  Summary  

Peter Frechette is an American film, stage and television actor.

  Biography  

 early life
Born and raised in Coventry, Rhode Island, Frechette earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theater from the University of Rhode Island.

 career
Off-Broadway he has appeared in Absent Friends, The Destiny of Me, What the Butler Saw, and The Dazzle, for which he won the Obie Award. His Broadway credits include Eastern Standard, which won him the Theatre World Award and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play and a nomination for the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play; Our Country's Good, for which he was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play; and the 2005 revival of The Odd Couple.

Frechette's first major screen role was the hormone-driven Louis DiMucci in Grease 2.
Additional film credits include No Small Affair, The Hills Have Eyes Part II, The First Wives Club, Inside Man, The Savages, and Miracle at St. Anna.

Frechette appeared in numerous television series, including The Facts of Life, Taxi, Hill Street Blues, Cagney & Lacey, L.A. Law, and Matlock, before being cast in the recurring role of gay artist Peter Montefiore in thirtysomething. The 1989 episode "Strangers" generated a great deal of controversy because it depicted Peter and Russell Weller, portrayed by David Marshall Grant, in bed, seemingly naked after having had sexual relations following a first date. A number of advertisers refused to run commercials during the broadcast, and ABC opted not to air the episode again during summer reruns. Frechette was nominated for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his performance.

Frechette subsequently appeared in Picket Fences, Barbarians at the Gate, and M.A.N.T.I.S., among others, before being cast in the regular role of computer expert George Fraley in Profiler. He since has been featured on Law & Order and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
