Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A capable and charismatic leading man in numerous television productions, Peter Krause lent both gravity and humor to several acclaimed small screen productions, including "Sports Night" (ABC, 1998-2000) and "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05). A lengthy apprenticeship of television guest spots built Krause's visibility, while "Sports Night" - a screwball comedy-influenced sitcom about a failing cable sports show - established him as an actor worthy of top billing. But it was his turn as Nate Fisher, the troubled son of a deeply dysfunctional family of funeral home operators on "Six Feet Under," that alerted viewers and critics to his talent. Krause returned to television for several subsequent shows, as well as the occasional feature like the caustic relationship drama "We Don't Live Here Anymore" (2004), lending each his particular brand of versatility and skill.
