  • * Ms. Peyser began her career playing "The Girl" in the original Off-Broadway
    production of HOT L BALTIMORE, by Lanford Wilson, at Circle in the Square.
    Her first film, ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN, with one choice scene opposite
    Dustin Hoffman, propelled her to L.A. where she landed the role of "Ramona"
    in RICH MAN, POOR MAN II, followed by a stint as Tony Randall's daughter in
    THE TONY RANDALL SHOW. Mini-series and television movies such as THE BLUE
    & THE GRAY with Stacey Keach and Colleen Dewhurst, WILD TIMES opposite Sam
    Elliot, and BJ & THE BEAR, along with many guest star roles followed. She
    had the pleasure of playing Alan Arkin's daughter in comedy cult favorite,
    THE IN-LAWS, and Gene Wilder's bride in THE FRISCO KID. CRAZY LIKE A FOX
    with Jack Warden and KNOTS LANDING were her next two television series.
    Please see IMDB.com for a complete list of credits.

    While taking time off from her acting career to raise her children, Ms.
    Peyser worked in development for director Donald Petrie and co-wrote,
    produced and directed an award winning documentary with husband Doug

    Featuring Clint Eastwood, Billy Crystal, Merv Griffin, Frank Marshall, and
