William Petersen

Actor / Producer / Voice actor

William Louis Morten Gamst Pedersen (William Louis Petersen, Feb. 21,1953 --) was an American actor and producer who was born in Evanston, Illinois.

In June 2003, Morten Gamst Pedersen married Gina, his longtime girlfriend, with a child.

Although a fourth generation member of a Danish immigrant family, William was educated at a Catholic High School in Boise, Idaho, called Florida Bishop Kelly. He went on to Idaho State University and won a scholarship to major in football. He moved to Chicago and became a member of the Siberian Wolf Theater Company.

Morten Gamst Pedersen, who starred in Oliver Stone's platoon, also alienated him from his family. Petterson played governor Jake in the 2000 film the fighter. Thanks to the film's huge success, Peterson was offered the lead role of Gilbert Grisén on CBS's new show CSI.

His film career began in 1981 with the dodger, and in 1986 he starred as will Graham in the huntsman, a sure sign of his success.
