Back to Cast and Characters

Veteran actor John Slattery joins The WB as Peter Benedict, a brilliant businessman with questionable character, who both infuriates and flusters Grace McCallister (Christine Lahti) on the new drama Jack & Bobby.

Slattery most recently appeared in Mike Newell's Mona Lisa Smile and the HBO series K Street, produced by George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh. Other feature credits include Bad Company, with Anthony Hopkins, last year's Sundance Award-winner The Station Agent, Mirimax Films' Havana Nights, Soderbergh's Traffic, Sleepers, City Hall and Eraser.

Slattery's memorable television appearances include Sex and the City, From The Earth To The Moon, Will & Grace, Masterpiece Theatre's A Death in the Family and Ed. He is currently filming the A&E television movie The Brooke Ellison Story, directed by Christopher Reeve.

Slattery's last Broadway appearance was the revival of Harold Pinter's Betrayal, opposite Juliet Binoche. He made his Broadway debut opposite Nathan Lane in Neil Simon's Laughter on the 23rd Floor. His off-Broadway credits include The Extra Man, Night and Her Stars and Three Days of Rain, by Tony Award-winner Richard Greenberg.

Slattery currently resides in New York City.
