Peter Krause

Adam Braverman

A native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Peter Krause can currently be seen in NBC's "Parenthood" alongside Lauren Graham, Dax Shepard and Erika Christensen. The dramedy is a contemporary reimagining of Ron Howard's 1989 feature starring Steve Martin and Dianne Wiest that centered on a Midwestern family. Krause portrays Adam Braverman, the first-born Braverman child and, in many ways, the glue that holds this large and colorful family together. Adam is constantly overburdened at work, but his greatest challenge will always be at home, as he and wife Kristina struggle to raise their children: toddler Nora, tween son Max, who was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and older daughter Haddie, who is attending Cornell University.

Best known for his work as Nate Fisher on HBO's "Six Feet Under," Krause was nominated for three Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards and two SAG Awards for his performance on the acclaimed drama. He also received two SAG Awards as part of the "Six Feet Under" ensemble.

Krause's television debut as a regular on Carol Burnett's hit variety show "Carol and Company," only two months after he graduated from college, was followed by a stint on the hit comedy "Cybill."

Previously best known for the role of Casey McCall on the critically acclaimed series "Sports Night," Krause's additional credits include the television series "Dirty Sexy Money," the Syfy miniseries "The Lost Room," the independent feature "Civic Duty," and the films "Beastly" and "We Don't Live Here Anymore," in which he starred opposite Naomi Watts and Mark Ruffalo.

In 2004, Krause made his Broadway debut, starring in Arthur Miller's "After the Fall" for director Michael Mayer.

Krause began acting in high school, and although he entered college as a pre-med student at Gustavus Aldophus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, he graduated with a BA in English literature. He then decided to pursue acting and later earned an MFA from New York University, where he starred in productions of "Macbeth," "Uncle Vanya" and "Arms and the Man."
