Juan Pablo di Pace to star as Jesus in NBC series A.D.

Juan Pablo di Pace will star as Jesus in NBC's sequel to The Bible, titled A.D.

Juan Pablo recently starred as Nicolás Treviño on TNT's Dallas, see his new photo above from NBC.

A.D. is a 12 episode series from executive producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey who also produced The Bible for the History Channel.

A.D. begins after the resurrection of Christ, and follows the lives of King Herod's family, Roman politicians, temple priests, and the disciples.

"These disciples, after Jesus dies and resurrects, the Holy Spirit comes upon them and there is only one way for them–that's spreading the good news of Jesus," Burnett told Forbes Magazine in an earlier interview.

He adds, "What a drama."

A.D. is scheduled to premiere on Easter Sunday 2015
