After terrorizing Genoa City for half the year with everyone wondering who killed some of “The Young and the Restless'” most beautiful people, actor Chris McKenna (ex-Detective Mark Harding) announced that he’ll next appear on an upcoming episode of CBS’ “NCIS: New Orleans.”

“Seems the New Orleans PD needed some added muscle. Copy that. Officer Tate en route,” wrote McKenna on Twitter yesterday using the NOLA hashtag and handle.

In addition to his stint on “Y&R,” McKenna is probably best known for his stint as Joey Buchanan on ABC’s “One Life to Live” in the early 1990’s. He’s also appeared in episodes of “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “Criminal Minds.” He starred alongside Katherine Heigl in last seasons failed “State of Affairs.”

An air date has not been set for McKenna’s appearance on “NCIS: New Orleans,” which airs Tuesdays at 9:00 PM ET/8:00 PM CT on CBS.
