Have mercy!

In a preview from Lifetime's upcoming Unauthorized Full House Story, John Stamos is shown trying to give Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen the boot from Full House – but was the actor who played the twins' doting on-screen Uncle Jesse really capable of doing such a thing?

"It's sort of true that the Olsen twins cried a lot," Stamos told critics at the Television Critics Association's press tour Thursday in Beverly Hills. "It was very difficult to get the shot. So I [said], 'Get them out ... !' That is actually 100 percent accurate. They brought in a couple of unattractive redheaded kids. We tried that for a while and that didn't work. [Producers] were like, all right, get the Olsen twins back. And that's the story."

According to Entertainment Weekly, the 51-year-old actor revealed that he has shot two episodes of Netflix's Fuller House but did not get into any details.

Though the Olsen twins, 29, seem unlikely to participate in the revival, the idea is not completely out of the picture.

"The Olsen twins are teetering whether or not they'll be around," Ted Sarandos, head of content acquisition for Netflix, said last week at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills.
