Jake Tapper has a new gig to add to his resume: soap opera actor.
The CNN host will make a guest appearance on "All My Children," playing —what else? — an investigative reporter named Spencer Phillips. He previewed a clip of his cameo on his CNN show "The Lead" during a segment about the revival of canceled daytime soaps.
"It was going to be a stretch playing a pushy reporter, but I was up for the challenge," Tapper joked. He will appear on the August 19 episode.
