On Tuesday evening, actor Tim Allen revealed that he and his friend, comedian and late-night host Jay Leno, are working on a show together.
The former Home Improvement star shared a sneak peek of the episode the two friends are collaborating on. The pair have worked together on multiple occasions. Most recently, Leno made a guest appearance on Allen’s show Last Man Standing. Additionally, Allen has joined Leno as a guest on the Tonight Show and was also his guest on Jay Leno’s Garage.
The actor posted a photo from an airplane hangar with two Air Force jets in view. Specifically, Allen and Leno used Edwards Air Force base in Edwards, California as the location for their unknown project. Allen shared the photo and said he was “in heaven” being around the impressive aircraft. In addition, he called the Air Force personnel on base “truly inspiring.”
“Doing a show with pal of mine Jay Leno at Edward’s Air Force base,” Tim Allen wrote on Twitter. “I am in heaven in the company of machines men and women who are truly inspiring.”
Leno and Allen are both well-known gearheads, and their love of automobiles and anything else with an engine is obvious. Each of the two Hollywood stars has incorporated their passion for machines into almost all of their work. It looks like that trend will continue with Tim Allen and Jay Leno’s upcoming project.
Tim Allen’s Recent Podcast Comments Go Viral
Early last week, Tim Allen made headlines after his appearance on a popular podcast for his comments about former President Donald Trump.
Allen’s comments went viral after speaking to comedian Marc Maron on his WTF podcast. He told Maron he actually enjoyed that Trump made people mad. The Last Man Standing star also explained why he leans towards the Republican Party.
“Once I realized that the last president pissed people off, I kind of liked that,” Allen said. “So it was fun to just not say anything. Didn’t join in the lynching crowd.”
The Santa Clause star says he hates paying taxes, so he’s a fiscal conservative as a result. Allen also mentioned that he dislikes not knowing how his taxes are used when the government takes half his income.
In 2017, Allen attended Trump’s presidential inauguration. Following the event, he compared his experiences in Hollywood as a conservative to living in 1930s Nazi Germany. Unsurprisingly his comments didn’t go over too well with the public and led to some backlash. However, Maron wanted to know how Allen minimized the backlash for his conservative views.
“I literally don’t preach anything,” Tim Allen explained. “What I’ve done is just not joined into, as I call it, the ‘we culture.’ I’m not telling anybody else how to live. I don’t like that, ‘we should do this’ or, ‘we should do that.’”
Although Allen leans right politically, he said he’s friendly with Democratic leaders Bill and Hillary Clinton. But he didn’t vote for Hillary in 2016 since he didn’t believe she “should have been president.”
“In the end, you go the other direction,” Allen said. “There’s nothing personal about it. If you don’t like it then wait ’til the next election.”
