Diehard fans of Last Man Standing, you might want to look away. This new pic of Tim Allen and Héctor Elizondo is a bit emotional.
One of America’s most-beloved sit-coms is coming to an end, and is on its retirement tour. With a total of nine seasons and countless laughs, Last Man Standing will go down as one of the great sit-coms of the past decade.
In hindsight, that makes perfect sense. Tim Allen is an icon in every sense of the word, and his work on other sit-com classics like Home Improvement was always going to be a good omen.
But even good things come to an end, as the Last Man Standing official twitter account is sadly reminding us.
“Last men standing. #lastmanstanding,” the account briefly captions. As they say, a picture says a 1000 words, so there’s not much to add.
It’s worth point out, as fans in the comments of the post do, that the two men are, in fact, sitting. Whether that’s for comedic effect or not is unclear, but if it is, that’s a classic joke.
The dynamic duo of Mike Baxter and Ed Alzate, as well as the crew at “Outdoor Man” in general. Their journey of work and hijinks has created near-10 years of classic television.
The final episode of Last Man Standing will air on Thursday, May 20 of this year.
Last Man Standing Star Tim Allen Praises Tyler Perry
Another icon of entertainment, Tyler Perry, addressed the crowd at the 2021 Oscars with a speech about acceptance, and Tim Allen thinks very highly of it. Perry was being honored with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.
While he called for deeper thought and the acceptance of minorities and all people, he also mentioned the need for patience and understanding.
“In this time, with all of the internet and social media and algorithms that want us to think a certain way (in the) the 24-hour news cycle,” Perry said. “It’s my hope that we teach our kids, refuse hate. Don’t hate anybody.
“I refuse to hate someone because they’re Mexican or because they are black or white. Or LGBTQ. I refuse to hate someone because they’re a police officer or because they’re Asian. I would hope we would refuse hit hate. And I want to take this humanitarian award and dedicate it to anyone who wants to stand in the middle. Because that’s where healing, where conversation, where change happens. It happens in the middle. Anyone who wants to meet me in the middle to refuse hate and blanket judgment, this one is for you, too.”
Tim Allen didn’t necessarily have much to say about the speech, but what he did was glowing. And, of course, in the cadence that one expects from the Last Man Standing star.
