Early years

Haskell was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of Rose Veronica (née Golden) and geophysicist Norman Haskell. He attended Browne & Nichols and later earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at Harvard University following a two-year stint in the United States Army where he rose to the rank of Private First Class


Haskell's 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. 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, The Fugitive, The F.B.I. The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Big Valley, Mannix, Medical Center, The Streets of San Francisco, Barnaby Jones, Vega$, B. J. and the Bear, Charlie's Angels, The A-Team, Matlock, and Booker followed.

He was later a regular on the soap operas Search for Tomorrow and Ryan's Hope, and the primetime series Bracken's World. He had recurring roles in Garrison's Gorillas and Rich Man, Poor Man Book II, and was featured in TV movies, such as The Eyes of Charles Sand (1972), The Phantom of Hollywood (1974), The Night They Took Miss Beautiful (1977), Superdome (1978), Mandrake (1979) and The Cracker Factory (1979).

His film appearances include the title role in The Legend of Earl Durand (1974), Riding the Edge (1989) and Robot Wars (1993), though he will be best remembered for playing Sullivan, the CEO of Playpals Toys, in David Kirschner's Child's Play 2 (1990) and Child's Play 3 (1991). His other TV roles in the 1990s included Matlock, Frasier, Columbo: Caution: Murder Can Be Hazardous to Your Health, JAG, The Closer, MacGyver and Cold Case.
