Fantastic news from Mr. McKenna himself!  The former Y&R favorite where he played Detective Harding – who turned out to have a murderous streak in him – has found a new soap home with Y&R’s sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful!

McKenna, who first came known to soap fans in his younger days as Joey Buchanan on One Life to Live, tweeted a photo showing just where his next acting gig is located … none other than his old stomping grounds at CBS Television City!

In his clever deja-vu tweet, Chris related: “First day of work on a new gig. “I could swear I’ve been here before. #YR #BB @BandB_CBS #AcrossTheHall”

Just what role Chris will take on, and who he will play in story with is yet to be revealed by the reps at The Bold and the Beautiful, but stay tuned.

B&B does not need new faces. With Julius and Vivian moving to L.A. the Avants now becoming a mainstay “core” family, and bringing in Sasha to further complicate things, the last thing the show needs is more new faces right now.

I would normally agree with you, Jimmy, EXCEPT that is new face is Chris McKenna…and he is delicious.

Like, when you are pretty full from dinner EXCEPT there is always room for pie…a yummy, perfectly made pie named Chris McKenna 🙂

I would agree with you too but Brooke “needs” a love interest.

I would get excited, but I am sure he will be wasted. He will probably have to be Brooke’s new LUST interest.

I thought that too… Brooke’s new man!!! I would welcome whatever he does!!!

Glad to hear this. I was very disappointed when Y&R let him go. One of the few on there that can act.

Sorry, couldn’t resist. 😉

B&B already has way to many cast members and they only seem to use a handful of the cast. I wish the actor all the best and that he does not get put onto a back burner story.

I heard he will be hooked up with one of the Logan girls, Bring back Donna Logan (Jennifer Gareis) for him lol or give him to Brooke

Chris McKenna’s talents were wasted on Y&R, but I’m not sure he’ll fare too well on B&B either. The last thing the show needs right now is more newbies, when there are already cast members who are rarely seen and have little story (Deacon, Quinn, Carter, Donna etc.)

sarah
Guest

usually I would absolutely agree that the cast has reached its limit & they should just make the call to expand B&B to an hour (wishful thinking lol). However looking at the storylines I can see a new cast member working. The Liam/Steffy/Wyatt/Ivy quad probably has maybe 4months of life left in it, if that because B&B tends to move faster than the other soaps. Caroline’s baby storyline while yes CaRidge are off screen a lot, that will be coming to ahead in the next 4-5months give or take. There will most likely be a lot more real estate &… Read more »

Wow, that’s wonderful news, I hope they pair him with Brooke Logan. Brooke needs a new man in her life. Chris is a wonderful actor and hot too LOL.

happy for him but boy did Y&R waste him. I thought he had massive potential of being a big star. He can act better than a lot of the other newbies at Y&R. making him a killer of dayplayers that nobody cared about was so stupid

Congratulations to Chris. I loved him as young Joey Buchanan on One Life to Live and he did a terrific job as Detective Harding on Y&R. It’s great to see what a handsome man he has grown into. I was very sorry to see him go. The GCPD is in desperate need of staff. I hope his new gig uses him properly and keeps him around a long time.

Mollie

Well said. Agree with all. If B&B has too many characters, I hope they shed a couple boring ones and write interesting stories for Chris McKenna. He can act and is pretty charismatic 🙂

Take care, bro. Peace.

Great news! He is so damn hot, Y&R was stupid for letting him go and killing off Harding. Kevin and Harding would have been FIRE!

But I hope he is for Brooke, she needs a hot new stud! I will have to actually watch B&B when he is on!

This is awesome he could be whats going to shake up Katie/Bill/Brooke 2.0 I’m absolutely all for it

bring back Nick (Jack wagner) for Brooke or katie or even Quinn conflict. He and Brooke have this poor kid together (sort of) who has no mom..seems like a lot of already story there…also soras kid so he and a returned RJ have conflict.

Richard
Guest

It does seem interesting that Nick Marine hasn’t been brought back. Katie was involved with him years ago and he would definitely be a formidable rival for Bill. And they could age Jack and mine PLENTY of story!!!!!

Mark Y
Guest

Great idea. This he was very likable on Y&R. That being said, B&B’s writers seem to be able to write one story at a time. He’ll make an entrance an engage with his story characters and they he’ll disappear until it’s that story’s turn again. Can be very boring.

Chrystie_Delancey
Guest
Chrystie_Delancey

Yeah, once you have been employed for stud service (for Brooke), you are pretty much put to pasture. Say, speaking of those characters that have bedded Brooke, where is Oliver these days? Another FINE wasted actor and character.

McKenna was one of the very few enjoyable parts of Y&R in 14-15. Harding was a entertaining beleiveable cop who got thrown under the bus in that Marco farce so JFP could rush her golden boy, Dullan, into Harding’s role as Paul’s lead cop. The problem is Dullan is a boring unrealistic cop. B&B has been horrible since mid 2015. The writing is worse than ever the show’s back to being cartoonish. I just hope and pray McKenna isn’t wasted into any of these kiddie triangles. Liam/Steffy/Wyatt/Ivy is just flat out bad while Nicole/Zende/Sasha is just boring. The best place… Read more »

I am soooo happy to read this. He is such a great actor and Y & R made one big mistake in letting him go. I was actually hoping they would play the old twin brother and bring him back to Y & R. The stories they could have had with him & Abby & even Marissa. I’m glad to see that B & B know what a great actor he is. Watch out Ridge you have some competition with him in the picture for that matter so does Bill.

I recall his first episode on OLTL. I believe he was brought on as a slightly SORAS’d Joey with a newly recast Kevin and Jessica. I remember them coming home to Llanview with Clint and Viki being in a wheelchair. Anyone else recall that?

Didn’t he play Joey when Ryan Philippe (sp) was playing Billy Douglas?

Eww, can we just have Brooke NOT taint one of the males on this show?? For ONCE I would love it if a man looked her up and down and said “NOPE.” He deserves better than to be one more notch on her bedpost.

RIGHT ON, Ashleigh!!!!! I hope and pray to G-O-D that TPTB of B&B do N-O-T put that RUGGEDLY DREAMY Chris McKenna (onscreen-wise and everything) with Katherine Kelly Lang’s Brooke!!!!! N-O!!!!!!!!!!!!

Take care, Ashleigh. Peace.

Oh Ashleigh I couldn’t agree more. She is as bad as Bill very self centered in their worlds. However if he is for Katie I hope Chris’s character is and treats her like gold.

He is probably going to play a small role as a Doctor who finds out Liam has a blood clot on his brain. I mean he threw Winsor Harmon away and now it seams Sean Kanan is gone again. Face it we are stuck with triangles and having your brother/sister’s baby on this show.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ “

Wersching’s first major role cam as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall  (Kelly Monaco) and wound up as lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

Photo: ABC

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
