Six Degrees of General Hospital: John Stamos Wanted James Franco to Play Uncle Jesse in Full House Flick!
For those of us who remember fondly the days of Full House, The Fresh Prince of Bell and Family Matters the possibilities of a reunion show or a remake often generates a mixed bag of emotions. On one hand we’d love to see our long ago favorites, but on the other hand it may be better to just keep our memories intact.
In an interview with Vulture, former General Hospital and Full House star John Stamos discussed the 25th anniversary of Full House and revealed which fellow former Port Charles denizen he once wanted to play Uncle Jesse on the big screen.
There's been some talk over the years of doing a Full House reunion, and then of a Full House remake, à la The Brady Bunch, where you'd cast other actors in the parts.
I was flattering myself to think that James Franco might play me, and Steve Carell could do the Bob Saget role. The reunion had some movement, and then it was on hold. But I think if we're going to do anything, we should do it while we're all still looking okay. We should get together and do reunion for TV Land or something. I don't know. It's 25 years this September since it first started airing, and no matter what I do, that's how people think of me. I've tried in the past to forget it and not be associated with it, but I've since learned to embrace it.
Would you watch a Full House remake with James Franco as Uncle Jesse?
