Benjamin JonesPlayed by Peter Krause
CHRISTOPHER HALL a/k/a BENJAMIN JONES is a wealthy, high-tech-assisted, high-flying James Bond-like international super-criminal - a man of a thousand faces, voices, and identities - who works with and takes assignments from his partner, Margot. Ben (and Margot's) crimes are all high-end, multi-million-dollar corporate espionage and intellectual properties thefts. But he's a bit of a Robin Hood, preferring to steal from people who can afford the loss. Unbeknownst to Margot, Ben has fallen madly in love with his latest mark, Alice Vaughan, which is going to have dire consequences for both of them.
