David Duchovny Auditioned For All The Lead Roles On This Sitcom & Didn't Get Any!

David Duchovny is opening up about his failed auditions for a very popular 1990s sitcom – Full House!

David joked that he went out for all three of the roles, and even the little girls’ roles, too.

“It was my first time out in LA and I ended up going to a lot of Full House stuff. They kept trying to plug me into the show, and I was wrong for every single one of them.”

This isn’t the first time David has spoke about his Full House auditions. He also told the story on Jimmy Kimmel Live a few years ago, too.

“I wanted to eat,” David joked at the time about wanting one of the roles. “I would go home and I would get the call, ‘You’re not that guy.’ I’d go in for this guy … not that guy. I’d go in for this guy … not that guy. Go home.”
