John Stamos

1. – Mark Patton, A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge, 1985.   New kid, old   nightmares.. about this burnt guy in a dirty, striped sweater, with knife-fingers on his right hand. Freddy Krueger   rules!

2. – Luke Perry, Private Parts, 1997. Perry passed on playing himself, fearing the movie would not be good.Stamos stood in for him in the Fartman MTV scene.

3. – Ashton Kutcher, Two And A Half Men, TV, 2011- . Highest paid comedy TV star Charlie Sheen was sacked after eight years due to his meltdown feud with the show’s co-creator Chuck Lorre – massive news on TV, Twitter, Facebook, every media known to man, including Sheen’s own national tour. Unless he could find a someone to be excited about, Lorre wasn’t sure if he wanted to continue Men – he already had two other hit shows, Mike & Molly and The Big Bang Theory. Suggestions included Stamos, Hugh Grant, Woody Harrelson, Rob Lowe, Jeremy Piven. Enter: Kutcher, star of That ’70s Show. He already had a Warner deal via his Katalyst company – and so, the studio’s billion dollar syndication income was secured. Because that’s all this casting call was all about. Money.
