Moviefone: To start with, is it true that you just really got here up with the title for the sequence?
John Stamos: Right. I got here up with that title. Brad Garrett from ‘Everyone Loves Raymond,’ he had the thought and he pitched it David Kelly years in the past. The unique title, it was referred to as ‘The Big Ugly’ or one thing like that. I mentioned “No, we’re not calling it ‘The Big Ugly.’” I just started pitching stuff and ‘Big Shot’ seemed to stick.
A big shot to me is not like in the Billy Joel song. Big Shot to me is a good person, a good human, somebody who does their best. Marvyn talks about that a lot. At the end of the day, can you look in the mirror and say, “I did my perfect at the moment. I used to be particular person. I used to be loving. I used to be type.” That’s what I’ve learned from the character I think too.
MF: Can you talk about how Marvyn Korn has changed between since season one?
JS: Just a little bit. That’s the beauty of it. I love that he learns, and I love that he can say I’m sorry. Usually he’ll stick his foot in his mouth. He’s growing, and he’s evolving. There’re just new challenges all the time that comes up with him now that his daughter’s a little older.
He wasn’t a present father and so he learned that last season. There’s a lot of controversy. A lot of sparks going with Emma, my daughter and I love it. The show got lighter in places. We spent a little more time with the girls and some of the fun stuff that they would do and then it gets deeper. I’m always gravitating towards the dramatic stuff.
MF: How is Marvyn dealing with being a father now?
JS: He tries. That’s the thing, he tries. He wants to be a good parent. I think last season at the end of the year, he nailed it. He thought it was about spending time or discipline. It is all that, but at the end of the day, it’s about sacrifices and sacrificing something that you want for the good of your child.
You don’t win a trophy at the end of the day, get a banner or a ring. What you do get is a better, smarter, more loving version of you out there in the world. That’s a good lesson and that’s obviously what I try to bring home to my family and my son.
MF: Is it true that one of the storylines this season was based on the passing of your friend Bob Saget?
JS: Yeah. We started the show a few months after Bob Saget passed away and I pitched a story where Marvyn loses a friend, a mentor, and starts to question his legacy. When Bob died, he just got this outpouring of love that was rarely seen. The sad thing was that he didn’t know how loved he was, I don’t think. He didn’t know how important he was to people and how many lives that he’s changed.
I wanted Marvyn to be able to hear it from the girls. At the graduation the girls get together, and they tell me what I meant to them and the world, and it’s nice when people get to hear what they mean to people. That’s what Bob did. He left nothing on the table. He always told you how much he loved you and how proud he was of you. You walked away feeling better when you spent time with Bob. He was incredibly human.
MF: Finally, this season will introduce boys to the campus of Westbrook High School, how will that change the dynamics of the show?
JS: Boys, yeah. It was very smart, and it just opened up a lot. The guys are really good. One of them is the son of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Charlie and he’s a big, tall, handsome guy. They’re great.
I was the youngest guy on the set over the years. I was the teenager looking up to everybody and I grabbed my mentors over the years, and people I worked with and now I’m the old guy having to pay it forward. I accept the responsibility and I enjoy it. The girls are just full of life and love. They’re fun, they’re happy and they’re fearless. They come to the set and I learned from them as well.
