Peter Breitmayer stars in "Fargo" on FX as Lieutenant Schmidt.

Peter Breitmayer jump-started his career in 1988, when he began his three-year residency at the Second City of Minneapolis, Dudley Riggs Brave New Workshop. In the eight years following, he went on to become one of the region's most prolific stage actors, appearing on numerous Twin Cities stages. Breitmayer simultaneously developed a solid and diverse national commercial, film and television career that has continued in Los Angeles, his home since 1996.

On the big screen, Breitmayer appears as Councilman Thorpe in Clint Eastwood's "Changeling" and Gar Brandt in the Coen Brothers film, "A Serious Man." He can also be seen in "Horrible Bosses," "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," "Fun with Dick and Jane," "Jingle All the Way," "Suckers," "Drop Dead Fred," and "Catch Me If You Can," among others.  

On television, he played the recurring role of Pete Miller in ABC's comedy "The Middle" and has guest starred in "NCIS," "Grey's Anatomy," "Hart of Dixie," "The Closer," "Desperate Housewives," "Mad Men," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "How I Met Your Mother," "The Unit," "Huff," "Boston Legal," "Commander in Chief," "King of Queens," "Charmed," "Las Vegas," "Angel," "Just Shoot Me" and an Emmy-winning episode of "Malcolm in the Middle." He also played Captain Phil Bender in the CBS's movie, "The Stranger Within," where, after being whacked on the head with a hammer by Ricky Schroeder, he experienced his career's seminal moment (and anybody's boyhood dream) when he laid "half dead" in an open pit shooting for three hours with Kate Jackson (the smart Angel) laying on top of him.

In Los Angeles, Breitmayer has been on numerous stages, winning LA Weekly Awards in two productions. He has also toured nationally and in Dublin, Ireland, with the long-running hit show "Triple Espresso."

He earned his BA in Theology from Gustavus Adolphus College.
