THE SHAGGY DOG

TIM ALLEN (Dave Douglas, Producer) honed his talents as a stand-up comic throughout the 1980s, providing the perfect lead-in to his highly successful ABC television series, "Home Improvement,” where he garnered a Golden Globe® award and an Emmy® nomination, and was honored with the People's Choice Award for Favorite Male Performer in a Television Series for an unprecedented eight years in a row. While passionately ensconced in his sitcom, Allen still found time to expand his talents.

He made his film debut in 1994, playing the historic holiday icon in the Walt Disney blockbuster "The Santa Clause,” earning him another People's Choice Award. He gave voice to the beloved yet deluded space ranger Buzz Lightyear in the computer-animated smash hit "Toy Story,” as well as starring in "Jungle 2 Jungle” with Martin Short and "For Richer or Poorer” with Kirstie Alley.

While "Home Improvement” was still at the top of the prime-time charts, Allen revisited his comedy roots with a successful national concert tour that finished with a sell-out performance at Caesars Palace and found time to publish his first book, Don't Stand Too Close to a Naked Man, topping the New York Times Best Seller List. This was followed by his second bestseller, I'm Not Really Here, focusing on midlife, family and quantum physics. In 1999, during the eighth and final season of "Home Improvement,” Allen was honored with the TV Guide Award for Favorite Actor in a Comedy Series. After a tearful farewell, Allen hung up his tool belt, shifting his film career into high gear.

To the delight of moviegoers, Allen reprised his character Buzz Lightyear in the Disney sequel "Toy Story 2,” which grossed over $250 million. This was followed by the popular "Galaxy Quest,” opposite Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman; "Joe Somebody,” opposite Jim Belushi; and the Barry Sonnenfeld ensemble comedy "Big Trouble,” in which he was partnered with Rene Russo. In 2002, he made a departure with black comedy, "Who Is Cletis Tout?,” opposite Christian Slater. He then helped kick off the holiday season, reprising his popular role in "The Santa Clause 2.”

In a brief return to television in April 2003, Allen's old Tool Time pals, Debbe Dunning and Richard Karn, joined Allen on stage for the live ABC special "Tim Allen Presents: A User's Guide to Home Improvement.”

Allen was most recently seen in the 2004 Christmas comedy "Christmas with the Kranks,” also starring Jamie Lee Curtis for Revolution Pictures. He will next be seen in "Zoom” and "The Santa Clause 3.”
