This time of year, Tim Allen fans are used to seeing the actor in red and white. But is the 70-year-old actor ready to swap his Santa suit for a familiar tool belt? In a new interview, Tim explained it’s not out of the question.
Tim is currently starring in season 2 of The Santa Clauses on Disney+, but before he portrayed the Jolly Old Elf, the actor spent eight years on network television as Tim “The Toolman” Taylor on Home Improvement. The beloved sitcom wrapped in 1999, but it still holds a nostalgic spot in fans’ hearts.
In a recent interview with The Messenger, Tim addressed the possibility of a reboot. He said, “I see Richard Karn [who played Al Borland] a lot. And I talk to the boys [Zachery Ty Bryan, who played Brad; Jonathan Taylor Thomas, who played Randy; and Taran Noah Smith, who played Mark]…and I’m there as one of their friends. We keep talking about [a spinoff].”
Tim continued with an idea for the reboot: “It’s funny, one of the conversations we’ve had recently is how weird it would be if Home Improvement would be about the kids’ kids. Like if all of them had children, and I’m a grandparent. Home Re-Improvement or something like that. It’s come up.”
