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?

David

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

Mo

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.

Cheryl

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.

Sue

Well he is easy to look at, I’d like to see him with sharon she needs someone other than a Newman.. not Adam recast..

Sharonda

He better not be ADAM. Well it really doesn’t matter anyway, lol. I won’t be watching it after Jan 30th. FREE MM!

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, but he misstepped and if he didn’t and this is just smoke they are blowing in our face in time it will all come out. And Billy Miller left on his own accord no one fired him he is another great actor who should be doing greater things that sometimes soap operas can hinder you from doing. Please stop looking for a person to blame it was both of their choices including Michelle (Phyllis) to leave or do something stupid and get fired. Sorry if I offend anyone, but that is not my intentions. 🙂

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 watching
we won’t know what’s next I can’t wait

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
