Peter started his career performing in the Guthrie Theater in 1978, appearing in productions such as “The Pretenders” and “Hamlet”. This then led him to appear in the 1980 off-Broadway play “Crimes of the Heart”, which would move to Broadway a year later. His performance earned him a Theatre World Award, and his popularity began to increase. This led him to be cast in “Sophie’s Choice”, as well as his first film starring role in “Dragonslayer”. In 1987, he joined the Trinity Repertory Company production “All the King’s Men” – his net worth was rising steadily.

He continued doing stage projects in the next few years, including “Black Comedy/White Lies”, and was also given title roles in “Romeo and Juliet” and “Richard II”. His film opportunities continued, including for “Ghostbusters II” and “Addams Family Values” which helped increase his net worth too. In 1994, he became a part of “Chicago Hope”, in which he stayed for nearly two seasons before taking on another role in “Ally McBeal”. His net worth increased significantly, as he became well-known for his performance as the eccentric attorney John Cage, and won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in 2001. He was then cast in the drama “Numbers”, playing physicist Dr. Larry Fleinhardt, and in the sixth season of the hit show “24”, playing Tom Lennox. He would reprise his role in the film “24: Redemption”, and also played a receptionist in an episode of “Cheers”.

MacNicol has also been involved in voice acting work, notably voicing several comic book supervillains in various projects, including “The Batman” in which he voiced Man-Bat, and in “Justice League Unlimited” and “Young Justice”. Other voice projects have included “Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law”, and “The Spectacular Spiderman”, voicing Doctor Octopus. He also lent his voice to the “Arkham” video game series, in which he played the Mad Hatter, and appears in “Batman: Arkham City”, “Batman: Arkham Origins”, and “Batman: Arkham Knight”.

A few of his recent projects include playing Dr. Stark in “Grey’s Anatomy”, and as a guest in the fifth season of “Veep”, for which he was nominated for an Emmy. This was rescinded, however, when there were changes in what qualified as a guest actor.

For his personal life, it is known that Peter has been married to Martha Sue Cumming since 1986.
