When Genesse last portrayed Rocco, he was involved with sisters Katie and Donna Logan in a bittersweet love triangle that included unrequited love, heroics, betrayal, and a proposal of marriage meant for one sister but mistakenly made to the other.  Viewers will be surprised to learn where Rocco has been all these years, how he’s stayed connected to the powerful Forrester family, and why he’s returned.  The episodes begin taping this week. "Truly, this is a homecoming for me.  Brad Bell is such a talented producer/ writer and he gave me my first big break by creating the role and casting me as Rocco Carner.  It's my privilege to go back home to 'B & B' to reprise my favorite role because I know the writers will make it an exhilarating roller coaster ride that I hope lasts a long, long time."

Genesse was busy in real life in the intervening years writing and producing and starring in action feature films like "The Alternate" for Nu Image, "Bad Guys," which he directed as well, and "Fire," during which he suffered severe injuries.  Genesse starred in HBO's "A Body to Die For" with Ben Affleck and co-starred in Fox's Blake Edwards' comedy, "Skin Deep," opposite John Ritter in the still infamous condom scene.  Genesse also starred in the prime time television series "Street Justice" for Stephen J. Cannell and "Cold Squad."  "I have been fortunate to work all over the world and to this day, fans in every country come up to me excited to see Rocco and ask about the show." 

Genesse and his actress/wife, Brooke Theiss Genesse, have also been happily busy raising son Mitchell, 13, and daughter Aubrey, 3 months.
