In response to a playful interview question from a reporter at Redbook magazine inquiring what guy he'd want to sleep with if he were a woman, John Stamos jokingly answered Will Ferrell.

"It would have to be Will Ferrell. I like his curly hair and the fact that he'll get naked at the drop of a hat. I find that sexy in a man."


B: False

Although he has landed a recurring guest role on the new season of Necessary Roughness premiering June 12, John won't be playing the part of a professional football player, but instead he'll act as Connor McClane, the powerful founder of global sports and entertainment management company V3.
