Image Credit: Martin Roe/RetnaABC announced today that Michael Nouri (Brothers & Sisters, Damages) will join the cast of All My Children. He’ll play the role of Caleb McGraw, a man who Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) encounters after her airplane crashes into his remote, mountainside home. As a result, Nouri’s character is in no mood to help the diva while she fends for herself in the forest.

Nouri’s first airdate is May 24. “We look forward to working with Mr Nouri as he uses his vast experience and talent to bring the unique and complex character of Caleb McGraw to life,” says executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers in a statement.
