LOS ANGELES – Funny man Tim Allen celebrated the 100th episode on the set of his ABC show “The Last Man Standing” with cast and crew Tuesday.
Allen revealed to FOX411 what this historic 100th episode means to him.
“You know it will take me 24 hours and one of my brothers will tell me what it means,” the 62-year-old actor said. “Hollywood is like race car driving—the driver does literally the important part but there are so many people that got me here. It’s one day at a time here and I appreciate being in this business here. I miss all my ‘Home Improvement’ buddies, but now I have a family I love.”
“The Last Man Standing” premiered on ABC in 2011, and is the second successful sitcom Allen starred in for the network. Allen was on “Home Improvement” for nine years.
Allen also had some thoughts to share on GOP front-runner nominee Donald Trump.
“I think it’s funny because Donald Trump is kind of in the spirit of old Greek tyrants where they used to vote in a guy that had no encumbrances,” he said. “So the smartest thing about him, which is probably most overlooked, to me, is that he doesn’t owe anybody anything and if he would just stick to fixing the bridges, roads and infrastructures that’s what he knows how to do…just keep him doing that. He says a lot of stupid stuff but what he can do, he should do.”
Allen knows a thing of two about running things, as he both stars and serves as an executive producer on his "Last Man Standing." He spoke to the differences between him in real life and his character, Mike Baxter.
“I’m not as well worded because Mike Baxter can say this stuff quickly and funny,” he revealed. “I’m a little bit more philosophical. I had a philosophy major in college, so I’m always searching up river for how things started. I can be more excessive on either side. I can be really either left leaning or very very right leaning, but I end up center right. ”
The 100th episode of “The Last Man Standing” premieres on January 29th.
