Personal Quote:

(Commenting on the death of his mother, who succumbed to cancer in 1983): "I thought my parents were invincible. It never occurred to me she would die."


Was not the original actor chosen to be Al on Home Improvement. Strphen Tobolowsky was originally cast and Richard filled in as a favor to the directors in the pilot when Stephen wasn't available. Once Stephen decided to pursue a movie career Richard agreed to stay on as Al. See more »
