Zachery Ty Bryan

Brad Taylor was a mainstay on Home Improvement, but that did nothing to cement Zachery Ty Bryan’s fame. As he quickly learned, fame is fleeting.

It can be a challenge for child starts to spend a decade on a popular sitcom and then come out the other side with juicy roles and a new image. Bryan, at least, decided to make the most of his fame and then turn his back on Hollywood entirely.

Fox News reported that he retired in 2009, 10 years after his stint on TV. However, a part of that retirement could be because of how bad he was slammed by critics for his roles.

He has come out of retirement for small roles, which leads us to believe that he’s hanging on, but every time he does, he gets horrible reviews. It might be time to cash it in and enjoy his retirement for good.
