It is a bit of ‘where are they now?’, but actor Chris McKenna is on his way back to the daytime soaps, if not for a short time, according to his Twitter account.

McKenna played Joey Buchanan from1990 to 1993 on One Life to Live, the role that was also played by Castle’s Nathan Fillion!

Now, the actor is coming to CBS’ The Young and the Restless for a few episodes according to a series of tweets from him that said: “It appears I’ll be making a bit of a return to soaps. At least for a few episodes. #theyoungandtherestless.  Seems I’ll be making a return to soaps, if only briefly.

More recently, Chris appeared another soap, the CW’s 90210 in the role of Patrick.

So, the big question, who will McKenna play when he makes his way to Genoa City?  Any guesses? And, do you remember him from his days as Joey in Llanview?  Let us know!

Loving the new faces on the Y&R

This guy is 100x hotter than Nathan Fillion.

I get it that he is a nice guy but I don’t understand why so many women are obsessed over him. He’s average at best.

Back in the day, he was just a little chubbier and boyish. They replaced him with Nathan Fillion because my god he was hot then. Now he’s eh.

Then something drastic has happened in the last two decades, because he was certainly a good actor when he was on One Life to Live (of course he was pretty young then). I have not seen anything he might have done since.

Y&R has become an ABC soap now. What an utter mess. Braeden wants a weak actor to play Adam, so here he is.

Oh yeah, because EB has so much power he writes his own scripts and now is casting actors to make him look good.
Some people need to seriously chill out.
The MM fanatics will no doubt start a letter writing campaign to get rid of this guy and probably blame MM’s problems on him.
Here’s a conspiracy theory they’ll like, Chris and EB dreamed up this whole plot to get rid of MM so Chris could have the job. LMAO
Where do I donate for the next banner? LOL!

I doubt he will be the new Adam- he said his role would be “brief” and didn’t the tptb say when they fired MM they were giving the character a rest for 3 to 4 months. Y&R doesn’t tape that far in advance. My guess he has something to do with that company that makes the pills that Summer OD on. Or maybe he is connected to Kelly’s past– her ex husband maybe?

He was charming as the last teen Joey before OLTL SORAS’d him. Be interested to watch him now, 2 decades later!

Tired of all the new faces/characters. Maybe he’s Kelly’s ex.

Of course I remember him as Joey. I think he was on during the BIlly Douglas coming out as gay story. He was great as Joey. It will be great to see him now as a grown man. I can’t wait.

Yes I remember him. It will be great to see the handsome young man again. I watch GH with Star, Todd, & John. They can keep bringing back as many of the good soap actors as they want.

I am so tired of hearing about Michael Muhney yes he is a terrific actor and I absolutely love him as Adam, but we are mad at everyone regarding his firing but him. If this is true and he did this to Hunter (Summer). I am sorry he should be fired. It is easy for us to act like we know this great actor and judge him on his talent and say oh no young and the restless didn’t fire him, but wrong is wrong. Every actor can be replaced when wrong is done. Will me miss him Hell ya,… Read more »

I enjoy this show and it doesn’t matter if they change the actors it still is a great way to spend the hour. Some times we want to throw things at the screen and sometimes we want to cry . the writers have a job to do I think they do the best they can. I will continue to watch because it is so entertaining and you got to love the way they can put Adam in a snow bank thrown from the vehicle that just only happens on a soap and Connor can still have his Daddy Let’s keep… Read more »
