3 sons. It’s all a matter of taste. I can’t stand reality shows and competition shows, yet clearly many people do as they’re still on the air going strong. I agree with Reba though, I find her hilarious

  • Mandys pretty hot, naturally, and she was compelling at the beginning, esp when dealing with being a single mom, but they seemed to have shuttled her to the back burner, so she probably had enough of that treatment! BTW, whatever happened to Boyd? I half expect him to show up on a milk carton!

  • I really hope that they recast this part carefully because, as many people have pointed out already, recasts can be tricky to say the least. If they cast the wrong person into the part it will likely spell the end of the show. it is going to be hard to find someone that fits with the chemestry of the existing cast and I’m not sure how much time fans will allow the show to find its groove again with the change in casting.

    Comment by Brandon – June 24, 2012 11:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Probably why you, as well as others, were confused is, that the two eldest daughters looked alike, untl they made Mandy bat crazy, and Eve looks nothing like them! Hey, heres wishing Alex the best, but if anyone had to go, then Kristen it is!

    Comment by brutony – June 24, 2012 12:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The whole idea of recasting any role only worked 2 times in tv history every other than that its been terrible. Megan Fox on Hope and Faith and the oldest Daughter on My wife and Kids. But on my wife and kids they had to completely change her character from a tough tomboy to a ditzy pretty socialite type. So makes you wonder what creative has planed. Either way I feel bad for the girl, and wish hr all the best in the future.

    • I really enjoyed the show & am one who will not watch now; i do not believe it will even make it for all of season 2. Soap operas always recast & make babies older- one minute the 2 year old is two & the next 18?!?!?! This is a foolish move & I cannot believe Tim Allen thinks recastibg & changing the baby’s age is a smart move. (Sigh) I was originally excited to see LMS had a second season. Never been a fan of Reba as a singer or actress, but I go out Fridays so no love-loss for me. Biggest career suicide for LMS.

    But Fuller is too difficult to look at, and they make no effort other than a cheap dye job to make her seem like Alexandra. Disgusting. Lost my viewership completely.

    However, I’ll be back if Alexandra comes back, and I’d love a reason to come back to this show.
