Tim Allen

  1. John Candy, Splash, 1983.     Up for Tom Hanks’ brother in the mermaid movie. Allen was a stand-up at the time. He didn’t make his film debut until 1988 - as Baggage Handler in Tropical Snow - long before his 90s’ series fame. Allen and Hanks later voiced Buzz Lightyear and cowboy Woody in the Toy Story toons.
  2. Robin Williams, Flubber, 1997.     Disney's re-make of the 1961 Fred MacMurray film was among offers to keep Buzz Lightyear in the fold,
  3. Mike Myers, The Cat in  the Hat, 2003.     Allen was already stuck in the make-up of Santa Clause 2. Hence, Myers was nominated for Worst Actor at the 2004 Razzie awards.
  4. Adam Godley, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, 2004.     Among 20 TV dads up for Mr Teavee. Allen was Tim Taylor in Home Improvement, 1991-1999. Also in the mix: James Belushi, Dan Castellaneta, Ed O’Neill, Ray Romano, Bob Saget and Kurtwood Smith. Godley was a huge 1998 hit as Kenneth Williams in London’s behind-the-Carry-On-scenes play, Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick.
  5. Jason Lee, Alvin and the Chipmunks, 2006.     For some reason all the A List - Allen, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, John Travolta - edged away from being Dave Seville - the chipmunks’ adoptive father, songwriter and supplier of that  iconic yell: Allvviinn!!
