John Stamos Talks About Being an Ugly Baby

John Stamos Talks Sex

…or the lack there of.


John Stamos is a busy guy these days, and I (along with my army of fellow humans who have had a long-standing crush on him) wouldn’t have it any other way. So in my quest to find any and every reason to talk to John Stamos, I got him on the phone yesterday to get some info about all the ways he’s going to be on our TV in the coming weeks.

The excitement starts tonight when, as EW’s Tim Stack revealed earlier, Dr. Carl (Stamos) and Emma (Jayma Mays) seek the help of Holly Holiday (Gwyneth Paltrow) for their nonexistent sex life. “I knew that Emma was a virgin, and then we got married in an episode, so I was like, ‘How are they going to deal with this?’ So you find out that Carl and Emma are actually having sex problems. And the problem is they’re having no sex,” he tells EW exclusively, adding a juicy tidbit: “I think you find out that she might still have some feelings for Will.”

Can we get a hip-hip…wait. Does this mean no more Carl? A.K. Freaking. A. No more Stamos?

“I think I’m going to come back to wrap up that storyline, but you never know,” he says. “I think people like me on there, but they really love Will and Emma together. So I don’t know how much longer people can stand Will and Emma not being together. You never know what they’re going to do. It’s funny, people respond, most of it is really positive, but some are like, ‘We love you, but get off of Glee because we want Emma to be with Will, not you!” He can stay on as long as he likes, as far as I’m concerned, as long as we get more songs like “Afternoon Delight,” which he also reveals, holds a bit of a mixed meaning for his TV wife. “Emma thinks it’s about dessert [laughs] and it’s about a nooner. I never thought I’d be singing that song and in that outfit.”

Stamos Going to ‘2 1/2 Men’?

Well then…


While Charlie Sheen was on a press tour this weekend, CBS’ top boss man was on a quest to save Two and a Half Men.

I just got word that Les Moonves had a nice chat with John Stamos on Saturday about replacing Sheen on the hit sitcom.

Really? Here’s what went down…

Sources exclusively tell me that Moonves approached Stamos at Jeffrey Katzenberg‘s Night Before benefit at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

“They were at the bar talking and Les asked John if he’d be interested in replacing Charlie,” one source says. “It wouldn’t be to play Charlie’s character but they talked more about introducing a new character.”

There were rumors early last week that Stamos was in talks to take over for Sheen, but Stamos tweeted on Friday, “Contrary to the rumors, I am not replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men. however, Martin Sheen has asked me to be his son.”

I’m told the conversation between the Moonves and Stamos lasted for about 15 minutes. It’s unclear if more formal conversations are set to take place, but a source reports that Moonves’ talk-show cohost wife Julie Chen and Paramount Pictures CEO Brad Grey piped in, too. “They were all for it,” the source said. “They were saying how they think it could definitely work.”

Stamos Was Supposed to be Frank-N-Furter

This was not news to me but it was all over the web today, so I thought I would post.


As Tuesday’s Rocky Horror Glee Show inches ever closer to our televisions, we’ve all by now seen the photos of various Glee cast members doubling as classic Rocky Horror characters like Riff Raff (Kurt), Columbia (Tina), Brad Majors (Finn), and the titular golden-speedo’d hunk Rocky Horror (the perpetually shirtless Sam). Most curiously, it appears Amber Riley’s Mercedes is the one with the honor of stepping into the high-heels and black corset of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Rocky Horror‘s cross-dressing provocateur-cum-ringmaster so memorably played by Tim Curry in the feature film. Aside from looking frighteningly fabulous, the character gets to belt one of the show’s best-known songs: “Sweet Transvestite.”

It turns out, however, that guest star John Stamos, who plays the new squeeze of guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays), was originally going to tackle the naughty anthem. While speaking with EW last month about his recurring role on Glee, Stamos said of the Rocky Horror episode, “I was supposed to be doing ‘Sweet Transvestite,’ but I think the network saw the script and was like, ‘Stamos in fish nets? It’s too soon!’” Stamos chuckles. “So they switched it up. I was bummed, because I wanted to play that part.” Indeed, if this leaked demo is to be believed, Stamos even recorded a version of the song. (You can check out Riley’s version of the song on iTunes, although the bad doctor’s hometown is now apparently “Sensational, Transylvania,” instead of “Transsexual, Transylvania.” Because Glee is always so chaste.) Fox has no comment.

Stamos instead donned a black leather jacket and straddled a motorcycle as ex-delivery boy Eddie, played in the film by Meat Loaf, for the song “Hot Patootie — Bless My Soul.” To prepare, Stamos — who’s headlined four Broadway musicals — said he “faked sickness” so he could work with a private vocal coach on the song. “And then we [recorded] the song, and they said, ‘OK, so here’s the dance.’ I was like, ‘Aw, my sickness has kind of come back.’ And then I rented out my own studio, and I got my own dance instructor, and worked at it.” He smiles earnestly. “I swear to you. I hope [the Glee producers] are not reading this.”

Stamos spoke with EW, in fact, the morning after he’d finished shooting the song. “My knees are killing me,” said the 47-year-old, wincing. “I had to slide across on my knees like 25 times. It’s a good first song for me to do on Glee, because it’s with all the kids, and we’re up, we’re dancing.” Even though last season on Glee Emma infamously snarked, “They say it takes more certainty than talent to be a star — I mean, look at John Stamos,” the actor says he’s “always loved” the show. “It’s really nice that this show worked. They goofed on me in the beginning, so I had to secretly watch it, because I loved it so much. I told everybody I hated it, but I was a closet Glee fan.”


The Stamos Was Maaaad

Poor baby.


Glee‘s executive producer Brad Falchuk has admitted that he regrets insulting John Stamos during the show’s first season.

In the program’s third episode, Emma (Jayma Mays) comments: “They say it takes more certainty than talent to be a star. I mean, look at John Stamos.”

Stamos, who joined the cast for the second season, told New York Magazine that he was “p*ssed” when he heard about the remark and called the head of Fox TV to complain.

Meanwhile, Falchuk confessed that he would not make the comment now that he has met Stamos and knows that he struggles from a lack of confidence.

“If I had known John then, we never would have used it,” he said. “We needed someone iconic to use in that joke, and John seemed like the perfect mix of a guy who could take it… It’s surprising, when you talk to him. He’s vulnerable without being neurotic. He’s very endearing.”

Stamos added: “I know those guys with such bravado, and I wish I could be like them. I’m not the guy who bursts into the room. I’m the most insecure person you’ll meet if you get to know me.”
