Michael Nouri joins 'All My Children'

Erica Kane is getting a new man. ABC's "Brothers & Sisters" and "Damages" star Michael Nouri has been cast of "All My Children." The film, television and stage actor will be playing the role of Caleb McGraw.

"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", executive producer, Julie Hanan Carruthers, said in a statement. "It is with great pleasure that we welcome Michael Nouri to the 'All My Children' family."

In story, Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) finds herself in a rather precarious position as her airplane crashes on a mountain side, destroying a remote home owned by a recluse mountain man named Caleb McGraw (Michael Nouri). Clearly not happy that Erica's plane destroyed his home, Caleb offers Erica minimal to no help, leaving her in her high heels in the forest to fend for herself. Nouri's first airdate as Caleb will be on Monday, May 24.

Nouri has enjoyed a long career spanning film, television and theatre. Currently he can be seen in the hit drama "Damages," opposite Glenn Close, and in the feature film "The Proposal," starring Sandra Bullock. He has major recurring roles on ABC's "Brothers & Sisters" and "The OC." He may be best known for his role in the breakout film "Flashdance." On stage Nouri starred on Broadway opposite Julie Andrews in "Victor/Victoria."

Aside from acting, Nouri serves as ambassador to the Multiple Sclerosis Society and to the Seeds of Peace charity.

"All My Children" celebrated its 40th anniversary in January of this year with a two-part special episode that included returning fan favorites Kelly Ripa, Mark Conseulous, Eva La Rue, James Mitchell, Taylor Miller, Eden Reigel and Levin Rablin.

"All My Children" airs weekdays on ABC and weeknights on SOAPnet.
