Film actor Mario Van Peebles, who once appeared on the U.S. TV soap opera "One Life to Live," has joined the cast of ABC's "All My Children."
When Peebles first appears on the ABC hit series Jan. 29, he will be portraying prosecutor Samuel Woods, who encounters actress Susan Lucci's character on her talk show.
A recent ABC news release said the interaction of Woods and Erica Kane results in "a lot more than a spike in ratings: Samuel will soon become a nightmare, though one that could turn into a romance!"
The Web site said that in addition to appearing on "One Life" during the 1980s, Peebles has appeared on the small screen in series such as "Law & Order" and the FX drama "Damages."
