Cinematic Crush: John Stamos

Crush object: John Stamos, actor/producer.

- As Blackie Parrish, he heated up the daytime soap General Hospital and received a Daytime Emmy Award nomination.

- Greater fame came with his performance of "Uncle Jesse" on the long-running, wholesome family hit Full House.

- Following the short-lived sitcom Jake in Progress, he joined ER as hot doc Tony Gates for its final four seasons.

- In addition to his Emmy Award nominated made-for-TV biopic The Beach Boys: An American Family, he has co-starred in several television movies, including Wedding Wars, in which he played a gay wedding planner who goes "on strike" in support of same sex marriage.

- On Broadway, he has starred in the hit revivals of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Cabaret and Nine. He will return to the Great White Way next season as Albert Peterson in a new version of Bye Bye Birdie.


  1. I admit it! I wanted to be the Rebecca Romaine Lettuce to his Stamos Salad, but alas, his Uncle Jesse shtick was pure erection deflection material. He has done a lot of musical theater--Maybe he could warrant an entry on the QuOD someday! We can dream, can't we?

  2. a nice guy in real life. but he always seemed to know when I was down to my last cigarette when he asked for one from me.

  3. Lu Zerr, your comment reminded me of a clip I saw back around the time of the release of "X2: X-Men United", I think it was at the movie's London premiere. A reporter was talking to Rebecca Romijn and John Stamos and said that he asked Alan Cumming who he would "turn into" if he had the chameleon powers of Rebecca's Mystique character. Alan said he would turn into Rebecca. "Aww, how sweet" she says. But then the reporter told them Alan's reason: so he could "shag her husband"! John's reaction was priceless.

    Thanks for reading!
