TV "Home Improvement's" Patricia Richardson Answers Fans' Questions on Reddit AMA

"Home Improvement's" Patricia Richardson Drops Jonathan Taylor Thomas Dish in Nostalgic Reddit AMA
by Dominique Haikel
Feb 26, 2016



There are a lot of things we have to wonder about "Home Improvement" since it ended back in the day.

How are Jonathan Taylor Thomas and his gorgeous hair doing?
Will there ever be a reunion show?
Has she seen Tim Allen since his tool man days?



Lucky us, Patricia Richardson, answered those questions in a recent Reddit AMA. As you know, Patricia played Jill Taylor (best TV mom ever) on the show.

We've got the highlights, and, of course, the dish on what JTT has been up to since we all had his poster in our locker. Read on for some very interesting facts you may not have known about your favorite childhood show!







Did you feel a little "checked out" by the 7th season?

The show was getting tired. We were all getting tired, but we thought we could all squeak out one more year. Mostly I just missed having a life and my kids. I felt like I hadn't seen my family in years.





How did JTT cope with his fame?

I think that it was very fortunate that Jonathan is so smart and well balanced. When he left the show, he ended up going back to school and got a really good education and thought a lot about what he wanted to do with his life. When he was on the show at one point, he said to me he was interested in being a politician.

I can'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.





Do you still keep in touch with the cast?

I do stay in touch with Zach and Jonathan, who in fact have written a really wonderful pilot that is sort of R rated and are shopping it around town. Jonathan also directs "Last Man Standing", and I got to see him there.

Of course I've seen Tim. (In case you didn't know, Patricia had a guest spot on Tim Allen's current show, "Last Man Standing".)





Will there ever be a "Home Improvement" reunion?

There are no plans to do a reunion show at this point. Usually, those things don't work out very well.

Of course, we're missing Earl and that would make us all sad.





Do you have any backstage secrets that you can tell us about?

This is a little dirty story from the set... We had a live horse on the set for Tool Time. Well, they had this horse backstage, and we couldn't get it on the scene because we couldn't stop it from having an erection (it was ENORMOUS).

The guy who was supposed to be the wrangler for the horse kept hitting his erection with a brush. And everyone on set was yelling "Ah, don't do that." No one knew how to fix it so they could do the scene. There was a woman that had her period backstage and coincidentally when we moved her away from the horse it fixed the problem.

We were all on the floor laughing. And it made the wrangler stop abusing the horse.





What episode would you go back and film all over again?

That's a hard one. I'd chose the one I directed. Not because I'd direct it differently. It was the one where Wilson and Tim fight.

The idea of them fighting was my idea. I went into story meetings with Tim after every read through and before every season and worked with the writers on many of the stories. That was one of my favorite parts of doing the show. It was extremely collaborative.
