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.

@Jen: Upset Michael Muhney was fired for sexually harassing Hunter King?

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!

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

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

DWTS new EP Andrew Llinares, then said in a statement. “We’ve got a great and diverse cast. We are excited about the season,”

You can see Bergeron’s tweet in full below.

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
