Concerned about the state of Danny Tanner’s sex life? Fear not. Fuller House is currently casting for the role of his new wife Teri, an attractive and lively younger (40) black woman who has “quite an appetite for Danny and isn’t afraid to shower him with affection.”

Also doing just fine in that department is Kimmy. The production is looking for someone to play her “inappropriately passionate” ex-husband Fernando, who wants to get back together. [TVLine]
