Meet Katie Holmes' New Boyfriend

A source allegedly told Grazia magazine, "It's early days but Katie and Peter have been on quite a few dates. They met up two weeks ago at the New York Observer's 25th anniversary party. They have a lot in common - he's a total stage buff.

"They have only been seeing each other a few weeks but he's incredibly charming, the type to buy her flowers and treat her like a lady," said the source. "Katie's had a few dates but nothing came of them. But her friends are happy she is seeing Peter, they think he could be a good fit."
