We've been fans of Peter Krause for a long time. So we were more than pleased to hear he'll be playing the mildly uptight family patriarch, Adam, in the highly anticipated TV show based on Ron Howard’s 1989 movie “Parenthood."
We first got a hint of Krause in "Cybill," playing Cybill Shepherd's son-in-law, but it was his starring role as anchor Casey McCall on "Sports Night" that put Krause on our map. We were sad to see the series end after two seasons, but glad to see Peter back on our TV the following year as funeral director Nate Fisher in "Six Feet Under."
While it seemed like an eternity between Krause spottings on the small screen, he returned just two years later in "Dirty, Sexy Money," the new millennium's answer to "Dynasty." Krause played Nick George, the good guy turned-oh-so-slightly-bad when he took over as the family lawyer to the filthy rich Darling family. Once again, though, we were let down to have yet another Krause show canceled.
And now he's back. Hopefully, to stay for a while on what is expected to be a big hit, "Parenthood." This time he's playing a good guy. A family guy. A guy struggling to find time for both his work and his kids. In a recent interview, Krause said he likes playing this kind of character because it's a big change for him to portray a good husband and a good dad.
