By now most Full House fans will be well aware that on February 27th almost the entire cast of the '80s and '90s sitcom will be reuniting for a Netflix sequel series titled Fuller House. That is to say, the entire cast will be appearing in the new series, except for Mary-Kate and/or Ashley Olsen.
After a bit of controversy regarding the invitation to join the show, the Olsen twins declined to join the sequel to the series which launched their careers, choosing instead to focus on their fashion empire. However in a recent interview, John Stamos revealed that after the Olsen twins turned down the role, the Fuller House producers actually tried to get another Olsen for the role -- their younger sister Elizabeth.
In an interview with Andy Cohen on SiriusXM, Stamos said that after Mary-Kate and Ashley declined, he suggested to producer Jeff Franklin that he called the agents for the[The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](tag:293035) actress and asked about the possibility of the 26-year-old appearing in the series. However, as we all know by now, it wasn't to be. Stamos explained:
"We talked to her agent and the agent was like, 'Come on, she's not gonna do that,'" But we did call her agent."
Yeouch! But then again I guess she did star in one of the biggest films of 2015, so perhaps Fuller House isn't the logical step forward for her career. But, regardless of the fact that no Olsen gals will be appearing in the series, the Netflix series has gone full steam ahead, and will be released on February 26th. In fact the show plans a nice nod to the Olsen twins, by explaining that Michelle Tanner's absence is due to her burgeoning fashion career in New York City. Nice touch, right?
