The entertainment journalist and personality will play Danny Tanner, a role originated by Bob Saget.

Perez Hilton has been holding back a very juicy piece of gossip: he will be stepping into some pretty famous, pretty big shoes this summer, when he takes on the role of TV dad Danny Tanner.

The celebrity blogger that you either loathe or love revealed this morning during an interview with shock jock Howard Stern that he would be playing the beloved father in the on-stage production of the 90s cult favorite.

"I'm really excited to announce... It's really exciting for me, I'm going to be playing Bob Saget, basically, in a musical!" Hilton explained on SiriusXM's Howard Stern Show. "There's a new musical based on Full House called Full House: The Musical!... We're starting in Toronto in late August and coming to New York City in September."

This isn't something that just happened in the last few weeks either - it has been in the cards for awhile. "Yeah, I'm singing in it... I've been working with this amazing vocal coach named Liz Caplan for a few years," Hilton continued. "It's going to be off-Broadway in New York City at a theater on St. Mark's Place. In Toronto, we're playing a big theater, 500 seats!"

The show, officially titled Full House: The Musical!, will play at the Lower Manhattan playhouse, replacing the current parody production of another 90s favorite, Saved by the Bell.

The show will also star Seth Blum as Uncle Joey, Amanda Nichols will play D.J. Tanner, Marguerite Halcovage will play Stephanie Tanner, while Marshall Louise will take on Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's shared part of Michelle Tanner. John Duff will play one of the most iconic roles, Uncle Jesse who was played by John Stamos on the show.

"I haven't met him yet, cause we haven't began rehearsals," Hilton told Stern of Duff. "But I've seen him in other shows before and he's really talented."

The musical will open in Toronto on August 18th and will move to New York on September 7, 2015.

He's got it, Dude!
