John Stamos played the coolest uncle ever on Full House, but the actresses who played his niece probably won’t be welcome in Stamos’ new, fuller house.
According to E! News, John Stamos recently shared his feelings about some comments Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen made about the Full House spin-off. The Olsen twins both played Michelle Tanner on the original series, and many fans hoped that at least one of them would return to star in the sequel. However, Stamos seems pretty irritated with the sisters.
John Stamos is executive producing the Fuller House series, and he recently announced that the show had been picked up by Netflix. During an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen were asked to comment on his announcement.
“We just found out about it… I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening… I’m shocked I haven’t heard from John (Stamos),” Mary-Kate said. Ashley Olsen also claimed that her TV dad, Bob Saget, said nothing to her about it the last time she talked to him.
Stamos recently tweeted a link to a Canoe article about the Olsen twins’ interview, and, in his response to their comments, he seems to insinuate that the girls were feigning ignorance when asked about Fuller House. In other words, he likely tried to reach out to them about starring in the series.
As Michelle Tanner would say, “How rude!”
Jodie Sweetin, Candace Cameron Bure, and Andrea Barber are all returning to star in the series, and John Stamos will guest star in it. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Lori Loughlin is in talks to join the show as Uncle Jesse’s wife, Aunt Becky.
John Stamos might be done trying to get the Olsen twins to star on the show, but Loughlin had an idea about who could play the older version of Michelle Tanner — she suggested that their look-alike younger sister Elizabeth Olsen should star on Fuller House if neither twin is interested in joining the show. However, Elizabeth Olsen is scoring roles in big movies like The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so she might not have time for the Netflix series.
John Stamos’ spin-off isn’t the only Full House project in the works. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lifetime is working on an unauthorized Full House tell-all movie in the same vein as The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story movie that aired last year. The TV movie will be about the Full House cast’s struggle to “balance idyllic family life on the show with the more complicated reality of their own lives outside the series.” One Direction fans better start the campaign to get Zayn Malik cast as John Stamos.
Stamos also tweeted his thoughts about the Full House Lifetime movie.
Uncle Jesse clearly has no mercy for anyone who threatens the Full House legacy.
You can check out John Stamos’ announcement about Fuller House below. He reveals that the Netflix series will start out as a reunion show. However, the series will mainly focus on D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).
During a recent interview Entertainment Weekly, Jodie Sweetin revealed that Steph and Kimmy will still hate each other, and they’ll be living with a pregnant, widowed D.J. and her two sons. The show will premiere on Netflix sometime next year.
Do you think John Stamos’ tweet about the Olsen twins is a clear indication that they will not be appearing on Fuller House? And are you looking forward to the Full House spin-off?
