Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Of all the Taylor sons, Thomas, as middle son Randy, seemed most likely to succeed post-sitcom. He left the show a season early to pursue movie stardom, but after some initial success he has quickly faded from the up-and-coming list of Hollywood stars.
Earl Hindman. Though never fully revealed as the Taylor’s neighbor, Wilson, Hindman played the voice of reason and obscure wisdom from next door.

Earl died of Lung Cancer at the age of 61 on December 29, 2003.
