Bio

Peter Krause is an American actor best known for his starring role as Nate Fisher on the television drama series Six Feet Under, from 2001-2005.

He also starred in the comedy-drama series Parenthood, from 2010-2015.

Krause was born in Alexandria, Minnesota. Growing up, he was a skilled track and field athlete, but he suffered an unfortunate pole vaulting injury in high school that ended his athletic career.

He attended Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota and became interested in theatre. He decided to pursue acting as a career and transferred to New York University to enroll in its Master of Fine Arts program.

While working as a bartender in New York City, he met writer Aaron Sorkin.

From 1998-2000 Krause portrayed the character Casey McCall on the comedy Sports Night, created by his friend Aaron Sorkin. Although the show received considerable critical acclaim, it struggled to find an audience and was cancelled after two seasons.

Krause starred in the series Six Feet Under in 2001 and received much critical acclaim and several award nominations (including three Emmy nominations) for his portrayal of funeral director Nate Fisher.

In December 2006 he played the lead role, Detective Joe Miller, in the Sci Fi Channel mini-series The Lost Room.

He starred in ABC's drama Dirty Sexy Money, alongside veteran actor Donald Sutherland, from 2007-2009.
