    Actor John Stamos received the 2,393 star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, honoring a career, which has evolved from the family comedy "Full House" to television drama and Broadway.

    Television producer and movie director Garry Marshall and Stamos' "Full House" co-star Bob Saget joined Stamos in speaking in the late-morning ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard.

    "I can't believe I'm standing here," Stamos said.

    Stamos recalled a time in the early 1980s when he walked along the Walk of Fame, working on his lines from "General Hospital."

    "I thought I was trying to be a street guy and I looked down at these stars, unlike most people, and I said, 'I'm never going to get one of these,"' Stamos said. "I never thought it a million years I would."

    Stamos thanked his fans, "who have been so supportive over the years."

    "I'm still amazed every time someone comes up to me and they say they've grown up with me or they've followed me since they were a kid," Stamos said.

    "I sort of hate to call them fans. They're more like friends and family," he said. "(You've) invited me into your homes for 27 years and allowed me to perform for you. I'm honored and I'm humbled for that."

    The Stamos' star, located at 7021 Hollywood Boulevard, is next to Dick Van Dyke, who played Albert Peterson in the original Broadway production of "Bye Bye Birdie," a role Stamos now plays on Broadway.

    Stamos' career has spanned more than 25 years, beginning with the hit soap “General Hospital.” He later segued to one of the most iconic family television programs playing “Uncle Jesse” on the popular ABC series “Full House.”

    He later appeared as Dr. Tony Gates on NBC's "ER" from 2005 until it ended its run in 2009.
