Thank goodness for John Stamos. The actor was the person who first got us jazzed about a Full House spinoff, and now that Fuller House is actually happening, he’s been busy sharing pictures from the set. This week, we got our first good look at Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit, who originally played Nicky and Alex on the series and will be returning for the reboot. Just like the rest of the gang, they’re all grown up! Check out how they look now below...
It’s hard to believe the boys are in their mid-twenties at this point. (They were born back in 1990). It’s also interesting to note that they don’t look as alike as they used to, although maybe a lot of that actually had to do with the ridiculous full haircuts they sported back in the early nineties. Getting a good look at them on the set is actually pretty nice; unlike a lot of the other actors from Full House, the Tuomy-Wilhoits didn't pursue careers in showbiz following their tenures on the former ABC sitcom and we haven't seen or heard from them in a while.
The news comes just a few days after the twin boys were confirmed to return to Fuller House to play Nicky and Alex on Netflix. In fact, a good chunk of the original cast of the nineties sitcom will be back for this new amalgamation. Other characters we can expect to see include D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jesse, Becky, Joey, Danny Tanner and even Steve making a comeback.
A couple of weeks ago, the new Netflix series was actually going to be twin-less, as the Tuomy-Wilhoit twins were not signed on and the Olsen twins had said they were not committing to roles on the new show. Regardless, things change fast in the entertainment world, and now Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit are officially in for Fuller House. Plus, Netflix President Ted Sarandos recently shared the tidbit that the Olsen twins might actually be around, after all, so we could be hearing even more good news in the coming weeks. Here’s the exact quote:
Thanks to a fashion empire and a wide range of interests, the Olsen Twins certainly don't need the money that Fuller House would pay, but given they got their start on the show back in the day, having them around would feel right. Hopefully, everyone involved will figure out a way to make that happen, even if it's just for an episode here or there.
Fuller House isn’t expected to premiere on Netflix until 2016, but in the meantime here’s a list of the numerous shows that are rebooting or reworking another property.
