John Stamos recently confirmed that he once tried to get Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fired in the early days of the popular ABC sitcom “Full House.” However, the actor has recently become the biggest advocate for the Olsens’ participation in the upcoming reboot “Fuller House.” Though the twins have not yet agreed to join the cast of the highly anticipated Netflix series, Stamos told “Today” Monday that the door is always open.
"They're fully welcome anytime," Stamos told Matt Lauer on “Today." “There was a lot of miscommunication in the press. They have big lives; they haven't acted in a while. But I love them dearly and they're always welcome on the show."

Stamos’ appeals to the Olsens are starting to become routine. While promoting his new Fox series, "Grandfathered," on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" earlier this month, Stamos poked fun at the twins with host Jimmy Kimmel while expressing hope that they would eventually join the “Fuller House” cast.
"The invitation is there," said Stamos. "I understand they are doing other things, but we'd love to have them."
"Fuller House" is in production, but Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who together played Michelle Tanner on the original series, have yet to decide whether they will be a part of the new show. Stamos, who played the twins' uncle, Jesse Katsopolis, will return for the Netflix reboot along with co-stars Bob Saget and David Alan Coulier.
Stamos currently stars in "Grandfathered. In the new Fox sitcom, Stamos plays a lifelong bachelor who gets the shock of a lifetime when he finds out that he has a son, played by Josh Peck, and a grandchild. "Grandfathered" premieres Tuesday, Sept. 29, at 8 p.m. EDT on Fox.
As for the Olsens, will fans get to see Mary-Kate and Ashley on "Fuller House?" Only time will tell. The Netflix reboot is scheduled to be released in 2016.
