    Don't know the actor--but I'm sure he is fine and I wish him well. But a contract player when the show has other contract players (namely Genie Francis, for crying out loud!)who are underused. Don't understand the stops and starts of the show. Can't keep the new characters straight anyway. And the new "plotlines"? FORGET ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, this is all speculation, but it sounds like "Derek" will turn out to be Connie's boss at Crimson. His arrival will have some involvement in Connie's departure. Derek Wells will turn out to be a fake name, as he is actually a Jerome- and probably Ava's brother, who will be looking to rebuild the Jerome mafia family legacy. Of course, he will have a vendetta against Duke & Anna, as they were the ones who brought down the Jeromes back in the 80's. Not to mention lots of mafia wars to come with Sonny. Just guessing!

    I think he is Sam's father.
