Lucci

The impending end of "All My Children" hasn't slowed the show's experimental spirit. Beginning Thursday, Susan Lucci will, for the first time in 41 years, play a role besides Erica Kane.

Lucci will also appear as Jane Campbell, a doppelganger of Kane's who wreaks havoc on her life.

"All My Children" is scheduled to go off the air in September.
