Michael Nouri (Caleb McGraw, AMC)Read with caution. Contains scoopage!

All My Children may be losing one silver fox in the form of David Canary, but they are gaining another. Tall, handsome Michael Nouri (think the "knight in shining armor in "Flashdance") has been cast on All My Children in the role of Caleb McGraw, it was announced by Brian Frons, president, Daytime, Disney/ABC Television Group.

In the 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.

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

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 recurring roles on "Crash," "NCIS" and "Army Wives," and had major recurring roles on ABC's "Brothers & Sisters" and "The OC." He also appeared in the feature films "Invincible," with Mark Wahlberg and Greg Kinnear, "Boynton Beach Club," opposite Dyan Cannon and directed by Susan Seidelman, and in the upcoming "Sinatra Club."

Film work includes "The Terminal," "Last Holiday," starring Queen Latifah, Billy Crystal's "61*," "High Roller: The Stu Unger Story," "Lovely and Amazing," "Finding Forrester," opposite Sean Connery, "Easy Rider: The Ride Back," "Goodbye Columbus," "Davinci's Way," "The Imagemaker," "Gobots," "Chameleon," "Fatal Sky," "Total Exposure," "Black Ice," "Fortunes of War," "To the Limit," "Flashdance" and "The Hidden," for which he won the Best Actor Award at the Avoriaz Film Festival.

Nouri has guest starred on "Legend of the Seeker," "Privileged," "Without a Trace," "CSI: NY," "South Beach," "Enterprise," "Cold Case," "The Practice," "The West Wing," "Law & Order," "SVU," and "Criminal Intent." He played the lead role of Lucky Luciano in the highly-rated series "The Gangster Chronicles," and received an Emmy nomination for "Search for Tomorrow." He starred in the ABC pilot "Empire State," "Bay City Blues," "Love and War," "Downtown," and "Beacon Hill," and in the title role of the series "The Curse of Dracula." Additional television work includes "The Doris Duke Story," "Rage of Angels," opposite Jaclyn Smith," "The Last Convertible," "Contract on Cherry Street," supporting Frank Sinatra, "Shattered Dreams," the title role in "Quiet Victory: The Charlie Wedemeyer Story," "Between Two Women," "The Story Continues," "Danielle Steele's Changes," "In the Arms of a Killer," "Psychic," "Exclusive," "The Sands of Time," "Between Love and Honor" and "Eyes of Terror," with Barbara Eden.
