A personable Everyman with a knack for both deadpan comedy and heavy drama, Craig T. Nelson was a Los Angeles-based comic and gag writer before making his acting debut in 1971. Featured in largely minor roles for much of the 1970s and early 1980s, he hit pay dirt as the protective father of a suburban family under attack by supernatural forces in the monster summer hit, "Poltergeist" (1982). Television brought him wider exposure as the star of two popular series: the long-running sitcom "Coach" (ABC, 1989-1997) followed by the gritty crime drama "The District" (CBS, 2000-04). Despite his busy schedule, Nelson continued to keep a hand in TV movies and theatrical features, most notably as the voice of the super-heroic Mr. Incredible in the acclaimed animated Pixar feature "The Incredibles" (2004). After many more supporting turns and guest appearances, fans welcomed the actor's return to a regular series role as Zeek Braverman, the even-keeled patriarch of a large, eclectic clan in the Ron Howard-produced dramedy series, "Parenthood" (NBC, 2010-15). Steady as a rock, the always reliable Nelson continued to anchor projects of any timbre or genre, much to the delight of audiences everywhere.

QUOTES FROM Craig T. Nelson CHARACTERS

Dr. Lesh says: Would your family welcome a serious investigation of these disturbances by someone who can make firsthand observations?

Steve Freeling says: Look, Dr. Lesh. We don't care about the disturbances, the pounding and the flashing, the screaming, the music. We just want you to find our little girl.

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: [whispering] Listen closely. I'd like to help you but I can't. I'd like to tell you to take a copy of your policy to Norma Wilcox on... Norma Wilcox, W-I-L-C-O-X... on the third floor, but I can't.

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: Did you get away with it?

Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible says: Did you get away with it?

Helen Parr / Elastigirl says: Don't incourage him!

Helen Parr/Elastigirl says: Don't incourage him!

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: I'm not incoraging him, I'm just wondering if he got away with it

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: I'm not incoraging him, I'm just wondering if he got away with it.

Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible says: I'm not encouraging him, I'm just wondering if he got away with it.

Edna Mode says: What is it? Who are you, what do you want?

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: (Pulls down sunglasses to show it's him).

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: [pulls down sunglasses to show it's him]

Edna Mode says: My god you've gotten fat! Come in! Come, come!

Steve says: [shouting in Teague's face] You son of a bitch! You moved the cemetery, but you left the bodies, didn't you? You son of a bitch, you left the bodies and you only moved the headstones! You-only-moved-the-headstones! Lies! Lies!

Lucius Best / Frozone says: Just like old times, huh Bob?

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: [slapping Lucius in the back] Just like old times.

Lucius Best / Frozone says: Ha-ha, yeah. Hurt then, too. Ow.

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: Buddy?

Syndrome says: My name's NOT BUDDY! [attacking Bob] AND it's not Incredi-boy either!

Edna Mode says: This is a hobo suit, darling. You can't be seen in this. I won't allow it. Fifteen years ago, maybe, but now? Feh!

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: Wait, what do you mean? You designed it.

Edna Mode says: I never look back, darling! It distracts from the now.

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: [Stretches] It's showtime.

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: [stretches] It's showtime.

Helen Parr / Elastigirl says: Cutting it kinda close, don't you think?

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: Well, you need to be more...flexible.

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: You need to be more... flexible.

Helen Parr / Elastigirl says: You're late. When you asked me if I was doing anything later, I didn't realize you had forgotten. I thought it was playful banter.

Helen Parr / Elastigirl says: You're late. When you asked me if I was doing anything later, I didn't realize you'd actually forgotten. I thought it was playful banter.

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: It was playful banter.

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: Wait. I bet Syndrome's changed the password by now. How do I get into his computers?

Mirage says: [over microphone] Say please.

Lucius Best / Frozone says: It means it's hot! And I've dehydrated, Bob! What's your excuse, you run out of muscle?!

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: I can't just go smashing through walls, the building's getting weaker by the second, it's gonna come down on top of us!

Lucius Best / Frozone says: I wanted to go bowling!

Steve says: Look, something's -- funny going on here next door. Something ...

Steve says: Look, something's funny going on here next door. Something.

Diane says: We were wondering if maybe you had experienced any disturbances.

Tuthill says: What kind of disturbances?

Diane says: Oh, you know, like dishes or furniture moving around by themselves.

Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible says: No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know, for a little bit? I feel like the maid; I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for... for ten minutes!
