While character and storyline details aren’t available at this time, actor Chris McKenna tweeted earlier this evening, “It appears I’ll be making a bit of a return to soaps. At least for a few episodes.” He tagged CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” in the tweet to his followers.
Last appearing in daytime in 1993, when his three year stint as Joey Buchanan on ABC’s “One Life to Live” concluded, McKenna has appeared in episodes of numerous primetime shows including “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Rizzoli & Isles,” and more recently TV Land’s “The Exes.” McKenna had a recurring role on The CW’s “90210″ from 2011-2013. In 2014, he can be seen in the features “Off the Grid” and “Blind Pass.”
A rep for the drama series was unavailable for comment at press time.
Sean Douglas (ex-Vargas, “Days of our Lives”) announced that he’s booked a role on TV Land’s “The Exes.” The actor will portray Doug in a future episode of the series, which stars Kristen Johnston, Donald Faison, Wayne Knight and David Alan Basche.
Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that Sal Stowers (short for Saleisha Stowers) has been cast in the role of Cassandra Foster, the adopted daughter of Angela Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), who the good doctor found abandoned in a dumpster during her run on ABC’s “The City” back in the mid-1990′s. The character returned as an 18 year-old seeking comfort from mommy dearest in 2008 as portrayed by Yaya DaCosta.
