For John Stamos, starting on Scream Queens meant immediately hitting the showers — and loving it.
Back in August, the Full House star teased a shower scene on Instagram when he posted a picture of him dropping a robe with the caption, “Dirty day on the set of @screamqueensfox #Showertime.” Now ahead of Tuesday’s season premiere, Stamos, who is making his debut as Dr. Brock Holt, discussed having to drop his towel while fellow series newcomer Taylor Lautner kept his clothes on.
“The first script there was a locker scene, where I took my shirt off and changed it real fast and he [Lautner] had a whole shirt-off scene. Somehow his got rewritten, where he’s wearing this kind of stuff,” Stamos said, gesturing to Lautner’s casual attire. “And then mine turned into a big shower scene, where it’s slow motion with the sponge and water. I felt used and I loved it. So that was my first week of work there.”
Stamos talked about having to film the steamy scene with a large crew watching, prompting costar Lea Michele to say, “Well, it’s about time, because you know it’s the girls all the time, so let’s put the guys to work.” Stamos didn’t argue except to say, “Well, it’s Taylor’s turn next.”
On the Fox series, Jamie Lee Curtis’ Dean Munsch hires Stamos and Lautner to work at her hospital. “We are the two head surgeon doctors at the hospital,” said Lautner, who plays Dr. Cassidy Cascade. “We each kind of have our own little secret. I suffer from a certain condition that makes me very mysterious at the beginning, so that’s fun to play with.”
Season 2 of Scream Queens, which also stars Emma Roberts and Keke Palmer, premieres Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on Fox. Watch the video above.
