Who is Rachel Ticotin’s husband Peter Strauss?
Peter Lawrence Strauss was born on the 20th February 1947, in Croton-on-Hudson, New York State USA, and is a five-time Golden Globe Award-nominated actor, perhaps best known to the world for his roles in the films “The Jericho Mile” (1979) as Larry ‘Rain’ Murphy, and “Nick of Time” in 1995 as Brendan Grant, and “xXx: State of the Union” (2005), as President James Sanford, among other differing roles he has secured so far in his rather rich acting career.
Peter Strauss Bio: Early Life, Parents, and Education
Of German-Jewish ancestry, Peter is the son of Warren B. Strauss, a wine importer, while the identity of his mother remains unknown to the media. He went to Hackley School, from which he matriculated in 1965, then enrolled at Northwestern University, from which he graduated four years later.
Right after college Peter started looking for his debut role, and it didn’t take him long to acquire a part in David Miller’s Golden Globe Award-nominated “Hail, Hero!” (1969), starring Michael Douglas, Arthur Kennedy and Teresa Wright. He continued with supporting roles in the westerns “Soldier Blue” (1970), and “The Man Without a Country” with Cliff Robertson and Beau Bridges. It was in 1976 that he got his first recurring role, as Rudy Jordache in the TV series “Rich Man, Poor Man”, and his next role was the lead in the biopic about Joe Kennedy, entitled “Young Joe, the Forgotten Kennedy” in 1977, which was enough to secure him one of his most prominent roles, as Larry ‘Rain’ Murphy in Michael Mann’s film “The Jericho Mile”.
Rise to Prominence
Throughout the ‘80s, Peter enjoyed success by appearing in numerous television films, starting with the fantasy film “Angel on My Shoulder” in 1980 in which he starred with Richard Kiley and Barbara Hershey, and then in 1985 in the TV mini-drama series “Tender Is the Night”, while the following year he was the star of the television thriller film “Under Siege”. Unfortunately, the one breakthrough role that would launch Peter to prominence just didn’t come his way, and he continued with television films, but nevertheless, in the ‘90s he portrayed some of the most memorable characters of this decade. He was Wayne Stracton in the film “83 Hours ‘til Dawn” in 1990, then Ed MacAffrey in “Men Don’t Tell” in 1993, Sam Yates in “Reunion”, and Brendan Grant in the critically acclaimed action drama film “Nick of Time” (1995), starring John Depp, Christopher Walke, and Courtney Chase. He was Dr. Nicholas Moloney in the TV series “Moloney”, and in 1998 played Dr. Sam Sheppard in the film “My Father’s Shadow: The Sam Sheppard Story”. He ultimately got his one big role, as La Hire in the highly-praised TV mini-series “Joan of Arc”.
Career Decline and Stage Work
With the start of the new millennium, Peter’s career started declining somewhat, and the roles became fewer as the years passed. Then he made a breakthrough with the part of President James Sanford in the action film “xXx: State of the Union”, starring Willem Dafoe, Samuel L. Jackson, and Ice Cube, but since then he hasn’t had much success on screen, with the exception of the film “License to Wed” in 2007, with Robin Williams, Mandy Moore and John Krasinski in the lead roles, and in recent years in the films “Sugar Daddies” (2014), in which he had a lead role next to Taylor Black and James C. Burns. He also appeared in the critically acclaimed historical drama film “Operation Finale”, with Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley as the stars.
He hasn’t been active on stage in recent years, but made his stage debut in 1981 in the play “Einstein and the Polar Bear”, and since then has featured in a number of plays, including “The Mind with the Dirty Man”, “A Cry of Players”, while recently he was Leonardo da Vinci in the play “Divine Rivalry, and Sigmund Freud in “Sabina”.
Peter Strauss Net Worth
Since launching his career, Peter has appeared in over 80 film and TV titles, the majority of which were films made directly for television, plus stage performances. Some of the projects increased his popularity, and most his net worth, while some failed to make a positive impact on his career.
So, have you ever wondered how rich Peter Strauss is, as of late-2018? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Strauss’ net worth is as high as $5 million. Pretty impressive don’t you think?
Do You Know About Peter’s Personal Life, Affairs, Marriage, Divorce, Wife, Children?
Peter has been quite open about the ups and downs that happen to him behind the camera. He has been married three times and divorced twice, firstly to Beverly Baker Paulding from 1973 until 1979. Four years later he married Nicole Fons, and that marriage lasted for 11 years before the two decided to divorce, however, not before they welcomed two children. It now seems that the prominent actor has found happiness with the actress Rachel Ticotin, as the couple has been together since marrying in 1998. In addition to acting, Peter is a successful businessman; he owns a citrus production business, and sits on the board of the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden.
