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.

As of 2009, Geter has also been a writer, executive story editor, and producer of the TNT series The Closer.
