Comedian Tim Allen, star of the hit sitcom "Home improvement" and the voice of Buzz Lightyear in the "Toy Story" animated films, talks with correspondent Tracy Smith about the difficult past (including the loss of his father to a drunk driver) that led to a stellar standup career; the struggles with addiction problems that almost ended it all; and the happiness of being sober for more than 20 years.

Tim Allen has brought such joy to my eyes as Tim the "Tool-Man" Taylor, Scott Calvin, the Santa Clause, Luther the Skipping Christmas man, Dave the Shaggy Dog, Mike the Last Man Standing, and most of all Buzz Lightyear. May he and his family live long together, for infinity and beyond. God Bless.

Tim Allen really deserve his fame and materialistic objects because he earned it from pure talent and he has brought us so many laughs and memories. His talent and kindness is more than money is worth and that is the legacy he leaves. If only we can continue this legacy for the next generation, that would be wonderful. Thanks for everything Tim and we wish you well. You have taught us that it is not just about the money.

5:50 His latest show, "Last Man Standing," is on Fox. Like Allen himself, his character, Mike Baxter has "conservative" views, a rare bird, indeed, in Hollywood. Tracy Smith: You describe Mike on "Last Man Standing" as an "educated Archie Bunker." You like to push people's buttons on that show? Tim Allen: I dressed up as Trump, then, all of a sudden we're "Trump supporters." Cause we just, we didn't take a shot at him. So I now says, wait a minute! They think we're Trump supporters; this might be kinda fun! So then we started pokin' THAT button... and especially in the People's Republic of California, if, if you don't think one way, then you are immediately labeled a million different things. I said, this is gonna be fun! Allen is implying that he is NOT a Trump supporter by saying this, when clearly by calling California "The People's Republic," his agenda is clear. He also is attempting to suggest the show is the impetus for the action, distancing himself and his own beliefs from it. I just think it's weird that he's trying to downplay his support while maintaining his views.Or maybe that's the educated part of an "educated Archie Bunker?"

Home improvement, last man standing, toy story, Santa Claus.... he’s an amazing actor. I had no idea of his past. He has persevered and prevailed for sure.
