Jonathan Taylor Thomas left TV's "Home Improvement" to focus on school, but his fans can catch his familiar, family-oriented comedy skills in the Disney movie "I'll Be Home for Christmas." For a switch, though, the 17-year-old also took an unfamiliar casting as a tough street kid in "Speedway Junkie," a gritty indie coming next year with Gus Van Sant as executive producer.

Jonathan Taylor Thomas scarcely looks his 14 years. At 4-foot-11, the pixieish actor could pass for 10 or 11. Until he opens his mouth. Then you'd swear he was 45. He talks about narrow-mindedness and superficiality in the movie and television business as if he were a longtime Hollywood veteran. "It's kind of odd," Thomas said in an interview last week.

But when it comes time for the energetic, soon-to-be 13-year-old to take a break for an interview, Thomas manages to sit still for at least 20 minutes.

Jay Leno, minus his "Mr. Brain" routine and the amplified guffaws of "Tonight Show" bandleader Kevin Eubanks, did his darndest to joke it up with the best of them at the Starbright Foundation's celebration of "The Emperor's New Clothes," a just-published reinterpretation of the always-prescient fairy tale. However, with John Lithgow's funny hat-balance routine, Nathan Lane's theatrical bellows and Robin Williams' manic effluvia, Leno had his work cut out for him.
