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”.
