CNN anchor and prolific tweeter Jake Tapper is ready for his close-up.
In 10 days, the newsman will make his acting debut on the revived online-only version of All My Children, which airs both on Hulu’s “The Online Network” imprint and Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network.
Naturally, he’ll be playing a reporter – specifically, one named Spencer Phillips who works for the generic-sounding Business News Update. (Then again, AMC’s hometown is called Pine Valley…)
Apparently, Tapper’s casting wasn’t premeditated – as The Wrap writes, the Washington correspondent was “discovered” by AMC’s producers while filming a segment for The Lead about the soap’s revival. Only in (Internet) Hollywood!
