The Tanner family: coming to a big screen near you?
John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse on the show from 1987 to 1995, says he's "working on a movie idea." Don't expect Mary-Kate, Ashley Olsen and the original gang back, though.
"It wouldn't be us playing us," Stamos tells New York's Daily News. "I'm not 100 percent sure, but it would probably take place in the first few years [of the sitcom]." Stamos, who has since starred on ER, has a few actors in mind to play the lead roles.
James Franco would be perfect as Uncle Jesse, he says. "I see Steve Carell as Danny Tanner [originally played by Bob Saget] and Tracy Morgan as Joey Gladstone [originated by Dave Coulier] because he's funny," Stamos continues. And just because recasting the movie doesn't mean Stamos (a spokesperson for Project Cuddle, a charity to prevent infants from being abandoned) isn't tight with his former costars.
