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.

Uncle Jesse:

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