Writing about someone who has not been in front of a camera for six years is not really my thing, but Jonathan Taylor Thomas is kind of an exception. This is a guy who left Home Improvement at the top of his teen fame and just walked away. Never really tried to do anything else and just went away, seemingly never to return. Well, after spending the past 13 years studying and finally graduating from Columbia last year, now Jonathan wants to act again and direct. Of course he wants to direct. Everyone comes back and wants to direct. The picture above was posted to Patricia Richardson's Twitter account at a Home Improvement reunion for Entertainment Weekly. The kids from this show had very different lives after the show.
I think I have written the most about Taran Noah Smith. He was the youngest sibling on the show. Lets see, when he was 12, his parents took money from his trust account and bought themselves a house under his name. At 17, he married someone who was almost double his age. Right after that he sued his parents and got access to his $1.5M trust fund. He then had a baby with his wife. They started selling vegan food out of the house and got shut down by the neighbors. He got divorced and he got his house foreclosed. Does anyone know if his food company Playhouse is doing any good?
Zachery Ty Bryan has tried to stay relevant and has tried to keep earning a living as an actor. I think his problem is that he still thinks he is a huge star so is not willing to take enough jobs like commercials to keep making a living and is waiting for that one big break again. Oh, he did get tased at a hotel in San Diego back in 2008. Apparently he was a registered guest, but when he came back in from buying a drink the hotel thought he was a homeless guy. They would not let him call his wife in the room and then tased him when he got upset. So, he sued them. He was arrested for DUI back in 2004 when police spotted him traveling at 100 m.p.h., pulled him over and arrested him for DUI.
