For six years, Sam Jaeger was a part of the family on NBC\u2019s Parenthood. Since Parenthood ended in 2015, it\u2019s been harder to see Sam Jaeger, although he was in four episodes of The Handmaid\u2019s Tale, the first season of Tell Me a Story and the mini-series Law & Order: True Crime – The Menendez Murders.
You\u2019ll be able to see Sam Jaeger once again on CBS All Access\u2019s Why Women Kill this week. Sam Jaeger as Rob of the CBS All Access series WHY WOMEN KILL | Ali Goldstein\/CBS Jaeger tells Showbiz Cheat Sheet that he worked hard to land the role in Why Women Kill. Jaeger plays Robert Stanton, the husband of Beth Ann (Ginnifer Goodwin) in the 1960s.
As the title suggests, she may have a reason to kill him, just as Lucy Liu and Kirby Howell-Baptiste play women who find reasons to kill their husbands. Why Women Kill premieres Thursday, August 15 on CBS All Access. Sam Jaeger liked putting in time auditioning for \u2018Why Women Kill\u2019 Many actors may dread the audition grind, and once you\u2019ve been on a hit show perhaps one hopes to get a straight offer.
Sam Jaeger wanted to work for Why Women Kill. Sam Jaeger as Rob; Ginnifer Goodwin as Beth-Ann of the CBS All Access series WHY WOMEN KILL | Ali Goldstein\/CBS \u201cI gotta earn every job I get, man,\u201d Jaeger said. \u201cI\u2019m thankful to say, I had to work for this role. I\u2019m glad I did because I know when I got it that I\u2019d earned it.
\u201d Now Sam Jaeger knows he was the only choice for \u2018Why Women Kill\u2019 It turns out, getting an offer can make an actor more insecure. \u201cAny time you\u2019re offered a role, you go onto set thinking, \u2018Am I really the person they wanted?\u2019\u201d Jaeger said. \u201cWhen you go onto a show that you know you\u2019re the choice, it changes everything.
I auditioned for this and I beat out other actors.\u201d Ginnifer Goodwin, Sam Jaeger during the WHY WOMEN KILL panel for TCA Summer Press Tour | Francis Specker\/CBS Marc Cherry created Why Women Kill. Just as he discovered Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria and reinvented Teri Hatcher and Felicity Huffman in Desperate Housewives, Cherry had a keen eye for the lead roles in Why Women Kill.
\u201cSo when I walked on the set I knew exactly what Marc wanted and what I was contributing,\u201d Jaeger said. \u201cIt made it just easier, and made it so much more fun for me to enjoy it instead of constantly thinking in the back of my mind, \u2018Would they have rather had Actor A for this?\u2019 I just go to work every day so thankful.
\u201d Marc Cherry had to talk Sam Jaeger through \u2018Why Women Kill\u2019 Desperate Housewives was the first of its kind, a soapy murder mystery comedy. Why Women Kill has some of those tones, as well as three different time periods – the \u201860s, \u201880s and modern-day. It\u2019s a lot to absorb in an audition.
