Life’s Good for Uncle Jesse: John Stamos Lands ‘Necessary Roughness’ Gig and New Pilot

John Stamos Cast in USA's Necessary Roughness

Even just a couple of years ago, John Stamos was a punchline. He was remembered for only two things: being Uncle Jesse on Full House and the ex-husband of Rebecca Romijn. If he was lucky, he’d get a gig playing bongos for The Beach Boys when they’d appear on Dancing With the Stars

Now, all that’s turned around, and Uncle Jesse has quite the full schedule. Stamos has been a recurring guest star on Ryan Murphy‘s NBC sitcom The New Normal (not to mention Glee). He’s also landed an NBC legal drama pilot for fall 2013 called I Am Victor, and now he’s just booked a season-long role on USA’s Necessary Roughness, as the founder of a sports and entertainment management company who will do anything to hire sports therapist Dr. Dani Santino (Callie Thorne) to his firm. Of course, Necessary Roughness is on USA because USA only has sexy shows about sexy people. The only mystery is why Stamos hasn’t ended up there before now.

Editor/Interactive Content Director Christian Blauvelt is’s expert for all things geek. Can’t tell the difference between a Kowakian monkey lizard and a Krayt dragon? Don’t know whether to order a raktajino or a Romulan Ale from your Ferengi barman? He’s your geek! This knowledge was acquired over many years of rigorous training during his youth on the swamp planet St. Petersburg, FL. Think of him like Channing Tatum in Magic Mike but with entertainment journalism in place of the custom furniture ambitions and minus the washboard abs. A stint on the ice planet Hoth (Northwestern University) finally led to him coming to Coruscant (New York City), where he helps share his knowledge with you all. He will desperately try to avoid puns like, "Set phasers for phun!"
