Jonathan Taylor Thomas to guest star on 'Last Man Standing'

We’re still holding out for a “Home Improvement” reunion movie, but Jonathan Taylor Thomas’ guest spot on “Last Man Standing” will suffice for now.

JTT will appear on a March or April episode of Tim Allen’s ABC sitcom, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The 31 year old, who played Allen’s son Randy on “Home Improvement,” will play a restaurant manager on “Last Man Standing.”

According to EW, Allen’s TV daughter, played by Amanda Fuller, will apply for a job at Thomas’ restaurant. Whether romance will ensue or not remains to be seen.

Back in September 2011 when EW asked Thomas if he’d make an appearance on the series, he said, “We’ll see about that. I’m sure they have a lot of stories they want to get to.”

Richard Karn, “Home Improvement’s” Al, joined Allen on a January episode of his “Last Man Standing.” While Zachery Bryan, who played Allen’s son Brad once upon a time, told CNN in June 2012 that he’d be interested to guest star at some point.

ABC’s “Last Man Standing” airs on Fridays at 8 p.m. ET.

    He's not that special people JTT looks weird to me- like not only has he emerged from being out of the spot light for 13 years but, he's also emerging from the basement after 13 years uhhhhh! Dude looks a little cray cray is all I'm saying.

    The real reason he left "Hollywood" was because of Home Improvement that whole College ordeal was a flat out LIE he left because he wanted to be a "Independent Actor" but when his movies flopped she forced College on him. The cast was happy they left the show all the hell they put everyone through. I'm not very interested in them sadly to say as they ruined a whole bunch of the HI experience for usa ll.

    Most of the time when we knew him we stayed as far away from him & his mom for our own protection he didn't get a chance to learn to socialize because his mom is so controlling. He couldn't bring friends to the set for tapings like the rest of them his mother suffers from "Narcissistic Sociopath Disorder" and she always has had a VERY sick control over him that explains why no-one knows who he dates he's that discreet. He's a recluse doesn't want to be bothered.

    He was never out going much he didn't get a chance to learn to socialize other than to speak adult to adults to further his career. He wasn't given a Childhood he wasn't allowed to play Legos with other Children.
    My best advice is to leave them alone people, the last thing ANY girl wants is Claudine as a mother in law. I'm serious she's sick. I'd hate to see any girls suffer by all means whoever or IF he ever gets married it will end in a nasty it sure (Divorce) as long as his mothers around forget about. It ended in a nasty Divorce with his mother.

    He's Mentally not okay and is damaged goods and has psychological issues and is depressed it's just sad. We just feel sorry for him and wish him the best we haven't seen nor talked to him since the HI reunion what was almost 3 years ago.

    The last episode of this show should end like the last "Newhart", where this show was all a dream, and he wakes up in bed with Jill as Tim "Tool Man" Taylor. Both series were on ABC, so it could work.

    • It's True!

      He's 31 in dog years, which means he's actually 217 in human years.

    He looks good looking here in this 2003 photo, but he looks differnt in the 2011 one. He's way short he's 5'2 5'3 in real life def NOT 5'6. He used to date this girl but she cheated on him & he used to be married to this other girl but has kept it from the press. I don't know if he's gay or not but I've heard that he hangs out at Sky bar & Club mood on accastion so I assume those are gay clubs. He's way quite to and is a recluse travels alot back to the East and West coasts quite often.

      My friends friends with him that's how I know & he's OKAY to be around. He's extremely short thou I've seen photos of my gf & him he is mostly 5'3 but she cheated on him with Joel when he was filming a tv show back in the 2000's. He's not that special & the CUTEST of guy anymore, he doesn't have kids & I know for a fact he is (Divorced) he's keeping it from the Press & uses his 'Privacy' as an excuse to hide stuff. He does wash his face four times a day to.I believe he's a depressed person that's why he travels
