CNN’s Jake Tapper to Pine Valley

CNN’s “The Lead” hid the big news in paragraph 17 of a story published on CNN.com Monday night about soaps returning from the dead.

And oh, they are. But what, they had to make Jake Tapper‘s upcoming appearance on ABC’s “All My Children” the Buried Lead? The news anchor will play TV investigative reporter “Spencer Phillips.” For acting advice, Tapper went to Torsten Kaye who plays “Zach Slater.”

Tapper’s appearance is scheduled for August 19.

Watch a preview here. Soap Opera Network and WeLoveSoaps.net also had the news last night.
