As John Stamos.

Former “Days of our Lives” actor Justin Gaston (ex-Ben) will soon be seen in a rather different role. The actor will be joining many other former Salemites when he appears in a Lifetime movie. Gaston stars as John Stamos (ex-Blackie, “General Hospital”) in the new film, “Full House: The Unauthorized Story.” The movie will chronicle the pressures put on the cast of the popular 80s and 90s sitcom “Full House.” Look for it to premiere on August 22 at 8:00 PM on Lifetime. Check your local listings for more details.

Gaston played the role of Ben for four months in 2014 before leaving “Days” behind to be replaced by Robert Scott Wilson. Since leaving daytime, Gaston has filmed roles in the romantic comedy “The Concerto,” and the thriller “Ice Scream.”
