Zachery Ty Bryan -- who turned 30 on October 9 -- was born and raised in Aurora, Colorado. After finding success as a young model, Bryan and his family moved to Los Angeles in the late '80s so he could pursue an acting career. TV ads quickly came his way, and within a few years he had secured the role of dimwitted Brad Taylor, Tim and Jill's eldest son, on "Home Improvement." During his time on the sitcom, Bryan also appeared in other primetime shows, such as "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," and movies, including "First Kid." Unlike his TV brothers Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Taran Noah Smith, Bryan aggressively pursued acting after "Home Improvement," guest-starring in everything from "ER" to "Veronica Mars" to "Burn Notice." He also played Clay in the big-screen hit "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift." These days, the actor -- who married his wife, Carly, in 2007 -- keeps busy behind the scenes, running his own production company, Vision Entertainment Group.
