Biography

A tall, sturdy man with classic good looks that served him well across his decades-spanning screen career, Peter Haskell worked in everything from the TV drama "Bracken's World" to the "Child's Play" slasher-flick franchise. After serving in the Army and gaining a Bachelor's degree from Harvard, Haskell was set to attend Columbia Law School in New York when an ex-professor recommended him for an off-Broadway show. Once he caught the acting bug performing in the show--Deric Washburn's "The Love Nest", with James Earl Jones and Sally Kirkland--he didn't look back, and was soon winning parts on such prime-time series as the mid-1960s hospital drama "Ben Casey" and playing silver-haired writer/producer Kevin Grant on the studio-lot-set "Bracken's World". The show's two-season run brought him enough TV screen time to keep him in small roles throughout the 1970s, with his next major coup coming when he landed the part of Charles Estep on "Rich Man, Poor Man--Book II". The rest of his career was spent as a supporting player in dozens of evening soaps, medical dramas, and procedural shows, with occasional film work, most memorably as Mr. Sullivan, head of Good Guy Toys in "Child's Play 2" and "Child's Play 3". Haskell continued to work on prime-time hits almost until his death in 2010 at the age of 75.
