A Hudson Valley barber is making his dreams come true and will be on the next new episode of Blue Bloods.

Derek Henriksen, a 23-year old barber from Saugerties, will make his television debut on a new episode of Blue Bloods on CBS.

Henriksen is a master barber at Union Shave in Saugerties. He described himself as being a goofball in school, who always did impressions.

He ended up taking some acting classes, and landed himself in a class taught by Vincent Pastore, who we all know as Salvatore "Big Pussy" Bonpensiero from the Sopranos.

Henriksen and Pastore ended up becoming friends, and Pastore put him in contact with a friend who was an agent, which has led to him getting on Blue Bloods.

Henriksen will play a criminal in the upcoming episode titled "Ripple Effect" which is the 13th episode of the 9th season, and will air on Friday, Feb. 1.

Congratulations to Henriksen, and good luck with your acting career.
