Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A tall, sturdy man with classic good looks that served him well across his decades-spanning screen career, Peter Haskell worked in everything from the TV drama "Bracken's World" to the "Child's Play" slasher-flick franchise. After serving in the Army and gaining a Bachelor's degree from Harvard, Haskell was set to attend Columbia Law School in New York when an ex-professor recommended him for an off-Broadway show.

The rest of his career was spent as a supporting player in dozens of evening soaps, medical dramas, and procedural shows, with occasional film work, most memorably as Mr. Sullivan, head of Good Guy Toys in "Child's Play 2" and "Child's Play...
