Sure, fashion moguls Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen weren’t interested in reprising their role as Michelle Tanner on the Netflix reboot Fuller House, but what about little sister Elizabeth? You know, she’s just doing little films like Captain America: Civil War. “I don’t think this has been talked about,” John Stamos, who will return as Uncle Jesse, told Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM talk show “Radio Andy.” “I didn’t do it, I think Jeff Franklin did. I said, ‘Call the sister [Elizabeth Olsen]. 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.” One can only hope that she responded with “No way, José!”
