Lucci will play the wife of a retired general. Look for Lucci's character to give Kim Delaney's character, Claudia, advice on how to deal with a potential new rival played by 'Lie to Me' actress Kelli Williams.
Lucci will appear in at least two episodes of the hit drama's sixth season. Williams will appear in at least seven.
'All My Children' ended its run on ABC in September. The soap is set to move online in early 2012 with fellow ABC castoff 'One Life to Live.'
While not officially confirmed, it seems like Lucci has declined Prospect Park's offer to stay with the soap.
Lucci and Delaney share a soap opera past. Delaney played Jenny Gardner on 'All My Children' in the early 1980s.
