Krause was born in Alexandria, Minnesota to a mother who taught second grade and a father who was a high school English teacher. He was raised in the St. Paul suburbs. He has two siblings, Michael and Amy.

Krause graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College, in St. Peter, Minnesota, with a degree in English literature. He also has a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from New York University's Graduate Acting Program at the Tisch School of the Arts.

In the early 1990s, Krause made a number of guest appearances on television shows such as Seinfeld, Beverly Hills, 90210, and Ellen. Starting in 1996, Krause appeared in a recurring role as Cybill Shepherd's son-in-law Kevin on her sitcom Cybill for four seasons. From 1998 to 2000, Krause also portrayed the character Casey McCall on the ABC network's comedy Sports Night. Although the show received considerable critical acclaim, it struggled to find an audience and was canceled after two seasons.

Krause starred in the HBO drama series Six Feet Under from 2001 to 2005. He received seven award nominations for his portrayal of funeral director Nate Fisher.

Krause appeared on Broadway in the summer of 2004 in a revival of Arthur Miller's After the Fall. In December 2006, he played the lead role, Detective Joe Miller, in the Sci Fi Channel miniseries The Lost Room. Krause portrayed the young lawyer Nick George in ABC's drama Dirty Sexy Money alongside veteran actor Donald Sutherland from 2007 to 2009.

In March 2009, Krause was cast as the role of Adam Braverman in the NBC comedy-drama Parenthood. One year later in March 2010, Parenthood premiered as a mid-season replacement. In May, the show was picked up for a full second season.

Krause appeared in the 2011 fantasy film Beastly, based on Alex Flinn's 2007 novel of the same name.
