Di Pace, repped by Gersh and ICA Talent Management, will play Fernando, Kimmy’s (Barber) passionate ex-husband. Di Pace most recently played Jesus Christ in Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s A.D. The Bible Continues.
John Stamos, the erstwhile Uncle Jesse, is producing Fuller House, which will star Full House regulars Cameron-Bure, Lori Loughlin, Sweetin and Andrea Barber, with Stamos and Dave Coulier in guest spots.
