Jonathan Taylor Thomas was one of the biggest teenage heartthrobs of the 90s, thanks to his role as the mischievous middle son Randy in the hit TV show Home Improvement. But before he became a household name, Thomas had already made a name for himself in the entertainment industry. He had appeared in two 1974 thrillers, The Taking of Pelham One Two Three and The Parallax View, as well as Who Killed Mary What's 'Er Name? (197), Greased Lightning (197), The Brink's Job (197), Taps (198), and Murder in Coweta County (198). He also played the role of J.
T. in Lawrence Kasdan's film Silverado (198).Thomas was only seven years old when he joined the cast of Home Improvement, and he stayed with the show until he was sixteen. After that, he never returned to work as an actor. During his time on the show, Thomas also starred in The Lion King (199) as Young Simba, Tom and Huck (199) as Tom Sawyer, and the title character of Pinocchio (199).The comedy series Home Improvement was about a family man who hosted his own home improvement program called Tool Time.
It became one of the most-watched series of the 90s. One of the show's characters was Wilson W Wilson Jr., a nosy neighbor whose face was always hidden by a fence. This role was played by Earl DuBois, a character actor who had a long career and appeared in two episodes of Home Improvement. Unfortunately, Jonathan Taylor Thomas left Home Improvement in the middle of season eight to go to a study abroad program. He never returned to acting after that, but his legacy lives on in the hearts of fans who grew up watching him on TV.
