Please be a joke..
With emerging news of Fuller House, Netflix‘s reboot of the 90’s sitcom Full House, Lifetime is looking to give fans a look at what went on behind the scenes of the classic show. The Unauthorized Full House Story, as it’s aptly named, will portray the “real story” behind the hit sitcom including the many difficulties the actors encountered filming during its 1987 – 1995 run. Sounds good, right? We thought so too until the photo for the cast was released and in true Lifetime fashion … well just see for yourself.
Try to contain your laughter as we give you a rundown on the cast (Via The Wrap):
-Bob Saget: Garrett Brawith (Rolling)
-Dave Coulier: Justin Mader (Death Race)
-John Stamos: Justin Gaston (Days of Our Lives)
-Lori Loughlin: Stephanie Bennett (Big Eyes)
-Candace Cameron: Shelby Armstrong and Brittney Wilson (Rogue) as the younger and older versions of the actress, respectively
-Jodie Sweetin: Dakota Guppy (The Returned) and Jordyn Olson (The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story) as the younger and older versions of the actress, respectively
-Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: Blaise and Kinslea Todd as the toddler versions of twins; Calla and Tyla Jones playing them at age 6; and Kylie and Jordan Armstrong as the twins at 9.
