Jesse McCartneyFormer All My Children child star, grammy nominated actor/singer, Jesse McCartney, has just been recruited for the recurring role of Private Tim Truman on the seventh season of Army Wives.

McCartney makes the third All My Children veteran actor to star on the series.  Kim Delaney (ex Jenny, AMC - -who is expected to exit Army Wives in the upcoming season), Susan Lucci (Erica, AMC) and now McCartney. 

This is one reason why Soapdom believes strongly in the power of daytime television.  It feeds actors, well trained on camera actors, into the primetime and feature film funnell... but we digress.

THR broke the story of McCartney's latest role today.  According to their report, his character "is a young, eager and enthusiastic soldier determined to prove himself on his first deployment."  He is married to his high school sweetheart, farm girl Holly Truman (played by new series regular, Elle McLemore.)

In 1998, McCartney got his start on All My Children as J.R. Chandler, the son of ruthless tycoon Adam Chandler (David Canary) and Dixie Martin (Cady McClain).  He remained in the role through 2000, when storyline dictated aging the character.

Along with voicing characters in a number of games and animated projects, McCartney has also starred on prime time series Summerland and Greek among others.
