CNN's Jake Tapper to Make Acting Debut on 'All My Children'

He'll be playing — what else? — a reporter

It's been a good week for CNN's "The Lead" host Jake Tapper. First, he was voted one of TheHill.com's 50 Most Beautiful People in Washington, D.C. (he came in an #11), and now he's set to make his acting debut on online soap opera "All My Children."

Tapper was on the set to film a segment for "The Lead" about the soap's return in online format. Apparently, they liked him so much they convinced him to stick around Pine Valley as "Spencer Phillips," a reporter from the fictional show "Business News Update." Sounds like Tapper's got a cushier job than Phillips.

Tapper's big debut will air on Monday, August 12. In other news personality cameo news, Charlie Rose will appear on the second-to-last episode of "Breaking Bad." Fox News' Shepard Smith has been rallying for a role on "True Blood," but so far he's come up empty.
