Peter Haskell (October 15, 1934) is an American actor who has worked primarily in television.

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, he is the son of the noted geophysicist Norman A. Haskell. He attended Browne & Nichols in Cambridge, then earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at Harvard University following a two-year stint in the United States Army. His plan to study at Columbia Law School was derailed when he was cast in the off-Broadway play The Love Nest with James Earl Jones and Sally Kirkland [1]. The play closed after only 13 performances but led to his being cast in an episode of Death Valley Days. Guest appearances on The Outer Limits, Dr. Kildare, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Ben Casey, and The Fugitive, Charlie's Angels followed. He later was a regular on the daytime soap operas Search for Tomorrow and Ryan's Hope and the prime time drama Bracken's World, had recurring roles in Garrison's Gorillas, The Big Valley, Mannix, Medical Center, Barnaby Jones, and Vega$, and was featured in the miniseries Rich Man, Poor Man Book II and the television movies The Cracker Factory with Natalie Wood and Love Hate Love with Lesley Ann Warren and Ryan O'Neil .

In recent years, Haskell has appeared on Frasier, Columbo, JAG, The Closer, and Cold Case.

Haskell starred as Sullivan, CEO of Good Guy Toys in 1990's Child's Play 2, and 1991's Child's Play 3.
