Whatever happened to… Jonathan Taylor Thomas?

Posted: December 2, 2009 in tv shows, what ever happened to
Tags: , , ,

So, my housemates and I were just chatting tonight, as we were watching TV, and for some reason JTT came up. I suddenly thought, whatever happened to that guy? So in true Big Cheese style, I thought I would try to find out, and let all you guys know.

After all, he was quite the teen sensation. First that cute kid in Home Improvement, then that cute teenager in Home Improvement. Then he was the voice of Young Simba in The Lion King. (He was only the speaking voice, of course. The singing voice was actually Jason Weaver, who played the young Michael Jackson in The Jackson Five: An American Dream. Now there’s a fact for you!)

Anyway, the last time I remember seeing JTT was in 8 Simple Rules (for Dating My Teenage Daughter). But he was only in it for 3 episodes, back in 2004. So what happened to him after that?

Well, he was in 1 episode of Verocica Mars in 2005, did bit parts, or voice roles in a couple of films, and that’s all it says on his CV!

I can tell you that between Home Improvement and Veronica Mars, he attended Harvard University, and took on a couple of film roles where he played gay characters, which lead to rumours that he was gay himself. He denied these rumours in Advocate, a gay and lesbian magazine, and in this Jay Leno interview in 1998.

As for where he is now…? I’d love to know. I mean he’s only 28! He could yet pull a Doogie Howser on us all….
