Unauthorized Full House Story

Unauthorized Full House Story Star Promises 'Positive' Portrayal of Cast — Plus: Watch Two New Clips

Lifetime’s Unauthorized Full House Story (Saturday, 8/7c) may illuminate some of the classic sitcom’s less camera-friendly moments, but star Justin Gaston — who portrays both John Stamos and his Elvis-worshipping alter ego, Jesse Katsopolis — isn’t worried about ruffling the original cast’s feathers.

“I heard that some of them were a little hesitant about [the movie], which I understand,” Gaston tells TVLine. “But I think they’ll see it as a positive look back at the show. I hope they enjoy it.”

Most of the film’s backstage drama — as seen in the first preview clip below — revolves around the Olsen twins; the other girls didn’t like being upstaged, and the adults weren’t initially sure how to work with them. (Stamos recently admitted that he nearly got the twins fired.)


There’s also a bit of playful banter between Stamos and his co-stars, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier, which you can peep in this second clip:


As someone who grew up watching Full House as a kid, Gaston says he’s excited for other fans to relive classic moments through him, including some “fun” scenes with Jesse and the Rippers — though he regrets to inform us he doesn’t get to croon the band’s most iconic song.

“‘Forever’ is so good, such a classic, but I didn’t get to do it,” he says. “I don’t sing in this one.”

And now, Gaston leaves you with these two simple words:

    Every time I see this guy, I think it’s Sam Witwer.

  2. Thought for sure the two words were going to be “It sucks.”

    Regarding the second clip, who talks like that? The dialogue is awful!
