The two former co-stars are hosting new game show ‘Assembly Required’ for the History Channel, and the project might be the closest fans get to a real-life edition of their fictional show within a show, ‘Tool Time’.

The pair are back together as hosts and executive producers alongside resident expert and DIY YouTuber April Wilkerson, as the show challenges builders across the US to “breathe new life into everyday household items in desperate need of fixing”.

Tim commented: ‘They say a longtime friend is someone who responds with, ‘This is by far your worst idea ever’…Fortunately, this was a great idea working with Richard.

“I loved those days doing Tool Time. We both share a great appreciation of people who can solve a problem not by talking about it, but by ‘doing’ it with creativity and amazing building skills. Plus it gives me more time to make fun of his fake beard.”

Detailing the show, the History Channel added: “This new series will push each contestant to their limits while testing their ability and ingenuity to not only rebuild it but to build

Tim Tadder Breaks Out With “Black Is a Color”

A master class in the use of color and form, photographer Tim Tadder’s latest series, “Black Is a Color” is also one of the great art names in recent memory. Its powerful and graphic fine art photography, now on view at the Avant Gallery at Hudson Yards in New York and the Brickell City Centre Miami, features real subjects with paint poured over their heads. It’s a bold blending of primary and secondary colors with a beautiful marbling effect for striking compositions that explore the value of truth, unity, and free-thinking in our current socio-political landscape. We let him explain. 


Interior Design: How did the idea for “Black is a Color” come about?

Tim Tadder: At the height of the BLM movement and post-George Floyd murder, I had spoken about the assault on freedoms, but I haven’t created anything that spoke to how I felt about systemic racism and social injustice, or the way society perceives race as a binary stem.   

I wanted to explore a non-literal and unconventional way to share with people a different point of view. A view that boldly illustrates a slice of what is missed by a binary approach to

Tim Allen pays tribute to Home Improvement character Wilson in Last Man Standing sneak peek

Tim Allen will honor a beloved character from his ’90s sitcom Home Improvement during the special Last Man Standing crossover episode airing Thursday night on Fox.

In the episode, titled “Dual Time,” Mike Baxter (Allen) has a tete-a-tete with Tim Taylor (also played by Allen), a home repairman who could be his twin. The Tool Man brings up Wilson, his former neighbor who only showed half his face peeking above the wooden fence that divided their properties during their many backyard conversations.

Wilson was portrayed by Earl Hindman across 202 Home Improvement episodes that aired between 1991 and 1999. The actor died of lung cancer in 2003, at 61.

In the exclusive clip above, Mike asks Tim, “Who was Wilson?”

“One of my neighbors, actually,” Tim replies. “For many, many years, I shared a lot of stuff with him. He passed away.” He later adds, “I miss Wilson. I miss a lot of stuff.”

Allen tells EW of the tribute, “Earl meant the world to me and everyone at Home Improvement. It was an organic moment to settle on, both on the set and in our hearts.”

Fox announced in October that

Last Man Standing Reveals How They Got Permission to Use Tim Allen’s Home Improvement Character

In an upcoming episode of Last Man Standing it will seem like Crisis on Infinite Sitcoms as Tim Allen meets Tim Allen. In the episode, Allen’s Last Man Standing character Mike Baxter will come face to face with Allen’s Home Improvement character Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor. It’s not the first time that the series has crossed paths with Allen’s ’90s sitcom, previously casting his Home Improvement co-stars Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Patricia Richardson, and Richard Karn in roles for the series. Though Last Man Standing and Home Improvement are all under the larger umbrella of The Walt Disney Company, it still took a lot of different entities to sign off on the idea for it to become a reality.

“The first hurdle you have to jump is to get Tim to sign off on it,”showrunner Kevin Abbott revealed to TheWrap, saying the idea came to them after Fox asked they conceive of a “big promotable event.” “I want to make sure that he wanted to play it — which he did, he fully embraced the idea, with the proviso that we would honor that character, not make fun of him or anything, which we would never do.” I really

How ‘Last Man Standing’ Got Permission to Use Tim Taylor Character

Fox’s “Last Man Standing” is going big in its final season, with an episode featuring Tim Allen in his leading role of Mike Baxter and reprising Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, the iconic character he played on ABC’s “Home Improvement” for eight seasons from 1991-1999.

The bit will come in the second episode of “Last Man Standing’s” upcoming ninth season, when Vanessa hires a home improvement repairman who bears an uncanny resemblance to Mike, who is struggling with an idea for his Outdoor Man 10th Anniversary vlog. And the idea for this epic half-hour, which airs Jan. 7 on Fox, came about because the broadcast network wanted to kick off the sitcom’s final season with something flashy.

“We had already broken the first seven episodes and our intention was to have the ‘Time Flies’ [flash-forward] be the first episode. And Fox came to us and said, ‘We’d love it if you could come up with some big promotable event.’ And I always hate that, especially on this show, where we tell smaller stories about family interaction,” “Last Man Standing” showrunner Kevin Abbott told TheWrap. “Plus, it’s difficult to come up with some huge promotable event that happens in our little

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor said that he got emotional when he recalled the 2003 death of former co-star Earl Hindman, who starred as the Taylors’ neighbor Wilson W. Wilson on Home Improvement.


“It was challenging for me to do both parts and kind of emotional. I adored [Earl Hindman] and we kind of brought that up in the story,” the beloved actor shared.


“I started thinking about all the history I had with that TV show, how I compare it to my life on this show. It’s all about loss, is all I kept saying in that episode.”

Tim Allen Reveals He Got Emotional Reprising His ‘Home Improvement’ Role on ‘Last Man Standing’ (Exclusive)

Tim Allen‘s return to a past character was not what he expected. ET’s Lauren Zima spoke with Allen and his Last Man Standing co-star, Nancy Travis, ahead of the ninth and final season premiere of their Fox sitcom.

During the chat, Allen opened up about playing both his current role and a past role — Home Improvement‘s Tim Taylor — on an upcoming episode of Last Man Standing, an experience the 67-year-old actor called “weird, creepy… [and] unusual.” 

“It was very peculiar to do both parts, I’ll tell you that. It was challenging for me to do both parts and kind of emotional,” Allen admitted, revealing that his emotions came, in large part, because of Earl Hindman’s 2003 death. Allen and Hindman co-starred on Home Improvement from 1991 to 1999, with the later actor playing Wilson, Allen’s onscreen neighbor.

“I adored the man and we kind of brought that up in the story,” Allen said. “I started thinking about all the history I had with that TV show, how I compare it to my life on this show. It’s all about
