Port Charles is about to get a new resident in the form of daytime actor , who took to Facebook to announce that he has joined ABC’s only sudser in a contract role. “Finally! I just got word I can tell you I just finished my first day of work on ‘,’” the actor wrote. “It is a contract role. Very rare these days indeed. And I come to town as the character of Derek Willis.”

But what can we expect from the Port Charles newbie once he hits town? “Derek has an agenda, let me tell ya!” deVry teases of the character, who first appears onscreen on Tuesday, July 30. And considering the actor is known for his roles as “’s” devious rapist, Michael Cambias, and “’s” troubles Storm Logan, we can only guess that his new alter ego’s agenda won’t be a good one!
