  • Though his role on what many considered to be the smartest weekly series on television (Sports Night) may have made him a household name in a perfect world, boyish but handsome actor Peter Krause found himself inexplicably unemployed following the show's unfortunately all-too-short run. Born August 12th, 1965, in Alexandria, MN, in 1965, Krause spent his youth immersed heavily in track and field and gymnastics. Following a career-ending high school pole-vaulting injury, Krause took to the stage during his education at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN, on the age-old pretense of meeting a girl. Though he wasn't thrilled with the role he essayed, Krause soon took a shine to acting and decided to pursue a career in New York University's Master of Fine Arts acting program. Working as a bartender with writer Aaron Sorkin at the Palace Theater while living in the city, Krause moved to Los Angeles following graduation and landed television roles in Carol and Company, Beverly Hills 90210, and Seinfeld thanks in part to friend and fellow N.Y.U. student Camryn Manheim. Following a turn on television's Cybill in 1995, Krause got his big feature break with a role in The Truman Show three years later. With his role as a member of a mortistically inclined family in HBO's Six Feet Under, Krause found himself a key member of yet another talented cast on yet another critically praised series.In 2004, Krause portrayed a struggling poet and professor in the critically acclaimed marriage drama We Don't Love Here Anymore, and continued to work on Six Feet Under until the series' powerful conclusion in 2005. Krause returned to television to star in ABC's prime time drama Dirty Sexy Money. The show, which lasted for two seasons between 2007 an 2009, followed Nick George (Krause), a lawyer and family man determined to investigate the circumstances surrounding his father's mysterious death. The actor also appeared in the NBC comedy drama Parenthood, and joined the casat of 2011's edgy fantasy film Beastly.
