‘Last Man Standing’: Mike Tries to Explain Football to Foreign Exchange Student, Fails Miserably (Exclusive Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

On Friday’s new “Last Man Standing,” Mike Baxter is trying to bond with his family’s foreign exchange student, Jen — and immediately fumbles.

In a sneak peek from Episode 711, called “Common Ground,” which is exclusive to TheWrap, Mike (Tim Allen) and his daughter Eve (guest star Kaitlyn Dever) sit down to watch a game of American football with Jen (guest star Krista Marie Yu). Now, Mike is all too excited to answer any question Jen might have about the sport — until she starts inquiring about things he himself can’t make heads or tail of.

“Why do they wear those face masks? Is it so they don’t bite each other?” Yeah, Mike doesn’t know. Hmm, they seem to be using their hands more than their feet — why isn’t it call handball? He honestly has no idea.

The real kicker is when Jen asks Mike, “Mr. Baxter, does it help your team when you wear their blouses?” while gesturing at his Denver Broncos jersey. Not this year Jen, there’s no helping the Broncos now.

Here’s the official description for tonight’s episode: Mike struggles to find common ground with Jen, the Baxter’s new foreign exchange student, fearing she is being too polite with him. Meanwhile, Kyle and Chuck mess with Ed’s ancestry results.

Watch the exclusive clip above.

“Last Man Standing” airs Fridays at 8/7c on on FOX.

Tim Allen Says Original ‘Santa Clause’ Script Was ‘a Little Darker’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

To many, Tim Allen will always be Santa. But as it turns out, the original 1994 family film “The Santa Clause” was supposed to be “darker.”

“The original ‘Santa Clause’ is a little darker, written by two comedians, and I actually shot and killed Santa in the original movie,” the actor explained to Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday’s episode of “The Tonight Show.” “He fell off the roof because I thought he was a burglar.”

He added, “He gives me the card – the whole movie starts. The kid actually starts, ‘You just killed Santa.’ And I said, ‘He shouldn’t have been on the roof when he wasn’t invited.’”

Allen then explained that the head of Disney at the time, Jeffrey Katzenberg, told him that they can’t start a Disney movie with Allen killing Santa.

“I’m a comedian — why not? It’s funny,” he explained, adding that he said at the time, “You kill all the parents in all your other movies!”

What we got instead was Allen’s character Scott Calvin spooking Santa while he was getting ready to climb down the chimney, causing him to fall off the roof. After finding a card on Santa saying if anything should happen to him to put on the red suit, Allen becomes the next Santa.

“I’m literally the last guy in the world who should be Santa Claus because I don’t like kids all that much,” the actor joked. “I’m not going to hurt them, I don’t say inappropriate stuff, just don’t like them.”

Allen also starred in the franchise’s two sequels: “The Santa Clause 2” and “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.”

Key and Peele Reunite as Ducky and Bunny in New ‘Toy Story 4’ Teaser

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, or the comedy duo Key and Peele, have reunited in the latest teaser for Disney-Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” joining the film’s voice cast.

As cuddly carnival toys Ducky and Bunny in director Josh Cooley’s film, the two actually riff on their famous parking valet attendants characters in this latest teaser for the film, which also features the voices of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen as Woody and Buzz.

“You can’t go to infinity, dummy. It’s impossible,” Peele’s Bunny jokes about Buzz Lightyear’s famous catch phrase. “You don’t know nothing about science,” Key adds.

“Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who voice Ducky and Bunny, are two of the most brilliant minds I’ve ever seen,” director Josh Cooley said in a statement. “Of course, they are effortlessly funny, which would be enough. But they are incredible actors that understand story. Their improvs weren’t just for comedy sake, they were story motivated which elevated Ducky and Bunny and the film to a level I never could have expected.”

In “Toy Story 4,” Ducky and Bunny are carnival prizes who are eager to be won. But when their plans are rudely interrupted, they find themselves on an unexpected adventure with a group of toys who have no idea what it feels like to be tacked to a prize wall.

Key and Peele also join Tony Hale in the voice cast, who appeared as the reluctant new toy Forky in a teaser trailer that dropped yesterday.

“Toy Story 4” hits theaters on June 21, 2019. Watch the new teaser above.

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

“Last Man Standing” is still standing strong.

The sitcom’s Friday Fox premiere marked the network’s most-watched comedy in almost 7 years, excluding NFL nights.

Additionally, the Tim Allen show just enjoyed its highest-rated episode since the Season 2 premiere, which was on ABC. That was six years and five seasons ago.

So yeah, Fox won Friday in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic — and that’s the third-straight night the broadcaster can make that claim. Fox hasn’t pulled that off during a Fall TV premiere week since 2011.

Though Fox finished second to CBS in average primetime viewers last night, its 5.3 million haul marked Fox’s most-watched Friday with entertainment programming in more than 9 and-a-half years.

In other words, this whole resuscitation thing was a success.

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” returns to broadcast TV on Friday — just not on its original network. However, ABC’s presence will be felt on the Fox sitcom.

TheWrap found half-a-dozen instances of Episode 701 referencing the show’s days on Disney-owned airwaves, starting with the half-hour’s actual title, “Welcome Baxter.” Get it? Welcome back, Baxters? Cute.

Below are the other five mentions.

Baxter Banner
The Baxter household now has a big, colorful “Welcome Back!” banner hanging in the backdrop of the living room. The meta sign was storyline-intended for the return home of character Eve, played by Kaitlyn Dever, who was away at the Air Force Academy. But perhaps it also applies elsewhere.

“What did you think the banner was for, Kyle?” Vanessa Baxter (Nancy Travis) asks her son-in-law, played by Christoph Sanders, during an early back-and-forth.

Oh, THAT’S why.

Baxter Banter
Before that, there is the actual season-opening conversation. Readers may have caught some of this in teasers.

Kyle, frustrated, on the Baxter family couch: “I’m trying to get the DVR to record my favorite show but it’s not on.”

Vanessa: “Oh. Well maybe it got canceled. You know, the TV business can be a heartless bastard.”

Kyle: “Canceled? Why would they cancel a popular show that everybody loves?”

Mike (off-camera): “Maybe they’re a buncha idiots.”

Mike (entering for the first time): “Just try another channel.”

Vanessa: “Oh Mike. They don’t just take a show off of one network and put it on a different network.”

Kyle: “Hey, there it is! You were right Mr. B.”

They all watch Kyle’s show for a beat.

Mike: “Am I wrong or is it like way better on this network?”

Vanessa: “Way better, way better. I’ll be damned, I’ve never heard of this happening before.”

Mike, straight-to-camera: “Well, it’s pretty rare, but the show must have a lot of loyal, kickass fans, huh?”

Watch all of that opening-scene stuff here:

Mandy More
Something is different this time about Mandy, who is now played by Molly McCook after a recasting of Molly Ephraim’s role, and on-screen hubby Kyle simply cannot put his finger on it…

Kyle, to Mike: “Just a heads up, Mandy’s pretty mad at me right now. She changed something about herself and I can’t figure out what.”

For his part, Mike assures us he hasn’t changed a bit.

“No matter how long you haven’t seen me, I’m still the same old guy,” Allen said, referencing the show’s hiatus while setting the tone for another politically incorrect season.

Now We See It
Kyle and Mike finally do figure out what’s changed with Mandy — and it only took until the very last line of the episode’s story.

“I’ve got it! You’re taller and blonde!” Kyle suddenly declares out of nowhere.

“I’ll be damned,” Mike says before we cut to his weekly VLOG ending.

We Get It, You Had Decent Ratings and Were Canceled
Speaking of that VLOG, Allen and his writers used their first one on Fox to squeeze in a final shot at ABC.

“If nobody’s talking, then nobody’s listening. If nobody’s listening, nobody’s learning,” Mike warns viewers, referring to the country’s (and his TV family’s) toxic bipartisanship. “And if nobody’s learning, then good TV shows get canceled.”

Many fans believe it was Allen’s right-leaning politics that got “Last Man Standing” canceled in notoriously liberal Hollywood. ABC has denied that.

Well, it’s back now, and “Last Man Standing” now airs Fridays at 8/7c on Fox.

Paul Scheer’s ‘Galaxy Quest’ Show Is in a ‘Hold Pattern’ – But Will Be What ‘Force Awakens’ Is to ‘Star Wars’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Paul Scheer says his “Galaxy Quest” TV series will be “what ‘The Force Awakens’ is to ‘Star Wars.’” But he also says the project is “in a little bit of a hold pattern.”

Scheer, best known for “The League” and “The Disaster Artist,” spoke to us about “Galaxy Quest” near the end of our latest “Shoot This Now” podcast, which you can listen on Apple or right here.



Also Read: We’re Suckers for Paul Scheer’s Movie Pitch About Con Woman Bertha Heyman (Podcast)

Scheer said the firing of Paramount TV president Amy Powell has slowed the momentum on his update of the beloved 1999 sci-fi comedy, a meta “Star Trek” homage starring Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver. Amazon plans to stream Scheer’s new “Galaxy Quest” series, which comes from Gran Via Productions.

“We currently are in a little bit of a hold pattern because our executive at Paramount, Amy Powell, was fired for some insensitive comments,” Scheer said. (Powell has said the accusations against her are “baseless.”)

When it does lift off, Scheer’s planned update will honor not just “Star Trek” but “Star Wars.”

“We want to create this kind of thing that feels like this epic sequel, but a continuation. I compared it to what ‘The Force Awakens’ is to ‘Star Wars.’ It is continuing a story but bringing in new characters,” he said.

Scheer said he wants to create the same delight that “Galaxy Quest” brought him when he was a teen. As a young “Star Trek” fan, he appreciated that someone would so affectionately send up something he loved.

“One of my big fears is, what is so great about ‘Galaxy Quest’ is it’s a fish-out-of-water story, and I hate when you just go back to the same fish in the same pond. We need to kind of change it up,” he said.

“My pitch for ‘Galaxy Quest’ was, ‘How can we kind of blow this out and pay off things for the fans that love ‘Galaxy Quest,’ but more importantly — and the thing that I really wanted to do is — appeal to the ‘me’ of now. Who’s the 18-year-old version of me that loved ‘Galaxy Quest’ now? What would they want to see? Because I think that that is a movie that we haven’t really made yet: the ‘Tropic Thunder’ in the world of modern-day science fiction,” Scheer added. “When ‘Galaxy Quest’ came out, it was a niche thing, ‘Star Trek’ fandom is a niche thing. Now it is selling out Hall H in Comic-Con, so that’s kind of the impetus for the continuation.”

Scheer previously told IndieWire that his TV update of “Galaxy Quest” would mix two casts and acknowledge the triumphant rise of nerd culture since the original “Galaxy Quest” premiered nearly 20 years ago.

Scheer is one of the best and busiest comic minds in Hollywood. Besides “Galaxy Quest,” he’s also co-hosting the excellent “Unspooled” podcast, in which he and film critic Amy Nicholson revisit AFI’s top 100 films of all time. He also co-hosts “How Did This Get Made,” which examines films that will probably never make AFI’s top 100 list.

And he somehow found time to research and pitch an amazing idea for “Shoot This Now,” in which we talk about stories that should be made into movies or TV shows. His idea happens to be the best movie pitch we’ve ever heard on the podcast, so you may want to listen to the whole thing.

‘Last Man Standing’: Tim Allen Upset Clinton Lost to Trump Because He Couldn’t Tell ‘Pantsuit’ Jokes

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Tim Allen may be a supporter for president Donald Trump, but the “Last Man Standing” star said on Thursday there was one reason he was upset over Trump’s surprising victory. They had to throw away all their pantsuit jokes.

“We had a whole, we had a bank of stuff going on,” Allen said during the the revived comedy’s TCA panel, on how they were planning to address for not-to-be President Clinton. “Those of us in the comedy business went ‘shoot.’ Because of [Trump’s victory], we don’t have all that pantsuit stuff.”

But that doesn’t mean that the comedy leveled at the former Secretary of State’s expense would’ve been mean spirited. “Just the jokes that she would find funny,” he clarified, saying that the for comedians it’s important to not have too much of a partisan slant. “We want both sides to think it’s funny.”

Also Read: Tim Allen Says Roseanne Barr ‘Was the Most Diverse and Tolerant Woman I’ve Ever Known’

Allen was responding to a question about any story lines the show had to drop because of ABC’s decision to cancel the show. Allen was explaining that “Last Man Standing,” like most other shows, were planning for Clinton to win.

“We really had planned, like so many other people, that Mrs. Clinton would’ve been president.”

But don’t expect the Fox-version of “Last Man Standing” to comment on the person who actually resides in the White House. “I don’t think we’re going to comment specifically on Trump,” said showrunner Kevin Abbott.

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Tim Allen addressed the elephant in the room during the Television Critics Association press tour Thursday, revealing whether or not his “Last Man Standing” character does, in fact, support President Donald Trump. And his answer is kinda a yes and kinda . no, and was informed by “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston’s opinions on POTUS.

“Calm down, it’s a legitimate question,” the lead said to his co-stars and the show’s creators, when a reporter posed the query to the new Fox (former ABC) sitcom’s panel.

“I think the guy is kind of a centrist,” Allen said of Mike Baxter. “I think the best line I heard was actually from Cranston from ‘Breaking Bad,’ whatever discipline he is. The dude is flying the plane right now, there is really no reason to get him out of the pilot seat until we land. So this guy is a practical guy, I think. He owns a big business and as a help to his business he’s probably pro-Trump. He probably doesn’t defend him. I don’t know that it’s going to be, I think he’s going to be more of a centrist. Whatever’s good for his business and is good for the state of Colorado any policies he does, he’s going to go with.”

“I don’t think we’re going to comment specifically on Trump,” showrunner Kevin Abbott added, of the comedy’s upcoming first season on its new network/

“Oh, yes we will,” Allen said. “He wants us to!”

“I think we’re not going to comment specifically on Trump,” Abbott clarified. “I think that Mike Baxter is a conservative Republican. He holds those ideals. but the character himself I don’t think we’re going to address it one way or the other.”

When asked if he felt his own personal political beliefs may have had an affect on ABC’s decision to cancel “Last Man Standing,” (a move that happened pre-“Roseanne” reboot, and pre-“Roseanne” reboot cancellation) Allen said he didn’t think it was a politically-motivated move.

“I’ve said before, I’m not the character I play,” Allen said. “You want to know what I really believe, come see me at The Mirage in Las Vegas. You’ll be a little startled with what the comedian… who I am. The character I play, you know, Keanu Reeves didn’t murder 120 people in ‘John Wick.’ He’s not actually a killer. He may in fact be. I don’t know him personally,” he joked.

“What’s interesting to me, is that I like personally pissing people off,” Allen said, a statement about himself his fellow panelists emphatically confirmed to be true.

Also Read: Tim Allen Says Roseanne Barr ‘Was the Most Diverse and Tolerant Woman I’ve Ever Known’

“But I don’t think ABC — I’ve worked for ABC for years,” Allen continued. “I know these people, and if it was a political motivation to move that show, they certainly wouldn’t be dim enough to admit it or ever show that side of themselves. I don’t really believe that was — I think it was a financial decision on ABC’s part. I think it was too early… and we’re here because of it.”

ABC canceled Allen’s “Last Man Standing” in May 2017. A year later, Fox revived the Friday night sitcom. In June, ABC ordered a Barr-less version of “Roseanne,” which it is calling “The Conners.” That spinoff (of sorts) will debut this fall in the old “Roseanne” time slot, Tuesdays at 8/7c.

“Last Man Standing” star Tim Allen addressed Roseanne Barr being fired by ABC, saying at Fox’s TCA, “that’s not the Roseanne that I know.”

“You know, I go way back with Rosie and that’s not the Roseanne that I know,” Allen told reporters Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour. “I don’t know how– my mother and I went through this. She goes, ‘What did she mean by that?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know.’ She was the most diverse and tolerant woman I’ve ever known for a long time. So whatever got in her head isn’t the Roseanne that I know.”

Roseanne’s offenses that led up to her being let go from TV’s top comedy included a “Planet of the Apes” remark about ex-Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett.

“It’s a very icy time,” Allen said of the current climate in Hollywood and the media. “We’ve gone backwards. There are things you can’t say. There’s things you shouldn’t say. And I’ve said, ‘Well who makes up these rules?’ As a stand-up comic it’s a very dangerous position for md to be in because I like pushing buttons. We’re all very sensitive.”

Asked specifically if he believes ABC firing Barr was a fitting punishment for the crime, Allen responded, “They had to do what they’ve got to do.”

ABC canceled Allen’s “Last Man Standing” in May 2017. A year later, Fox revived the Friday night sitcom. In June, ABC ordered a Barr-less version of “Roseanne,” which it is calling “The Conners.” That spinoff (of sorts) will debut this fall in the old “Roseanne” time slot, Tuesdays at 8/7c.
