Dominic Morgan in “Devils”
Patrick Dempsey stars as Dominic Morgan, who has a trim build and an icy gaze, and is the CEO at NYL, in the series “Devils” on The CW. Upper-middle class American family, married to Nina (Kasia Smutniak), heiress of a noble family. Friend of ministers and government leaders, he is one of the most powerful men in global finance. Even more unbending after the death of his son John, killed in the Afghanistan war, Dominic recognized Massimo’s talent and groomed him for the financial world.
