McKenna made the announcement on Twitter along with a picture of himself outside the CBS Studios complex: “First day of work on a new gig. I could swear I’ve been here before. #YR #BB @BandB_CBS #AcrossTheHall.”

He later tweeted that, “the confusion on everyone’s face as I walk down the hall is priceless,” mentioning former Y&R co-stars Doug Davidson (Paul), Steve Burton (Dylan) and Joshua Morrow (Nicholas).
McKenna started out playing a by-the-book Genoa City police detective on Y&R in 2014. The following year, his character was abruptly cast as the killer in a murder mystery that began with the demise of Noah’s (Robert Adamson) fiance Courtney (Kelli Gross).
Whether he’ll be playing a good guy or a bad guy on The Bold and the Beautiful remains to be seen. However, now that McKenna has a new soap lease on life, let’s just hope he doesn’t kill anybody.
