Biografie von Tim Allen

Vom Häftling zum Komiker

Es ist schon fast zynisch, welche "Karriere" bereits hinter sich hatte, ehe er zur Schauspielerei kam. Geboren in Denver studierte er zunächst Fernsehproduktion in Michigan - eigentlich ein Garant für einen guten Start ins Film-Business. Dann aber wurde , der damals 25 Jahre alt war, mit mehr als 650 Gramm Kokain am Flughafen erwischt: sein Ticket ins Gefängnis. Tim Allen hatte Glück im Unglück: Statt der verordneten sieben Jahre saß er nur 28 Monate ein, nachdem er wichtige Informationen über andere Dealer weitergegeben hatte. Wer nun denkt, diese unschöne Episode habe seinem Image geschadet, liegt falsch. Kaum hatte er das Gefängnis verlassen, wurde er zum Stand-up-Comedian in Detroit und machte einige Agenten von Disney auf sich aufmerksam.

Tim Allen wird zu "Tim Taylor"

Wer kennt sie nicht, die 90er-Sitcom "Hör mal wer da hämmert"?! Für Tim Allen bedeutete sie das große Sprungbrett seiner Karriere. Die Serie wurde sogar um Allens Comedy herum konzipiert. Als "Tim 'The Toolman' Taylor" hämmerte er sich acht Jahre und 204 Folgen lang durchs Leben. Dass es nach dem Erfolg der Sitcom nur eine Frage der Zeit war, bis Allen auch auf der großen Kinoleinwand Berühmtheit erlangte, war von da an klar. Mit den beliebten "Santa Clause“-Filmen von Disney, seiner Rolle in "Galaxy Quest" oder "Born To Be Wild" hatte er einen festen Platz auf der Liste der bekanntesten Hollywood-Schauspieler.

Privat schraubt Allen auch gern

In seiner Freizeit agiert Tim Allen, der seit 2006 verheiratet ist und insgesamt zwei Kinder hat, übrigens auch gern mit Werkzeugen - er ist begnadeter Autotuner und hat außerdem ein großes Faible für Motorräder. NIcht immer leicht, wenn man in Los Angeles lebt: "Ich habe eine Ducati und eine Norton, ein britisches Modell. Ich stehe eher auf Sport-Motorräder, schon seit ich ganz jung war. Den Reiz an Harleys habe ich nie ganz verstanden, weil sie ja fast schon so groß sind wie ein Auto. Zwar sind sie bei Langstrecken recht komfortabel, aber im Stadtverkehr lassen sie sich kaum manövrieren."
