John Stamos Was Supposed To Play Dr. Frank-N-Furter On Glee

Aw! What happened? We would have LOVED to have seen him do this!

Sources are confirming that in an original draft of The Rocky Horror Glee Show, John Stamos was meant to play the sweet tranvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter instead of Amber Riley!

Inspired choice! He would have totally rocked it!

Problem was, when the network got their hands on the first draft of the script, their fishnets got into a twist and they didn't like Stamos in the role. When asked about it, John told sources:

“I was supposed to be doing ‘Sweet Transvestite,’ but I think the network saw the script and was like, ‘Stamos in fish nets? It’s too soon!’ So they switched it up. I was bummed, because I wanted to play that part.”

We're bummed too!

It's no offense to Amber, but John really has the legs for the part! LOLs!

Would U had rather seen Uncle Jesse don the corset and stockings or are U happy they went with Amber?

    Because it was Rocky Horror it should have been John Stamos. I mean come on, it's Dr. Frank-N-Furter!!

    I agree! I just don't think Amber has the right voice for the part. She's an amazing singer, don't get me wrong…but her more soulful voice is not what Frank-n-Furter's role is about. Should've gone with Uncle Jesse!

    Wish it was John Stamos…Frank-n-Furter's supposed to be a guy anyways, love Amber, but it would be better for a guy to play him, especially John Stamos!

    I like John and all, but how could his role, as an adult dentist and boyfriend to the school counselor, ever come to play a part with the school glee club? I am glad they kept it to the students only otherwise the script would be getting too ridiculous. That is usually saved for the third or fourth season of a show when they start running out of ideas.

    LOL :D

    i love Amber she's awsome nothing against her but i would have preferd JS played the part,its not the same..

    John would have been awesome! I love him so much! Uncle Jesse was always the best at everything…

    I already saw John Stamos on Broadway in "Cabaret" in a Corset and Heels playing the Emcee. Dr Frank-N-Furter would have been a perfect fit!

    Any of the guys would have been a better choice.

    John Stamos would've been perfect as Dr. Frank-N-Furter. It makes no sense to me that Amber Riley would play the part. In Rocky Horror its a guy so why have Amber as Frank. Sweet Transvestite is one of my favorite song from Rocky Horror and now I'm annoyed that Amber is going to be the one belting it out. I love her but not for this role or this song.

    BUMMER

    no one wanted Amber Riley to be Dr. Frank-N-Furter (mostly because the voice). Stamos should have been him, and that role was clearly calling for him and the fans know it. And I totally know that sexy outfit would be totally good for him~ (ABC would block that shit though, so maybe Fox was trying to become ABC?)

    It should have been John - if they didnt want a man dressed in fishnets then they shouldnt have touched the rocky horror picture show - i like Mercedes but her version of Sweet Transvestite is absolute crap its awful and for one wont be playing it again



  14. 14

    amber is an awful choice, i dont even like stamos but he wouldve been a better choice

    @Scandeelous-YEP! He sure did and looked damn good! I mean really..it's JUST FISHNETS FOX!! I like Amber Riley,she has one hell of a voice..but it just DIDNT LOOK RIGHT.
