Peter William Krause (pronounced /ˈkraʊzə/; born August 12, 1965) is an American film and television actor and film producer. He is perhaps best known for his lead roles as Nate Fisher on Six Feet Under and Nick George on Dirty Sexy Money.
From 1998 to 2000, Krause portrayed the character Casey McCall on the ABC 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.
He also appeared in a frequently recurring role as Cybill Shepherd's son-in-law Kevin on her sitcom Cybill for all four seasons.
