Lifetime is producing an "Unauthorized Full House" movie and while viewers will have to wonder about the veracity of different aspects in it, John Stamos confirms that one already-released scene is "100 percent accurate" -- the one where he wanted Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen replaced.
"The Olsen twins cried a lot [as babies], it was very difficult to get the shot," Stamos tells the 2015 TCA summer press tour audience. "That was 100 percent accurate. I said get rid of these kids, and they brought in a couple unattractive redheaded kids and we tried that for a while and that didn't work, so I said get the Olsen twins back -- that's the story."
While some actors want nothing to do with their Lifetime on-screen personas -- we're looking at you, Luke Perry -- Stamos says that he has a great sense of humor about all the recent hoopla surrounding "Full House."
"I find sense of humor in all of it," says the "Grandfathered" actor. "There's also an off-Broadway musical they're doing, I think it's National Lampoon. Perez Hilton's playing Bob Saget, I find a lot of humor in that."
Stamos also says they did a good job casting him for Lifetime. "He's a good-lookin' guy, pretty dreamy," says Stamos of the actor who's playing him, Justin Gaston.
"The Unauthorized Full House Movie" premieres Saturday, Aug. 22, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime, "Grandfathered" premieres Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX and "Fuller House" is coming to Netflix in 2016.
