Season 1 M-Net (*101) 20:30
What do you do when your fiancé is a mastermind con artist who’s been scamming you? Worse yet, he’s the guy that your private-investigator firm has been looking for! That’s the messy storyline of drama The Catch (2016-current). Playing charismatic fraudster Benjamin Jones is Peter Krause, who is a familiar face to TV viewers…
Fifty-year-old Peter wasn’t the pro1
ducers’ first choice to play Ben. He was going to be played by newcomer Damon Dayoub, who was replaced by Peter after the pilot episode and a behind-the-scenes crew shake-up.
So where else have you seen him? 2
As Nate in drama Six Feet Under (2001-2005), Nick in drama Dirty Sexy Money (2007-2009) and Kevin in 23 episodes of sitcom Cybill (1995-1998).
Peter, who’s one of three kids, 3
can thank his teacher parents for helping him get this far in his career. They encouraged him to study and in 1990 he earned his Masters in Fine Arts, majoring in Acting, from the New York University’s programme at the Tisch School Of The Arts. He also has a degree in English Literature.
Before acting, Peter performed as 4
part of a travelling puppet show in his home state of Minnesota.
In case you’re wondering, his sur5
name is pronounced “Krow-Zuh”, with the “Krow” rhyming with “wow’.
He has a 15-year-old son named 6
Roman from his relationship with then-business manager Christine King.
Since 2010, he’s been dating his 7
Parenthood (2010-2015) co-star Lauren Graham (best known as Lorelei in Gilmore Girls, 2000-current), who played his onscreen sister Sarah. They met back in the ’90s but Peter says that “there was no spark then”.
