Randy Serraglio  - "Endangered Species Condoms"

Through a network of more than 5,000 volunteers, the Center for Biological Diversity is distributing 100,000 free Endangered Species Condoms in all 50 states to highlight how unsustainable human population growth is driving species extinct at a cataclysmic rate.  At 6.8 billion people, the human race is not only the most populous large mammal on Earth but the most populous large mammal that has ever existed. Providing for the needs and wants of this many people — especially those in high-consumption, first-world nations — has pushed homo sapiens to absorb 50 percent of the planet’s freshwater and develop 50 percent of its landmass. As a result, other species are running out of places to live.  To help people understand the impact of overpopulation on other species, and to give them a chance to take action in their own lives, the Center is distributing free packets of Endangered Species Condoms depicting six separate species: the polar bear, snail darter, spotted owl, American burying beetle, jaguar, and coquí guajón rock frog.

Peter Krause - NBC's  "Parenthood"

"Parenthood" is a one-hour drama inspired by the box-office hit of the same name. This re-imagined and updated Universal Media Studios/Imagine Television production introduces audiences to the very large, very colorful and imperfect Braverman family.   Peter Krause portrays Adam Braverman on NBC's new drama series "Parenthood." Adam is the first-born Braverman and, in many ways, the glue that holds this large and colorful family together. An executive for a sneaker and apparel company, Adam is constantly overburdened at work, but his greatest challenge will always be at home as he and wife, Kristina (Monica Potter), struggle to raise their son, an eight-year-old with Asperger's syndrome, and Haddie, their independent teenage daughter. A native of Minneapolis, Minn., Krause is best known for his work on HBO's acclaimed drama "Six Feet Under," starring as Nate Fisher. Krause began to act in high school, and although he started college as a pre-med student at Gustavus Aldophus College in St. Peter, Minn., he graduated with a B.A. in English literature. He then decided to pursue acting and received an M.F.A. from New York University, where he starred in productions of "Macbeth," "Uncle Vanya" and "Arms and the Man." Two months after graduation, Krause made his television debut as a regular on Carol Burnett's hit variety show, "Carol and Company," followed by a stint on the hit series "Cybill." He first gained attention for his role as Casey McCall on the critically acclaimed "Sports Night." Krause has been nominated for three Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards and two SAG Awards for his performance on "Six Feet Under." He has also received two SAG Awards as part of the "Six Feet Under" ensemble.  In 2004 he made his Broadway debut starring in Arthur Miller's "After the Fall" for director Michael Mayer. He then starred opposite Naomi Watts and Mark Ruffalo in "We Don't Live Here Anymore." Krause was last seen starring in the ABC series "Dirty Sexy Money," the Syfy miniseries "The Lost Room," and the independent feature "Civic Duty." Krause currently resides in Los Angeles.
