How did Tim Allen become the voice of Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story movies ?

Up until then, Tim Allen was only known as Tim "The Toolman" Taylor from Home Improvement and he played Santa Claus in the movie The Santa Clause but how did he go from that to Buzz Lightyear ?

    You act as if those aren't any big deal.

    Allen's show Home Improvement was usually in the Top 5 shows throughout its entire 8-year run. The Santa Clause movie did extremely well. In addition, Allen was a successful stand-up comic and author.

    In fact, there was one week where Tim Allen had the #1 rated TV show, #1 selling movie and #1 selling book.

    I think that's worthwhile enough to earn him the Buzz Lightyear role.

    Because he was the only person suitable enough for the role of Buzz Lightyear

    Since he did Tim Taylor on Home Improvement and Scott Calvin/Santa Claus in The Santa Clause and its two sequels.

    Maybe he auditioned for it and was considered the best.
