Tim Allen Stages Mini 'Home Improvement' Reunion


No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you! It's 2013 and Tim Allen is once again sharing the small screen with his old Tool Time sidekick Richard Karn. 

For the first time in over a decade, the Home Improvement stars are reuniting and ET was there as Tim and Richard slipped comfortably back into their chummy Tim and Al days while filming an episode of Last Man Standing.

"It's almost [as if] I'd rather be doing Tool Time… When we get together, I miss doing that show," admits the 59-year–old comic who, adorably, spent much of the interview joshing with Richard.

The episode, airing tonight, casts Richard as a star architect (and Tim's close friend) competing for a job opposite a hot, female colleague preferred by Tim's TV wife, Nancy Travis.

Though Richard's appearance is brief, Tim promises viewers will see more of the dynamic duo.

"I didn't want to get into this if it wasn't something [long term]," says Tim of wrangling his old co-star, a now-dedicated theater actor, back to television.
