'Fuller House' Tried to Get Elizabeth Olsen To Replace Olsen Twins

After being turned down by 'Full House' twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, producers of the 'Fuller House' spin-off tried to have the youngest sister replace them.

Being an in-demand actress and now Avenger as Scarlet Witch, it was never going to happen but producers say they wanted to try anyway.

Stamos says Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen "seemed very into it; they just were afraid of acting."

"They hadn't acted and they don't consider themselves actresses," he explains in an interview.

So Stamos went to Plan B: "We actually went to... I don't think this has been talked about. I didn't do it, I think Jeff Franklin did. I said, 'Call the sister. Ask her.'"

"We talked to her agent and her agent was like, 'Come on, she's not going to do that.' But we did call her agent."

Fuller House debuts on Netflix on February 26. It's first teaser was released last month.
