While Stamos and Van Dyke have never worked together on the big or small screen, they do share a role on the Broadway stage.

Van Dyke originated the role of Albert Pearson, the central character in the original Broadway production of Bye Bye Birdie in 1960. 

Nearly 50 years later, the play was given a revival, with Stamos portraying the iconic role of Albert Pearson.

The duo are also ‘neighbors’ of sorts, with their stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame literally right next to each other.

Van Dyke was awarded his star on the Walk of Fame back in February 1993, while Stamos’ star was awarded in November 2009.

Both of the actors’ stars reside outside 7201 Hollywood Blvd. in the heart of Hollywood, California.
