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*

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?

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.

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!!!!!

The picture is awful.

And Justin was not a Days ‘star’.

Have never liked Justin.

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!

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.

Chandler Massey Talks The Emotional Life Of Will Horton; Rob Scott Wilson & Victoria Konefal Share Insight On Key Scenes On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

Viewers of Days of our Lives recently watched Will (Chandler Massey) cross over to the light as he hovers near death, and sees his great grandma Caroline (Peggy McCay).  While happily Will survives, Caroline did not.  And through Will’s trauma of surviving a brain tumor, fans were treated to touching scenes between Chandler Massey and his on-screen love interest Freddie Smith (Sonny).

In addition, Will had the difficult task, at the time, to have to tell his beloved grandmother, Marlena (Deidre Hall) that he was dying in more moving and emotional scenes.  So what did Chandler Massey have to share about all the drama? Check out the latest episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast and find out!

With June being Pride Month in many cities in the U.S. and countries around the world, Chandler also weighs-in on the importance of Will as an LGBTQ character on the canvas on television, and in particular, on daytime.  In this podcast, Chandler relates how it’s been amazing to make a difference to people and their lives.  He shares the story of how a man told him in a letter that he watched Days of our Lives with his mother and through watching the storyline; where Will came out to Marlena, how it inspired him to have that conversation with his own mother at that time.  He thought his mother would not understand or accept him, but because she watched Days and saw Will’s journey to come out, she supported her son and who he was.  As Chandler explained, it was confirmation that the story was helping people.

Later, #Cin fans get a treat when Rob Scott Wilson and Victoria Konefal sit-down on the podcast and offer up commentary on some of their most recent and pivotal scenes.  Rob and Victoria take us through cabin fires and police station scenes, and their on-screen love story – a must listen for viewers who are rooting for this duo against all odds in Salem.
