Derek Theler, born in 1986, in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA, is an American actor and model.

Theler started his acting career in 2009, starring in several minor roles in TV series such as “The Middle,” “Cougartown,” and “The Hills”. He also auditioned for “Captain America” but wasn’t cast.

In 2012, Theler landed his first recurring role when he was cast in the ABC Family comedy, “Baby Daddy”, playing the brother (and roommate) of a guy who finds out he’s a father when someone drops a baby off on their doorstep.

In between acting gigs, Theler appeared as a model in TV commercials. He first landed the coveted “Coke Zero” Commercial in 2009. This then followed by a campaign for “State Farm”, in which he played a hot guy who is ‘sensitive’ and has a ‘dark side.’

For fun, Theler enjoys playing football, swimming and riding his motorcycle.
