Derek Hough Out On the Town in NYC (HQ Photos)

Well, Derek’s been a busy guy…hanging out with Jude Law?? That’s cool. According to the NY Daily News:

Law was certainly a leader or men after the Wednesday night screening when he hit the town with fellow British actor James Purefoy, “Dancing With the Stars” icon Derek Hough and model Sherita Dehon.

The group started at Chelsea “speakeasy” Bathtub Gin before moving to nightclub No. 8 for a nightcap. A clubgoer there tells us Law, again enjoying the opportunities available to aging male actors, was “surrounded by models.”

Before that it was the ABT 75th Anniversary Celebration…and I have more photos of that affair. :-)
