Some actors like to take a break after six seasons of a successful TV show, but not Peter Krause. The actor played Adam for six years on the critically acclaimed family drama “Parenthood” until January, and he already set his sights on another drama, ABC’s “The Catch.” However, the Shonda Rhimes-produced show will be very different from his prior role.
As Adam, Krause played the uptight, responsible eldest child of the Braverman clan. The businessman was a moral and compassionate person. According to Entertainment Weekly, his new character isn’t so uptight. Krause will portray the bad guy in “The Catch,” a con artist named Kieran Booth.
“The Catch” follows Alice Vaughn (Mireille Enos), a fraud investigator who is conned by her own fiancé Kieran. He disappears one night, leaving her broke and wanting vengeance. Krause’s character is “a successful, long-time con man who lives the good life with other people’s money." EW teases that he’s the "best at what he does." However, the question is whether or not he can beat Alice Vaughan.
Watch the trailer for “The Catch” below:
Krause was a replacement for Damon Dayoub, according to TV Line. The network decided to recast a couple of roles after “The Catch” was ordered to series. The role of Kieran's wife Zoe, previously played by Bethany Joy Lenz, will also be recast soon.
“The Catch” does not have a premiere date yet, but it will debut midseason after “How to Get Away With Murder” Season 2 wraps up. It will likely serve as the third hour of ABC’s programming on Thursdays, following Shonda Rhimes’ other hits, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal.”
“The Catch” will premiere in 2016 on ABC. Are you excited to see Krause play a villain? Sound off in the comments section below!
