A much-employed character actor, Peter Jacobson got steady quality work both in feature films and on television. The son of Chicago news anchor Walter Jacobson, Peter Jacobson made his first appearance on television and in the movies in supporting roles as a reporter--on a 1993 episode of "NYPD Blue" and in the romantic comedy "It Could Happen to You" the following year. It's a part Jacobson returned to when he was cast as Artie Green in Billy Crystal's excellent 2001 baseball docudrama, "61*." He continued racking up guest appearances on "Spin City," "Oz," and "Law & Order" along with supporting parts in the films "Conspiracy Theory," "Deconstructing Harry," and "As Good as It Gets," where he shared a table with future "House M.D." castmate Lisa Edelstein. In the 2000s, Jacobson's roles started getting meatier, and included working alongside George Clooney in his 2005 sophomore directorial outing "Good Night, and Good Luck," starring as deadbeat spouse Kenny Kagan in the 2007 miniseries "The Starter Wife" opposite Debra Messing, and getting cast as series regular Dr. Chris Taub in the aforementioned "House M.D."
