"Bones" is bringing in a soap-opera star to help deal with relationship woes. Greg Rikaart has been cast to guest-star in episode 2 of Season 9.

Rikaart, best known for playing Kevin on "The Young and the Restless," will appear in the couples-counseling episode of "Bones" (according to Soap Opera Digest). The actor broke the news that he had been working on the "Bones" set recently. "I'm having a blast working on 'Bones,'" Rickaart said in an interview. "Such a welcoming, talented group of people here, and this story is amazing. It's a fun character too, who is so different from Kevin."

While Rickaart didn't give any details about his specific role, it's likely that he will be involved in a plot about marriage counseling. Episode 2 has Brennan ( Emily Deschanel) and Booth ( David Boreanaz) going undercover to a couples' retreat in order to investigate a murder. John Ratzenberger ( "Cheers") is also scheduled to appear in this episode.

"Bones" Season 9 premieres on Monday, Sept. 16, with Rickaart's episode following a week later.
