The streaming giant announced in a statement that the 64-year-old actor will play Don Quinn in the holiday-themed series.
Quinn is a strong-willed patriarch who must balance the demands of his complicated family with the stress of the Christmas season when his youngest daughter comes home for the holidays with a new boyfriend.
The actor is best known for starring in films like "The Day After Tomorrow", "A Dog's Purpose" and "Vantage Point".
Netflix said the show's first season takes place over the "week or so around Christmas". It added that the future seasons might explore other holidays.
