John Stamos credits Grandfathered co-star Josh Peck for keeping him alive and sober

“I think I was meant to meet Josh Peck,” Stamos tells Collider of Peck, his co-star on the short-lived 2015-2016 Fox sitcom Grandfathered. “Josh Peck was a big inspiration in my recovery...Right around that time, I was going down the wrong path and I had to straighten out. And then, I’m on this show with this guy who was then in recovery for many, many years, playing my son. That part was meant to be. I wouldn’t be alive, if I hadn’t straightened up, and he was certainly part of it. So, that’s what I think about with that show.” Stamos also opened up about his disappointment that Grandfathered was canceled after one season, saying "I think very simply that it was on the wrong network." Stamos revealed he wrote an angry email to then-Fox president Dana Walden, his friend, but never sent it. Now he works for Walden as the star of Disney+'s Big Shot.

John Stamos is one of TV's most underrated actors. It's time he received his due

I have come to understand that I have a thing for John Stamos. Not a Tiger Beat, 16 magazine thing, with pinups on the inside of my locker door. I didn't grow up on "Full House," being already grown when it debuted in 1987 and introduced the world to Uncle Jesse. I didn't follow him in his pretty boy prime but became a fan in his actual prime — adult, though still boyish; less pretty, still pretty darn pretty — when he began to play grown men whose combination of charm, looks and talent had gotten them far in the world but may have also slowed their emotional growth. Mature, but still maturing.

It's time to acknowledge John Stamos as one of TV's most underrated actors

"I have come to understand that I have a thing for John Stamos," says Robert Lloyd. "Not a Tiger Beat, 16 magazine thing, with pinups on the inside of my locker door. I didn’t grow up on Full House, being already grown when it debuted in 1987 and introduced the world to Uncle Jesse. I didn’t follow him in his pretty boy prime but became a fan in his actual prime — adult, though still boyish; less pretty, still pretty darn pretty — when he began to play grown men whose combination of charm, looks and talent had gotten them far in the world but may have also slowed their emotional growth. Mature, but still maturing. I’m not saying that everything Stamos touches is gold, and his presence is certainly no guarantee of a show running even a full season (Dreams, Thieves), though he has never enjoyed the reputation of a show-killer. Still, I am more inclined to give something a chance when I notice he’s in it. I find his company pleasurable and invigorating, his acting natural but, when you stop to notice, artful. And his current series, the Disney+ teen comedy Big Shot, in which he plays a disgraced men’s college basketball coach 'reduced' to (though of course elevated by) coaching high school girls, is a perfect vehicle for his particular gifts, and for a well-maintained 57-year-old actor in the fourth decade of his career...Stamos is somewhere in the middle, not playing himself but always a little bit himself. Even when he is cast against type it only underscores that he has a type. But he’s not without range or a useful dark streak; early on, attempting to demonstrate there was more to him than Uncle Jesse, he played a pimp in the TV movie Daughter of the Streets and a serial killer in Fatal Vows: The Alexandra O’Hara Story, though generally speaking his characters, as the Shangri-Las sang, are 'good-bad, but not evil.' (He can be devilish, but not demonic.)" Lloyd adds that Stamos "doesn’t hit false notes, make scenes drag or steal another actor’s light. That he can seem less self-absorbed than the characters he plays is part of what makes them appealing; we can see that better self, waiting to be revealed. And if he never seems out of his depth, it may just be that he doesn’t overact; he doesn’t get too far out over his center of gravity. He puts me in mind of James Cagney’s well-known remark about acting: 'You walk in, plant yourself, look the other fella in the eye, and tell the truth.'"

From co-creator/showrunner Dean Lorey, the 10-episode Disney+ original series Big Shot follows Marvyn Korn (John Stamos), a men’s basketball coach who has an outburst that gets him booted from the NCAA and the only job he’s able to find is at an elite private high school with a group of teenage girls who lack the confidence they need to live up to the potential they clearly possess. Learning how to connect with his players seems like an impossible task for Coach Korn, until he realizes that a little empathy can go a long way toward helping the team shine.
