Tim Allen’s former Home Improvement sidekick Richard Karn is set to appear in an episode of Allen’s current ABC sitcom Last Man Standing, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Karn will play Bill, a gruff good old boy and the Outdoor Man’s original architect. He is dumbfounded when he learns he may be losing the account to a young, gorgeous woman — who he assumes got the job because of her good looks.
The episode is slated to air in early 2013.
On Tuesday, ABC ordered five more episodes of Last Man Standing, bringing its Season 2 total to 18.
