Get More: Casting News

Last Man Standing Season 2 SpoilersLast Man Standing is staging its second Home Improvement reunion this season.

’90s heartthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas has landed a guest spot opposite his former TV dad Tim Allen in an upcoming episode of the ABC comedy.

JTT (as he was so affectionately known back in the day) will drop by a spring episode of Last Man, playing the manager of a high-end restaurant where Allen’s on-screen daughter Kristin (Amanda Fuller) is looking to work. (EW.com and E! Online first jointly reported the news.)

Thomas has laid relatively low in recent years; Veronica Mars, 8 Simple Rules and Smallville make up his latest TV credits.

Fellow Improvement vet Richard Karn also guest-starred on Last Man earlier this season as the man who designed Mike’s sporting goods stores.

  • This might be a reason for me to give Last Man Standing one more try.

      • He dated one of my GF’s back in 2005 I have photos she was 5’6 and when they stood next to each other he wasn’t much taller if any he’s NOT 5’6 he’s (5’3) in height he’s very very short! The Internet puts anything online and he was once married to but now divorced. He’s def 5’3 though.

  • Well, I watched years of Home Improvement for him, might as well watch that episode of Last Man Standing for him. Though i doubt this will have the same effect on my hormones.

  • What a blast from the past. I know he was every girl’s fave on HI but he really wasn’t mine. I liked the older brother LOL. I’ve never watched Last Man Standing but it might be kind of fun to see Tim Allen and JTT together again on tv. I miss Richard Karn on Family Feud. P.S. It’s really cool of Tim Allen to not forget his tv roots and include his former co-stars from his days on HI.

    This show is hilarious. People don’t give it enough of a shot. I wish ABC would just bring back a TGIF line up already!

    • Agreed !! They really should, and the ratings are pretty dcent, in fact good, for a friday night! Love me some Tim Allen! (I just wish they would have kept the older sister from last year, and not this new phoney one they got, urgh…they could also lose the father, terrible actor he is)

  • My aunt recently sent me an ECard that she pictured as a conversation in her head between my 14 year old niece and myself (32). It read “Justin Beiber is so hott! Pssht, he’s no Jonathon Taylor Thomas!!!” HAHAHAHA I was more than infatuated as a teenage girl and we are exactly 6 months apart in age. He still hold a place in my heart :)
