Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This strapping blond, blue-eyed all-American boy-next-door literally grew up on TV playing Brad Taylor, the oldest son, on ABC's hit sitcom "Home Improvement" (1991-99). Zachery Ty Bryan began his career at age 5 in local commercials in his native Colorado. After appearing in national campaigns for Ralph Lauren and Burger King, he landed his first acting role in the NBC movie "Crash: The Mystery of Flight 501" (1990). Bryan is an avid soccer player and his athletic ability garnered him appearances as an acrobat on CBS' "Circus of the Stars." He made his feature debut as a bully who torments the president's son in the middling comedy "First Kid" (1996) and later played a high school football hero in "Carrie 2: The Rage" (1999).
