8 June 4th, 2015 Former DAYS Star Justin Gaston To Play John Stamos Role In Lifetime Movie “The Unauthorized ‘Full House’ Story”!


Lots of chit-chat on social media this morning following the reveal initially at The Wrap of the cast for the upcoming Lifetime Movie on the behind-the-scenes of the making of the popular ABC sitcom Full House (1987 to 1995) that starred former GH star John Stamos along with Bob Saget.

The Unauthorized ‘Full House’ Story” is set to premiere on August 22nd at 8PMET/5PMPST on Lifetime.  Cast in role of Uncle Jessie, originally played by John Stamos, in none other than former Days of our Lives star and husband of The Young and the Restless Melissa Ordway (Abby), Justin Gaston (Ex-Ben)!

Filling out the remainder of the main roles in this “Unauthorized” story of the sitcom are Garrett Brawith as Bob Saget’s Danny Tanner. Dakota Guppy as a young Jodie Sweetin,  Justin Mader’s as Dave Coulier’s Joey, and the Lori Loughlin role being played by Stephanie Bennett.

In the meanwhile, Netflix is getting ready to shoot a revival of the series entitled Fuller House, with many of the original cast members in a pick up of the series some 20 years later.  Elsewhere, original Full House series stars Dave Coulier and John Stamos have already voiced their disdain for this unauthorized movie.  Check out the cast picture of the Lifetime movie here!  Then share your thoughts on the casting of Justin Gaston in the role of Jesse and the rest of the cast in the comment section below!

    Really? This is a legitimate entertainment project? *sigh*


    Harry replied

    I know–I mean, really?
    There is now an over abundance of good quality TV programs available now that I can hardly keep up with them.
    What over paid pin head of an executive though this was a good idea?


  2. Blake says:

    That’s ex-Ben from Days? I would never would have guessed that was him.

    Good grief, how embarrassing-they look ridiculous. The actress chosen to play Jodie Sweetin really resembles the actress when she was younger, IMO. Didn’t Lifetime learn their lesson with the ridiculous “Liz and Dick” movie featuring Lohan-that was utterly awful! I think it aired once (?) and was pulled the other it was scheduled to air.


    CeeCee replied

    OMG, dmr….that movie was such a bust. Logan as Taylor? Awful. Awful…il lion times awful.
    I think Gaston is married to ‘Abby’, Y&R.
    What a joke this whole thing is!!!!!


  4. Mo says:

    The picture is awful.

    And Justin was not a Days ‘star’.

    Have never liked Justin.


  5. Laurie says:

    Yes, I thought he was a better Ben. Have NO idea how he is as a person. I just know I saw him sing on a show called Nashville Star eons ago, where Billy Ray Cyrus was a judge. Think that’s where he met Miley & got engaged to her. Think he’s now an actor & is married to the actress who plays Abby on Y&R. Well, come to think of it, I think he’s been an actor/model longer than a singer.
    As far as Lifetime, I pay almost 0 attention to their behind-the-scenes movies, maybe because I’ve worked behind the scenes in entertainment biz or because Lifetime just doesn’t do them well usually-example: Jodi Arias story. I’m sure there’s lots of dirt behind the scenes of Full House or maybe any show, but I doubt Lifetime will tell it well. As far as the actors cast: I’d accept the role, too, if I were a new actor, probably trying to get a foot in the door. Good luck to them all.
    My questions: How did this boring, cornball show ever become such a hit & why is it even worthy of a behind-the-scenes movie AND a reboot on Netflix? Okay, I’ll answer: Cornball’s fine-that’s Carol Burnett Show IMO, and I love that. I found Full House tedious & sugary sweet-Stamos is the only thing that drew me in. Could’ve been my age-I was a GH fanatic & 18-25 when it was on, not 8-15, so it went right over my head. But to each their own! I adore Jodie Sweetin & Candace Cameron-Bure-enjoyed her on DWTS & enjoy their Hallmark Movies-a much cooler channel IMO! Love Stamos as well. Good luck to all!


  6. Harry says:

    WHY? WHY? Why is this even necessary? It was bad enough when they launched a reunion show on Amazon Prime, now this? Full House even in its acid washed jean glory days was mediocre at best. Let Full House rest in peace and let us not speak of it ever again.
