Tim Allen made his film debut in 1994, playing the historic holiday icon in the Walt Disney blockbuster hit The Santa Clause, earning him another Peoples Choice Award. He gave voice to the beloved, yet deluded space ranger Buzz Lightyear in the computer animated smash hit, Toy Story, and starred in Disneys Jungle 2 Jungle with Martin Short, and Universals For Richer or Poorer with Kirstie Alley. While the Taylor family was still at the top of the prime-time charts, Tim revisited his comedy roots with a successful national concert tour that finished with a sell-out performance at Caesars Palace, and found time to pen his first book about the male perspective, Dont Stand Too Close to a Naked Man, topping the New York Times Bestseller List. This was followed by his second bestseller Im Not Really Here focusing on midlife, family and quantum physics. In 1999, during the eighth and final season of Home Improvement, Tim was honored with the TV Guide Award for Favorite Actor in a Comedy Series, and in a tearful farewell, Tim hung up his tool belt, shifting his film career into high gear with resounding success. To the delight of moviegoers, Tim reprised his character, Buzz Lightyear in the Disney sequel, Toy Story 2 which grossed over $250 million to become the sixteenth highest film of all-time. This was followed by the popular Dreamworks film, Galaxy Quest where Tim portrayed the washed-up actor Jason Nesmith and his sci-fi alter ego Commander Peter Quincy Taggart, playing opposite Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman. Representing the average Joe, Tim starred in the 20th Century Fox picture, Joe Somebody opposite Jim Belushi, and in 2001 he partnered with Rene Russo in the Barry Sonnenfeld ensemble comedy Big Trouble. In 2002, with an interesting departure from playing mythical icons and the average everyman, Tim took on the role of Critical Jim, a professional hit man in the Paramount Classics comedy Who Is Cletis Tout opposite Christian Slater, and in November 2002, Tim helped kick off the holiday season, successfully reprising his role as 'the big man in red' in the long awaited sequel, The Santa Clause 2. In a brief return to television in April 2003, Tims old Tool Time pals, Debbe Dunning and Richard Karn, joined Tim on stage for the live event ABC special, Tim Allen Presents: A Users Guide to Home Improvement. In 2004, he starred opposite Jamie Lee Curtis in the Revolution Studios comedy Christmas with the Kranks. The film, directed by Joe Roth, was an adaptation of John Grishams best selling novel Skipping Christmas. Tim's latest achievement was starring in the popular ABC sitcom, Last Man Standing, for six seasons, from 2011-2017..
