Naturally, her Ginger Gladstone being a perfect personality match for David Coulier’s goofy Joey Gladstone, neither RSVP’d.
The Gladstones, including four beastly children, show up for the holiday dinner at the “Full House” house now occupied by D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy (Andrea Barber), along with the other two original paternal figures Jesse (John Stamos, who does not age) and Danny (Bob Saget), in the throes of a monster midlife crisis.
Bundy was ecstatic about the part on Instagram:
Never miss a local story.
Some websites had fun with the idea of perpetual man-child Joey getting married, Bustle writing: “… the actor portraying his beau, Laura Bell Bundy, is so out of his league.”
With a lot to get to in the Thanksgiving episode, Bundy only has a few scenes, but makes the most of them, appearing in a poof (Ginger is a magician) and sharing a joke with Joey.
That’s not the only new Bundy this holiday season. The Lexington native has a new movie on UP TV. In “Season’s Greetings,” Bundy plays a greeting card editor who butts heads with the company’s new owner, played by Casey Manderson. Bundy’s Darcy is something of a free spirit to Manderson’s straight-laced CEO Will, and the role appears to have given her a lot of shots at physical comedy, as she describes in a promotional video.
The movie premiered Sunday night and repeats at 7 p.m. Dec. 17, 5 p.m. Dec. 18, 7 p.m. Dec. 19, 3 p.m. Dec. 20, 11 p.m. Dec. 21 and 5 p.m. Dec. 24. UP is one of those stations that often prompts readers to ask, “Where can I find it?,” when we write about them. It is listed at channel 160 and 820 on Time Warner (I get it at 820), 188 on DISH Network and 338 on DIRECTV.
