With roles (and a look) that usually cast him as the perfect "everyman," character actor Peter Jacobson debuted on the small screen in the early '90s, as a guest player on a 1993 episode of NYPD Blue and then in a 1994 episode of Law & Order. A string of supporting roles in highly acclaimed feature films ensued through the end of the 1990s and the first decade of the new millennium. Jacobson's credits during this period include the John Travolta-headlined legal drama A Civil Action (1998); Billy Crystal's wonderful baseball picture 61* (2001), about Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle; and George Clooney's sophomore directorial effort, Good Night, and Good Luck. (2006). In 2007, Jacobson received his highest billing up through that time as studio mogul and deadbeat husband Kenny Kagan in the cable miniseries The Starter Wife, headlined by Debra Messing. In the fall of that year, Jacobson garnered a coveted role on the smash-hit Fox medical series House, joining the cast during the show's fourth season. He was in the box-office blockbuster Transformers in 2007, and followed that up in 2008 with The Midnight Meat Train. As he continued with his recurring role on House, he lent his vocal talents to Pixar in Cars 2.
