This former Full House star and current ER doc sure is hunky. And a bit insane from time to time. Sorry Uncle Jesse. Er, John Stamos. We...

Jimmy Fallon is having nightmares about leaving Late Night for the Tonight Show, which he will do this year, and who better to help with that than the Full House cast.

In a skit on last night's show, Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) and Uncles Jesse (John Stamos) and Joey (Dave Coulier) visited the anxious, insomniac host.

As Jimmy tosses and turns in bed (what looks like Michelle Tanner's old bed, in fact) calling out "Dad, Dad," the trio appears and the hair jokes follow:

All kidding aside, there's a life lesson in all of this. Not unlike so many we learned over the years from Danny, Jesse and Joey in their child-rearing heyday.

"I guess I'll just miss Late Night. I've been doing this for five years," Fallon says. "There have been so many special moments and so many great musical guests."

But, as Danny reminds him, it's okay. It's normal to feel sad. But think about it this way: He can make new, special memories at The Tonight Show, too.

Then they all sing the Teddy Bear song, and all is right with the world.

For more from the venerable Full House trio ... tune into the Super Bowl this Sunday night! They're going to be in an ad together, which you can watch below:

Jesse Katsopolis lives!

The character made famous by John Stamos on Full House (way, way) back in the day will reunite with his band from that show, Jesse and the Rippers, for a special performance this Friday.

It will take place during Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Stamos got the buzz started when he posted a mysterious Instagram video of himself singing the theme song to the popular 1990s sitcom.

Karina Smirnoff would love to see John Stamos throw it down on Dancing With the Stars and partner with her an the upcoming season.

We can only hope the former Full House star obliges.

She's mentioned it before, and is now launching the unofficial campaign yet again. Asked recently who she wants to dance with, she said:

Karina Smirnoff of DWTS

"Definitely John Stamos," Smirnoff told Hollyscoop. "I think he's got the looks, plus he's got the experience of being onstage, doing Broadway."

She may have a slight crush on John, but she's not hoping for anything more. Playboy's recent smoking hot cover gal is engaged to Brad Penny.

The former ER star's, whose name came up as a possible replacement for Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, has not commented on DWTS.

Who would you like to see on the show? Stamos? Someone else?

So much for those John Stamos rumors.

The actor, who has been recurring on Glee this season, shot down chatter that he'd be taking over for Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men yesterday.

"I don't want to replace anyone, especially Charlie Sheen," Stamos told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS radio show. "It's just not where my head's at."

  • Stamos, John
  • A Mind Lost

Stamos does find the talk "flattering," but he says he has no idea how or why it started.

"Nobody has officially talked to me and, quite frankly, as flattering as it is... it's really not part of my career plan right now. I'm just on a different trajectory. I'm ready to have my own show."

So... it won't be Stamos. It won't be Rob Lowe. Will anyone take the gig? Got anyone in mind who would be a fit, THG readers?

A Michigan couple that tried to blackmail John Stamos was convicted of conspiracy and using email to threaten a person's reputation today.

In December, Allison Coss and Scott Sippola were arrested for asking $680,000 from the actor in exchange for supposedly compromising photos they possessed of him.

Stamos, John

On the stand this week, Stamos admitted to meeting Coss on vacation a few years ago and keeping in contact with her - but vehmently denied allegations of drug use and inappropriate sexual behavior.

Following this testimony, as well as investigations that did not turn up any of the comprosing evidence against Stamos the couple claimed to have, a jury found the defendents guilty. They are headed to jail.

"I would like to thank the court, the FBI and the US Attorney's office for their swift and efficient dealings in connection with this case," Stamos said in a statement.

Added Stamos:

"The allegations made regarding an inappropriate relationship are completely untrue. "These slanderous allegations to smear my reputation were part of their defense to redirect attention away from the federal crime of extortion. There was no hot tub, no drugs, no nudity and nothing sexual in nature involved in my friendship with this woman. They lied about everything from a pregnancy to compromising photos.

I'm grateful these two criminals have been found guilty and I plan to go home to be with my family and friends and prepare to get back to work."

That work will include a guest-starring stint on Glee this fall.

John Stamos will guest star on Glee this fall.

But there's nothing gleeful about his current situation: the actor took to the stand yesterday to defend himself against Allison Coss, the young woman arrested in December for trying to extort $680,000 from Stamos in exchange for not releasing allegedly compromising photos of him.

Testifying in U.S. District Court, Stamos denied all accusations that he used cocaine and/or accompanied an underage Coss in a hot tub. He admitted the following under oath:

  • He met the then-17-year old in Orlando in 2004. She told him she was 18 and on spring break from college.
  • The next day, Stamos and his friends met up with Coss and others in a hotel room, where they were "hanging out, socializing." There was no drug use of any kind.
  • Following the Florida trip, Stamos and Coss stayed in touch via e-mail, exchanges the actor described as "flirty" but "friendly."
  • Stamos asked for "wild" photos of Coss in 2007.

Coss and boyfriend Scott Sippola are charged with conspiracy and two counts of extortion against the actor. If convicted on all charges, they could face up to nine years in prison. No photos of the star have turned up in any investigation of the pair's home.

Near the end of his testimony, Coss' lawyer randomly asked Stamos if he was a friend of Charlie Sheen. He replied: "No, but I know Lindsay Lohan."

On last night's season finale of Glee, Will declared his love for Emma.

But the curly-haired teacher will have competition for this guidance counselor's affections in the fall, as multiple sources confirm that John Stamos will come aboard the show in a recurring role.

Heather Morris on Glee

The former Full House star will portray Emma's dentist and love interest. Stamos may forever be Uncle Jesse to viewers of that sitcom, but he possesses an extensive singing background, having starred in Broadway musicals such as Bye, Bye Birdie and Cabaret.

Stamos will be the latest big name to guest star on Glee.

In just one season on the air, the creative comedy attracted such stars as Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Groban, Olivia Newton-John and Kristin Chenoweth. It also paid tribute to Madonna and Lady GaGa via multiple renditions of their singles.

It's a really good show. You should watch it.

John Stamos of Full House fame says he was targeted by blackmailers who threatened to sell so-called "compromising" photos of him unless he coughed up $680,000.

Allison Coss and Scott Sippola of Marquette, Mich., were arrested last week in an FBI sting operation after they met with an undercover agent, posing as a Stamos rep.

The sting went down at a Michigan airport and they got busted.

After police raided the suspects' home, they discovered three John Stamos pics, a piece of paper with the actor's cell phone number on it, and a list of three celebrity gossip magazines with contact numbers for each, according to the affidavit.

If John Stamos can be blackmailed, who among us is safe?

Stamos was vacationing in Florida when he met Coss. At the time, the pair and another pal attended a party where pictures were allegedly taken of the actor.

Following the party, he began receiving email threats from a person who allegedly demanded $680,000 from Stamos or else the pics would be sold to a tabloid.

The affidavit did not describe the photos, but Stamos was told they would "cause harm" to his reputation if released. No word on when the pictures were taken.

Man, $680,000 for compromising John Stamos pics. Imagine what images proving a Tiger Woods overdose (or cellphone shots of the golfer naked) might fetch.

What was it that spurred John Stamos' bizarre antics on an Australian talk show last week?

Could it have been too much liquor? Drugs? The inability to shake the image of a grown-up Jodie Sweetin from his brain?

Or none of the above. The "actor" claims jet lag combined with a sleeping pill caused his bizarre behavior during a morning talk show and newspaper interview in the land down under last week.

"I was not drinking. I did not drink either morning," the ER star tells TV Guide. "I do not have an alcohol problem. I am not David Hasselhoff. This is not a pattern."

Hasselhoff, who earlier this year was videotaped shirtless and babbling incoherently on the floor of his Las Vegas hotel room, has said he is a recovering alcoholic.

Stamos, on the other hand, says jet lag and Ambien led to his odd interview with a reporter from Sydney's Daily Telegraph and on the Australian TV show Mornings with Kerri-Anne last month during which he slurred his speech, read from a teleprompter and made lewd gestures in front of her.

"By the time I got to Australia my body was so out of whack," says John Stamos, who has told TV Guide his travel plans had included stops in New York, New Orleans, Greece, Japan and Cairo before landing Down Under on June 21.

A couple of days later, when Stamos was scheduled to promote ER, he says he was still feeling jet lag so "I took a sleeping pill at 5 in the morning, Ambien."

He says he made a mistake.

"Now I know that Ambien is an eight-hour sleeping pill so if you take it, you better get 8 hours sleep," he says. "Do not take it at 5 in the morning."

But John Stamos says he does not regularly take the sleep aid, and would like to make up for the odd behavior.

"I really do feel bad. I hope Australia will give me a change to redeem myself," he said. "I love Australia. My plan is to retire there, still."

We hope he gets that chance, and certainly understand a desire to relocate to Australia. Get as far away from those creepy Olsen twins as possible.
