A talented, intelligent actor, Jonathan Taylor Thomas became a star as the mischievous middle son Randy to Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor (Tim Allen) on "Home Improvement" (ABC, 1991-99). The breakout star of the hit series, Thomas was dubbed "JTT" by young fans and showered with kid-friendly plaudits, including a Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award. After lending his raspy voice to the young Simba in Disney's "The Lion King" (1994), Thomas toplined the kids vs. adults comedy "Man of the House" (1995), the Mark Twain adaptation "Tom and Huck" (1995), the adventure "Wild America" (1997) and the holiday comedy "I'll Be Home for Christmas" (1998). After leaving "Home Improvement" that same year, Thomas tackled grittier, more challenging roles in projects like "Speedway Junky" (1999). Thomas focused on his education and while he continued to make a handful of small appearances, including recurring roles on "Smallville" (The WB, 2001-06; The CW, 2006-2011) and "8 Simple Rules" (ABC, 2002-05), as well as providing voicework for "The Wild Thornberrys" (Nickelodeon, 1998-2004) and "The Simpsons" (Fox, 1989- ), Thomas seemed happier to remain out of the spotlight. Jonathan Taylor Thomas remained one of the most fondly regarded crushes of many viewers, leaving many to hope that he would one day launch his comeback as an adult.
