'DWTS' Pro Val Chmerkovskiy Is So Excited About His 'Fuller House' Role: 'It Was a Bucket List Thing to Check

Val Chmerkovskiy may have caught the acting bug!
The Dancing with the Stars pro dished to ET on Monday about his upcoming episode of Fuller House, where he and his brother, Maksim, play DJ and Stephanie Tanner's love interests!
"The show was so much fun to work on," Chmerkovskiy revealed. "I'd love to transition into acting, it's a passion of mine."
And as it turns out, for the 29-year-old dancer, Fuller House was a fitting way to break into the business.
"I grew up watching Full House, and for me, it was a bucket list thing to check off," Chmerkovskiy explained.
Of course, with DWTS, the dance pro has become quite the TV star in his own right. As season 20's Mirror Ball champion, Chmerkovskiy's partner, Rumer Willis, posted a sweet, lengthy message of gratitude in August, writing, "I am truly grateful to call you my friend and I am so proud that we won together, I wouldn't have wanted to do it with anyone else. I can't wait to root for you next season. Love to you always."

Meanwhile, Chmerkovskiy got a lot more than he bargained for during Switch Week recently, when new partner Bindi Irwin brought a live python into rehearsal.
Watch him get understandably shaken by the gargantuan creature in the video below.
