Former Home Improvement star Zachery Bryan is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Carly Matros, PEOPLE has learned.

"They are thrilled and excited for the pending nuptials," his rep, Amanda Glazer, tells PEOPLE.

Bryan, 24, and Matros, 23, were close friends who had known each other since fifth grade but only began dating two years ago. They plan to marry next summer.

Bryan starred as Brad Taylor, the eldest of three sons on the Tim Allen sitcom Home Improvement. He landed the role in 1991 less than five weeks after he and his mother set out from their family home in Aurora, Colo., for Hollywood.

"Zach walked in the room and it just lit up," executive producer Carmen Finestra told PEOPLE at the time. The sitcom was on the air until 1999.

Bryan's next role is the lead in the ESPN film Codebreakers, which premieres Dec. 10. He's also filming Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift.
