Here's What's Been Going on With Jtt Since His Teen Heartthrob Days
Every so often, we take a second to reflect on our celebrity crushes of yore, from boy band members to cute TV actors, and wonder: what the hell happened to them? An adorable heartthrob named Jonathan Taylor Thomas (affectionately known as Jtt) had a heyday in the '90s, taking over the covers of teenybopper magazines and making us swoon each week as Randy Taylor on the ABC sitcom Home Improvement. Between 1991 and 1999, Jtt's cute little face and floppy middle-parted hair was also featured in big-screen classics like Man of the House, Tom and Huck, Wild America, and I'll Be Home For Christmas, and he also lent his voice to Disney's The Lion King as young Simba. After a smooth run of success, Jonathan Taylor Thomas seemingly disappeared. Poof! In 2013, Jonathan opened up about his decision to leave the spotlight, telling People that he had "been going nonstop since I was 8 years old,

21 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 1990s

The 1990s: a time when Sleepwalkers, Burt Reynolds, No Escape, Chevy Chase and F/X/2 could top the Us box office...

By the 1990s, studios were waking up to movie marketing, and the era of the blockbuster. Tim Burton's Batman, released in summer 1989, had introduced the idea of a big opening weekend, and modern movies now target their promotional work to get just that. As such, it's harder and harder for smaller films to snare the top slot at the Us box office, even for one weekend.

In the 1990s, particularly the first half of the 1990s, that wasn't so much the case though. In fact, many films that have long since fallen from the public conscious topped the chart. And in this piece, I've tried to capture some of them.

Chevy Chase leaves Community

Deadline has revealed that Chevy Chase has parted ways with NBC's cult comedy series Community by mutual consent, bringing to an end a difficult three-and-a-half year collaboration that saw the actor clashing with the show's producers on numerous occasions. Chase, who portrays the character of Pierce Hawthorne, will leave the show immediately, having already completed the bulk of filming for the fourth season.

Considering the recent history between Chase and the show's producers (not to mention his notoriously difficult behaviour), the actor's departure comes as little surprise. Last year, he was involved in a public spat with Community creator and former showrunner Dan Harmon, while he also threatened to leave the show following the conclusion of season three. Chase has panned the show on multiple occasions recently and just last month he was said to have dropped the N-word during the latest in an ongoing series of on set tirades.

On Sunday night during the "In Memoriam" segment of the Oscars telecast, a number of Hollywood's finest were remembered, including Michael Jackson, Patrick Swayze, Brittany Murphy and Ron Silver. But fans were quick to point out that "Charlie's Angels" star Farrah Fawcett was not included in the montage.

Fawcett's longtime partner, Ryan O'Neal, told People magazine in a statement, "There is no comment other than we were disappointed that she was not included."
