Richardson plays Helen Potts, a divorced neighbor of Allen's character, Mike. So how did the former Randy Taylor, aka the 33-year-old Thomas, end up in the episode, as well? Thomas came to the set to help promote the mini-reunion and the producers asked if he would step in to make a cameo. Lucky for Home Improvement fans, he did!

Jonathan Taylor Thomas, formerly of TV's Home Improvement, left Hollywood at the height of his career, a decision he's never second-guessed.

In the nearly a decade away from the limelight, he attended Harvard, Columbia and St. Andrew's University in Scotland, and relished his time as a student.

"To sit in a big library amongst books and students, that was pretty cool," says Thomas. "It was a novel experience for me."
