It looks like “Home Improvement” is coming to “Last Man Standing” again. Jonathan Taylor Thomas, who played middle son Randy on the 1990s sitcom, will guest-star in an upcoming episode of Tim Allen‘s new comedy.

Allen’s Friday night sitcom has previously welcomed Richard Karn (a.k.a. Al Borland) in a “Tool Time” reunoin.

Thomas will appear on an episode scheduled for March or April of this year and will play the manager of a fancy restaurant where Kristin Baxter (Amanda Fuller) applies to work, according to As of now, the actor will appear only in the one episode, but there of course there is always a possibility and hope of a recurring part.

Once a beloved tween icon, Jonathan Taylor Thomas has mostly vanished from acting in the past several years. Other than a few small bits in short films and animation, Thomas’ last television appearance was in 2005, when he played an undercover cop on an episode of “Veronica Mars.”

Despite the hiatus from acting, there have been indications that Thomas might return at some point. In September of 2011, he told Entertainment Weekly that he was considering a behind-the camera role in television and had not ruled out acting altogether.

It now sounds like JTT, the boy who once voiced Simba in “The Lion King,” is ready to may his triumphant return

“Last Man Standing” airs Fridays at 8pm on ABC.
