While most of us might be reminded of Full House's Uncle Jesse when we watch promos for John Stamos' new show Grandfathered, it turns out that Stamos had a different heartthrob in mind when he formed his character.

"The show is about a George Clooney kind of guy," Stamos tells PEOPLE the show's rakish protagonist Jimmy. "He's a bachelor who thinks he's got it all, but there is something missing. He finds out he has a son and it takes him aback, but that's not all. It turns out that he's got a daughter, and that makes him a grandfather."

But even if you're having a hard time seeing your '90s TV crush playing a grandfather, Stamos is having a blast in his new role: "I think it's funny and ironic, and that's what makes it different."
