You probably remember that back in May, the cast of Arrested Development sat down for an interview for The New York Times which ended with Jessica Walter in tears. She was trying to talk about Jeffrey Tambor being a rageaholic asshole to her on set, and Jason Bateman, Tony Hale, and David Cross were practically tripping over each other to rush to his defense. People were rightfully outraged. One such person was Thomas Sadoski. Now, before you start practicing your owl calls, I’ll remind you that he is Amanda Seyfried‘s husband. Apparently, Thomas rushed to Jessica’s defense on Instagram as soon as he heard about it, and read the boys for filth. But if an owl hoots in the woods and there’s nobody following him, does it even count? But I guess somebody must have seen it because Amanda claims that he recently lost out on a job because of it.
Amanda reposted Thomas’ post this week with a note saying how proud she is of her man, even if it did cost him a job.

Here’s a somewhat recent post from my husband who, in return for standing beside a badass woman who’d recently been bullied, recently lost out on a job because of this. I’d rather speak up and lose out. Integrity, ladies and gentlemen. #Repost @thomas_sadoski ・・・ This is Jessica Walter. She is a national goddamned treasure. It was an honor and a privilege to work with her. I don’t give a fuck who you think you are or how good you think you are or how awesome you think your buddy/daddy is: screaming at someone isn’t “part of the business”. It’s bullshit. It’s unhinged bullshit behavior and it has NEVER been acceptable. It wasn’t cool in the 70’s or 80’s or whenthefuckever you “came up”. It was bullshit then, it is bullshit now. And excusing that kind of behavior is pathetic. Just pathetic. I worked in shitty greasy-spoon kitchens growing up: it wasn’t acceptable behavior THERE and most of us were on HEAVY DRUGS. It certainly isn’t acceptable for some man-baby millionaire to do on a cozy ass tv show set. And it is even less acceptable for his male cast-mates to excuse it away IN FRONT OF THE PERSON THAT IT HAPPENED TO….(wait for it)….WHILE SHE IS TRYING TO EXPLAIN HOW TRAUMATIZING THE EXPERIENCE WAS. What in the halfpenny fuck is happening?!
This is great and all, I love that he called Jeffrey a “man baby millionaire” but I’m going to need Amanda to clarify what job he lost out on. I need names, darling. I don’t have time to search the internet to find out what roles your man is up for these days. What in the halfpenny fuck am I supposed to do with this information? Details or GTFO.
Olivia Munn also posted her support of Thomas on her Instagram page. Olivia, would you care to tell us which of the Arrested Development bullies has a problem with your friend Thomas?

Extremely grateful for my friendship with this guy, his conviction, his dedication to standing up for what’s right even if it comes at a cost, his unwavering support for the ones he loves (even if it comes at a cost), and most importantly for his amazing wife Amanda @mingey ??
No? I guess nobody is going to spill. Then what’s the point? Are we all just supposed to pat this man on his backbone and move on? Amanda’s got big Mamma Mia money, what’s he need to work for anyway? Tell me who to beat up and I will, but I can’t really do anything with this information without specifics. Call me when Cher gets involved.
