Just like the character he plays in The Adventures Of Pinocchio, Jonathan learned to never tell a lie!
With so many movie roles to choose from but only a few weeks every year to star in projects other than his TV series Home Improvement, 15-year-old Jonathan Taylor Thomas has to be very picky about the films he makes.

December 24th – JTT’s animal attraction
The star of Home Improvement and Man of the House is not only partial to the animal kingdom, he’s also protective of it.
