John Stamos is having the time of his life in Broadway's The Best Man – but his character, ruthless presidential candidate Joseph Cantwell, is about as far a cry from Uncle Jesse as you can get.
"It's one of the hardest things, to be a bastard for two hours and 40 minutes," Stamos tells PEOPLE. "It's exhausting."
"I'm not used to that as an actor, to make people not like me," he says. "I spent 30 years doing the opposite! But I know that I'm not doing the piece justice or the character justice if I don't lean into making him the snake that he is."

Things got pretty steamy between Glee stars John Stamos, Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith Saturday night – on stage at the GLAAD awards, that is.
It all started when Rivera, who was co-hosting the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York along with Monteith, announced she would sell her "sweet lady kisses to the highest bidder" to help raise funds.
Monteith wasn't going to let the offer go unchallenged, offering his own smooching services – complete with freshly applied ChapStick – to interested bidders.
A sporting Monteith told the audience, which was in attendance to support gay and lesbian issues, "I have kissed Naya and it is fricken' awesome," but Rivera had fighting words: "It's officially a kiss-off," she announced, between "my juicy lips and his thin ones."

These days, John Stamos is as well known for his age-defying looks as he is for his portrayal of Uncle Jesse on Full House.
Despite this sentiment (there are 1.7 million Google results for "John Stamos doesn't age"), the 48-year-old actor says he works hard to maintain his physique.
"I started Pilates," he revealed on The Talk Thursday, adding that he keeps up with the exercise classes despite the fact that "I'm the only guy in there."
"They plot before I get there: 'How can we make John look ridiculous?' " Stamos said on the show. "Because every exercise involved my legs up, like I'm in the stirrups or something."

Jimmy Kimmel hosted a star-studded, four-hour wrap dinner for his show at West Hollywood's Fig & Olive. Joining the group: Ryan Gosling, who was especially charming and nice to the wait staff and fellow diners. The group, which also included Kimmel's girlfriend Molly McNearney, John Stamos and Bob Saget, was in great spirits, starting off with Grey Goose cocktails and red wine. They also sampled Mediterranean-inspired menu items such as rosemary lamb chops and fig & gorgonzola tartlets. – Jennifer Garcia

Attention, John Stamos: Are you getting the message yet?
Last year, Karina Smirnoff told PEOPLE that the actor, 47, is her dream partner for an upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars.
Looks like she's launching the campaign yet again. Asked recently about who she wants to dance with, Smirnoff, 33, was abundantly clear.

John Stamos is flattered that fans think he could replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, but don't expect to see the former ER star on the CBS comedy any time soon.
"It's really not part of my career plan right now," he told Ryan Seacrest Friday. "I'm just on a different trajectory."
After Charlie Sheen was fired from the hit TV show, rumors swirled that stars such as Stamos and Rob Lowe might be up for filling the void. Still, Stamos isn't sure that he's the right guy for the job.

Charlie Sheen, casting director?
The troubled actor and recently deposed star of Two and a Half Men, 45, has told his ongoing radio confessor Dan Patrick, amid excoriating broadcast interviewers for what he considers their judgmental tone, that he really likes John Stamos and Rob Lowe as possible replacements on the CBS sitcom.
"I think they're both fabulous," said Sheen, "and my apologies to John. I was rude to him earlier, John Stamos. That was unnecessary." Last week, when news surfaced that Stamos, 47, may be hired as a successor to Sheen on the show, Sheen called the move a "tragic joke."
"And Rob's an old friend and a brilliant actor. And he's a beautiful man," Sheen continued. "What I would advise them to do, though, is just make it their own. Don't, don't, don't think about anything that I've done brilliantly on the show for 177,000 episodes … but I would just tell them, make it your own."

Charlie Sheen may be one of a kind, but is he irreplaceable?
When Monday's news broke that the actor, 45, had officially been given the boot from Two and a Half Men, fans of the hit CBS show questioned whether the show would go on – and if so, with which new star?
Producers are reportedly discussing current Parks and Recreation star Rob Lowe. John Stamos's name also has come up recently. (Both of whom Sheen said he's fine with replacing him on Dan Patrick's radio show Wednesday morning.) Or what about Steve Carell, whose run on The Office is nearly up?
Vote below on who you think would be the best new addition to Two and a Half Men:

Don't mess with Uncle Jesse.
The Michigan couple who attempted to extort $680,000 from former Full House actor John Stamos learned the hard way. Allison Coss and Scott Sippola, who were convicted in July of conspiracy and using email to threaten a person's reputation, each received four-year prison terms on Friday.
"The defendants' strategy consisted of lying and inventing stories at trial in a bid to confuse and incite the jury," Stamos, 47, said in a statement read in court (he wasn't present). "I was forced to watch [Coss] slander me at trial with impunity while the press reported their fabricated allegations."

John Stamos may be going Gleek!
Stamos, known for his role as Full House heartthrob Uncle Jesse, is negotiating a deal to appear in a recurring role on FOX’s musical hit comedy Glee next season, reports EW.com.
The show's season finale, airing Tuesday, may provide clues about the character Stamos could play, when a certain mysophobic guidance counselor mentions she’s been dating her dentist. That, of course, is Emma (Jayma Mays), the one who got away from doting glee club director Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison).
