Zachery Ty Bryan
Zachery Ty Bryan played Thomas' older brother Brad on "Home Improvement" and like his TV-show brother, Bryan has stayed largely out of show biz. One of the first things he did after the sitcom ended was drop the Ty from his name. Since then, he has had numerous guest-starring roles on shows like "Burn Notice" and "Cold Case," but his real career is behind the camera.
In 2009, Bryan, 31, and his pal Adam Targum founded the production company Vision Entertainment Group Inc. The company is wrapping production on the horror film "Rogue River." Bryan credits "Home Improvement" for the success he has had in the film industry.
"'Home Improvement' was the key in the ignition that started the engine," Bryan told CNN earlier this year. "It not only was financially great for me and my family, but it was such a learning experience. ... I can sit in a meeting with someone twice my age and have close to the same experience. I've always looked at 'Home Improvement' and my early-age success as an opportunity to learn and be able to eventually put on this cap that I'm wearing now."
Bryan said he's not ruling out acting for the future but it's not his focus right now.
