He also has a neighbor named Wilson (Earl Hindman) who only shows half of his face in every episode for which he is always there for Tim and his family when they are in trouble.
Like "Boy Meets World," I admire this family show until during later seasons, most of the characters got annoying; Jill decides to go back to school, Randy became a pompous know-it-all, Mark had issues and Brad was just himself throughout the show.
How are Jonathan Taylor Thomas and his gorgeous hair doing? As you know, Patricia played Jill Taylor (best TV mom ever) on the show.
Lucky us, Patricia Richardson, answered those questions in a recent Reddit AMA.
This included Richard Karn as hefty sidekick Al, now upgraded to regular status in the opening credits, which were only altered as slightly as necessary.
One Redditor asked if she was feeling a little "checked out" by the 7th season. "We were all getting tired, but we thought we could all squeak out one more year. I felt like I hadn't seen my family in years." Aww! When he was on the show at one point, he said to me he was interested in being a politician."Interesting! Richardson went on to say, "Ican't speak for Jonathan if he was uncomfortable with fame like I was but we both coincidentally withdrew from the industry right after the show.
I was trying to find a way to be just an actor instead of big celebrity as well as I wasn't a fan of doing press, red carpets, etc."One Redditor asked what we were all dying to know.
When he's not on-air with sidekicks Al Boorland (Richard Karn) and buxom "Tooltime Girl" Lisa (Pamela Anderson), Tim has his hands full running interference for his rowdy family, which includes wife Jill (Patricia Richardson) and sons Brad, Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas) and Mark.
Goofy handyman Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor (Tim Allen) supes up his lawnmower for a race against Bob Vila in Season 2 of the hilarious sitcom.
when Jonathan Taylor Thomas was a guest star on "Last Man Standing" ... But Patricia Richardson -- who played Jill Taylor on the show -- told us a full-on reunion show is a complete impossibility because one key element is missing -- the neighbor guy Wilson, played by actor Earl Hindman.
