Critics cooed over Krause's subsequent portrayal of a divorced reporter on the short-lived comedy "Sports Night" but liked him even more on the acclaimed HBO drama "Six Feet Under." Playing a son who returns home to work in his family's funeral parlor, Krause earned multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for his efforts on the series.
Buoyed by the success of "Six Feet Under," Krause made his Broadway debut in a 2004 revival of playwright Arthur Miller's "After the Fall." Krause's noteworthy big-screen work includes The Truman Show (1998) and the indie flick We Don't Live Here Anymore (2004).
Truman Burbank is the star of "The Truman Show," a 24-hour-a-day TV phenomenon that broadcasts every aspect of his life without his knowledge. When Truman discovers that his life is a sham for public consumption, he makes a desperate escape bid.
