Though it’s been off the air since 1995, there’s been steady buzz about doing a remake, a la the Brady Bunch, with different actors in those iconic roles. John Stamos recently said in The Vulture that he would love to see James Franco strut his stuff as Uncle Jesse. Have mercy indeed. Here’s a couple of other suggestions from Buzzfeed.

6. Uncle Jesse:

James Franco - Can he smolder while rocking a leather jacket? Check.

ID: 594337

Tom Welling - We’re sorry, we’re too busy drowning in the pretty to think of anything pithy.

ID: 594379

James Marsden - Sexy, sweet, and the man can sing which is must for that inevitable Jesse and the Rippers scene.

9. Uncle Joey:

Taran Killam - Something tells us he’ll be able to handle classic Uncle Joey goofiness without a problem.

ID: 594425

Will Arnett - He already owns the shirt.

ID: 594435

Aziz Ansari - It’d get weird, but that’s how we like it.

ID: 594472

12. Danny Tanner:

Josh Radner - After all, he does grow up to be Bob Saget.

ID: 594509

Ty Burrell - The man has a deep well of TV Dad knowledge.

ID: 594532

Jason Bateman - For a dry, sardonic Danny Tanner that Bob Saget woefully repressed during the run of the show.

ID: 594695

15. DJ Tanner:

Jennifer Lawrence - DJ was hot bitch, and don’t you forget it.

ID: 595135

Imogen Poots - A dreamier DJ.

ID: 596195

Alison Pill - As much as we hate using the word adorkable, that really is the perfect way to describe Alison and DJ.

ID: 596212

18. Stephanie Tanner:

Taissa Farmiga - Can’t you just picture the American Horror Story star saying “How Rude!”

ID: 596223

Lily Collins - Lily’s serious eyebrows capture Stephanie’s serious middle child syndrome perfectly.

ID: 596234

Emma Watson - We’re pretty sure Hermoine Granger can nail the nerdy nostalgia vibe.

ID: 596244

21. Michelle Tanner:

Chloe Moretz - We feel that the Olsen twins would be proud to pass on their legacy to the multiple Young Artist Award winner.

ID: 596262

Abigail Breslin - You got our vote dude!

ID: 596271

Elle Fanning - Sweet and sensitive, the perfect Michelle.

ID: 596287

24. Kimmy Gibbler:

Aubrey Plaza - Aubrey’s got Kimmy’s deadpan down, although in her case it’s probably more sarcastic than Gibbler’s ernest gaze.

ID: 596306

Lena Dunham - Lena understands the importance of headbands, which is of course, the essence of KG.

ID: 596316

Emma Stone - The only reason to not cast her is fear of our girl stealing the show.

ID: 596329

27. Rebecca Katsopolis:

Zoe Saldana - We’d believe that Uncle Jesse would give up all other women for her.

ID: 596385

Stana Katic - She’s the HBIC on Castle, and she’d be running the show on Full House too.

ID: 596505

Sarah Michelle Gellar - The original tough, sexy girl, how could Uncle Jesse ask for anything more?

ID: 596518

30. Nicky and Alex Katsopolis

Asa Butterfield - The Hugo star is such a heavyweight, he’d be able to carry both parts no problem.

ID: 596654

Laurence Belcher - You might remember him from X-Men First Class (he was young Professor X), and you’d definitely rave about him in Full House.

ID: 596700

Dylan and Cole Sprouse - Though older than our other two choices, we’re confident the real life twins would be the best bet.

Add your picks in comments! And hopefully some Hollywood genius will get around to stealing all these great ideas.
