Leo Geter is an American character actor who has appeared in many films, including the 1984 hit Footloose, as well as Near Dark, In Love and War, The Stand, and Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers and Silent Night, Deadly Night.
Howard Stern was going to get the part of the radio talk show host Barry Simms in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers in 1995, but he was filming Private Parts at the time, so the role went to Geter.
Geter made his directorial debut with the 2002 film Andy Across the Water. He has made guest appearances on television shows such as Northern Exposure, In the Heat of the Night, Empty Nest, and Amazing Stories.
As of 2009, Geter has also been a writer, executive story editor, and producer of the TNT series The Closer.
