Six Feet Under Star Takes Role in ‘Beastly’

Peter Krause, who you might remember as Nate from “Six Feet Under,” has joined Mary-Kate Olsen, Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens in Beastly, the CBS Films adaptation of the Alex Flinn fantasy novel. Shooting is under way in Montreal. Daniel Barnz is directing his scripted adaptation of the novel, a retelling of “Beauty and the Beast.” Krause, the “Six Feet Under” vet who’s starring in NBC’s fall drama “Parenthood,” plays the materialistic father of a rich, handsome teen (Pettyfer) who plays a cruel joke on a classmate not knowing she’s a witch (Olsen).
