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.

Cloverleaf roll?

Sorry, couldn’t resist. 😉

Isn’t freedom of speech wonderful. Didn’t have my glasses on… I know what roll means!!! And I also know it should be role… But thanks for pointing that out… The attraction??? I like his acting and I loved his role on YR. As simple as that!!!

Good to have new characters/actors. Sasha’s beau? I guess we’ll see.

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 »

New man for Brooke and Katie…I feel a Bill/Brooke/Katie/new guy quadrangle coming. Haha but he would look good with Brooke or Katie!! He is gorgeous!!!! Can’t wait for this!!!

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 »

Newmanwins…the bottom line here is that Dylan aka Dullan is BORING, PERIOD!!!!! Y-e-p.

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.
