Apparently John Stamos said yesterday on Andy Cohen's Radio Show that he called up Elizabeth Olsen's agent to offer her the role of Michelle on Fuller House after her sister's turned down the return role. Her agent turned it down, which seems obvious since I'm sure it kill her career, which is going great.

Elizabeth has a better career right now than her big sisters ever did, unless we count selling clothing at K-Mart. It's pretty funny he even did this, though it created headlines for the show, so I guess mission accomplished.

I don't see how this show is successful? None of the sitcom reboots ever work.

It's a Netflix original done simply for fun. In that sense, it really can't lose. Even if it's absolutely god awful, they get to have a bit of fun on Netflix's dime and be done with it.

Girl Meets World is working, to some degree at least. Though Sean is right, this is really a win-win for Netflix since this is the kind of content that will get some new subscribers. They don't care about it lasting beyond this one season, much like the Arrested Development move.

Yeah I doubt John Stamos has the clout to cast anyone for the show in the first place.

The Olsen twins own a company with a billion dollars in sales. They don't have time to be slumming it on a Netflix TV show that they wrapped up when they were eight years old.

Stamos is an executive producer on this project, so he actually does have casting clout. Though I doubt he really expected this to happen.
