Jonathan Taylor Thomas was the end-all and be-all of 90s teen idols. As the star of a popular sitcom and unforgettable movies, he was one of the biggest heartthrobs of all time. But then as his star was about to go supernova, he stepped out of the spotlight.
Thomas was born Jonathan Taylor Weiss on September 8, 1981 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and shortly thereafter he moved to Sacramento, California, where he enjoyed an idyllic childhood full of outdoor adventures. As he told The Morning Call in 1996,
"I've always been this fly-fishing nut. It's my favorite thing to do — to stand in a stream in the middle of nowhere and cast out my line."
It wasn't long before this simple fishing nut turned into a major star. He moved to Los Angeles with his mom and brother, changed his last name to his brother's middle name of Thomas, and started booking roles. His first big part came in 1990 in the form of Kevin Brady on the Brady Bunch sequel series The Bradys. That was followed by an infamous In Living Color sketch in which he played Macaulay Culkin attempting to keep a nefarious Michael Jackson out of his home. In 1991, he landed the role of a lifetime as one of the sons on the ABC sitcom Home Improvement. He was only 10 when he started playing Randy Taylor, and his performance ensured that the mischievous yet good-natured middle child would be a fan favorite across America.
