John Stamos Wants To Play Chachi in Announced 'Happy Days' Reunion Hosted By Democratic Party of Wisconsin

John Stamos is throwing his name in the hat to help out the cast of Happy Days in filling the void of Chachi.

Earlier today it was announced that most of the original cast of the Milwaukee set show would be getting back together for a special reunion that would benefit the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.

Henry Winkler, Ron Howard, Don Most, Anson Williams, Marion Ross, and writer Lowell Ganz are the confirmed cast and crew so far for the event.

John volunteered to join the gang, as Chachi’s original portrayer, Scott Baio, is a very vocal and well known supporter of Donald Trump.

The reunion will be virtual and all proceeds will go towards making Trump a one-term president.

“We’re thrilled a show made famous in Milwaukee is coming back home to help make Donald Trump a one-term President,” Ben Wikler, Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, shared in a statement. “We know all roads to the White House go through the Badger State, and with the cast of ‘Happy Days’ helping us raise money to take back the White House, we believe even more we can deliver a victory on November 3rd.”

The Happy Days reunion will feature fan questions, behind-the-scenes stories from the cast and crew, and more surprises to be announced. Get more info and your tickets now!

Scott isn’t the only celeb supporting Trump in the election. See who else is here…

Bryce Dallas Howard Reveals She Was 'Insecure' About Her Last Name When She Was Younger

Bryce Dallas Howard has revealed she kept her last name a secret while a student at New York University because of her famous dad, director Ron Howard.

“I was insecure about that when I was younger,” she told the LA Times about her insecurity about her last name. “When I went to NYU, I wouldn’t tell anyone my last name and I was like, ‘No, Dad, you can’t come see my play because people might recognize you.’”

“For me to be weird about something that, honestly, really doesn’t have anything to do with me — I just realized, that’s just shortsighted,” she continued. “So many of my peers at NYU had parents who were really not supportive of them being artists in any way, shape or form, which totally made sense because they were scared for them.”

Bryce added, “I had parents who were emotionally supportive of me. … There wasn’t a lot of baggage that I inherited from them in that way. Have you met my dad? He’s sweet, isn’t he?”

Bryce enrolled at NYU in 1999 and she just recently graduated!

“That’s very flattering! Very flattering. And she’s great,” he shared with US Weekly.

Ron also revealed that he’d love to see Jennifer behind the camera more, too, after seeing her in action on a short film his daughter, Bryce Dallas Howard, worked on with her.

“I thought that Jennifer was really, really good [at directing]. So I’m always prodding her whenever I see her, ‘Do a little more directing!’ But … the business keeps her busy in front of the cameras.”
