Jonathan Taylor Thomas Wiki Biography

Jonathan Taylor Thomas was born on 8 September 1981, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania USA, of part-Portuguese and US Dutch/German ancestry, and also known as JTT, Jonathan Weiss and Jon, is an actor who is today considered to be a former idol of teenagers and children, mostly thanks to his role in the early ’90s American TV sitcom “Home Improvement” created by David McFadzean, Carmen Finestra and Matt Williams

So how rich is J. T. Thomas, as of late 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that JTT has a net worth of over $20 million, good going considering that he received just $600 for his role in the Disney movie production  “Tom and Huck” in 1995, appearing together with Brad Renfro.

JTT’s parents Claudine- a social worker and personnel manager – and Stephen Weiss, a sales manager, divorced when he was 11, however, his education didn’t suffer, as he matriculated from Chaminade College Preparatory School in West Hills, California, then enrolled at Harvard University to  study philosophy and history, spending his third year  at St Andrews University in Scotland, then graduating in 2010 from the Columbia University School of General Studies.

Of course he was already into acting – his most famous role in the movie “Home Improvement” he got when Jonathan was only 10 years old, showing himself a very capable actor, and staying in the show until 1998,  finally deciding to leave to spend more time studying, at which point he attended Harvard University.

About the time when Joy was beginning his career and starting to raise his net worth, he was also offered the voice-over of lion Simba in the popular animation “The Lion King”. Of course, this was just a great success for a young actor, and furthermore, the role of Simba added more to the total JTT’s net worth. After this auspicious beginning Thomas went on to voicing more animation characters, being involved in acting or with voice-overs in such popular films as “The Adventures of Pinocchio”, “Thru the Moebius Strip”, “Walking Across Egypt”, “Man of the House”, “I’ll Be Home for Chrstmas” and “Pom Poko”. JTT’s net worth also increased even more after 1996, when the video game “The Adventures of Pinocchio” was released – Jonathan was invited to voice Pinocchio for this production too.

Jonathan Taylor Thomas has continued to increase his net worth mainly as a favorite actor among kids of different ages, and moreover, he was also nominated many times for his performances, from as early as 1993, when he was nominated for Best Young Actor by Young Artist Awards. Unfortunately, he was not the one who won, however, one year afterwards he received this same award thanks to his role in “Home Improvement”.

In 2013 he started appearing in another American sitcom, called “Last Man Standing”, in which he plays John Baker, and which ran through 2015, however, his last notable role in a movie was in the short film “The Extra” released in year 2006. It looks like the biggest success of JTT was in his young age, but who knows, maybe after some time he will rise to fame again.

In his personal life, JTT is apparently still single – there aren’t even any rumours of romantic associations, yet! He has been able to earn friendship from PETA, as he has been a vegetarian for many years. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

And I'm sure it was validated by my recent roles.
