The veteran actor will play Eddie Larson, the absentee father of main characters Hank and Evan. Eddie will try to re-enter his sons' lives. For what reason? You'll have to tune in this summer and find out.

Winkler most recently guest-starred on three episodes of NUMB3RS. He also played the hilarious role of the Bluth family lawyer on Arrested Development.
