Executive summary: Nate Fisher on Six Feet Under

Krause's first film was Blood Harvest, a 1987 slasher film starring ukulele player Tiny Tim. Krause's character had a quick sex scene, then got up to go for a beer and was murdered. He played a Nazi in an episode of Seinfeld, and Andrea's summer fling on Beverly Hills, 90210. He was a regular on Carol Burnett's very short-lived 1990 comeback comedy Carol & Company, and an even shorter-lived 1995 sitcom, If Not For You, with Elizabeth McGovern and Hank Azaria. Krause was in the cast for several seasons of Cybil, and had a leading role on Aaron Sorkin's late-1990s sitcom Sports Night. HBO's dark comedy Six Feet Under was Krause's real breakthrough. On that show since 2001, he has played Nate, the prodigal son who came home to help run the family's funeral business.
