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!

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?

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.

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… Read more »

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.

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
