Given the death of former teammate and close friend Bob Saget earlier this year, Coulier feels his connection to the Full house the family has grown especially strong because “we realize how precious life is and how fast that clock is ticking.” In fact, noted the actor, it was “wonderful” to reconnect with Marie-Kate and Ashley Olson-who were the only stars of Full housethe programming of not appear in his suite More complete house-when the original cast reunited at Saget Memorial in January.
He continued: “Even though there was great sadness, there was great joy in being able to connect the dots over the years and not miss a beat when it comes to our friendships and love for each other.”
With his new comedy Live+localwhich focuses on the staff members of a local Christian radio station, Coulier took a 180 turn from the adorable jester Joey Gladstone to the self-proclaimed “grumpy” Tommy Murphy.
“Live+local is a departure for me,” said Coulier, who is also an executive producer of the co-starring series. Emilie Pendergast, Pat Cashman and Kendra Ann Sherrill. “People know me for Full house and More complete houseso I grew out my beard for the show and I was able to bring a lot more of the other side of me into that.”
He added, “She’s a very different character than people are going to be used to me playing.”
Live+local will be available to stream exclusively on Pure Flix on July 7.
