      Peter Michael Goetz is a veteran stage actor and familiar on-screen presence from over 30 years of small but memorable performances in everything from the heart-wrenching childhood drama "My Girl" to the dysfunctional family comedy "Arrested Development." Soon after graduating from the University of Minnesota, Goetz joined the award-winning Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, where he has maintained an active stage presence for over 40 years. His early roles, like his portrayal of Whoopi Goldberg's no-nonsense boss in the action-comedy film "Jumpin' Jack Flash," and his portrayal of a fellow writer in the award-winning film adaptation of John Irving's "The World According to Garp," were usually small, but by the early '90s, Goetz had graduated to bigger parts; he played troubled singer Karen Carpenter's emotionally distant father in the highly-rated TV movie "The Karen Carpenter Story" and co-starred with Steve Martin in the popular 1991 film "Father of the Bride," where he portrayed the upper-class father of Martin's soon-to-be son-in-law. Goetz starred as a conservative Boston Irish Catholic in the family sitcom "The Cavanaughs" and was later cast as a crusty Civil War general in the award-winning drama "Glory."
