While it looks like Judith Light is alive, alive with the sound of music! Even in that truly hideous bra situation. Just give her the Emmy now.
When we last left the cast of Transparent, Jeffrey Tambor was dropped after several transwomen on set claimed he had acted like a creep towards them. Jeffrey himself claimed he never acted gross, and that the only thing he was guilty of was being a straight cis man playing a transwoman. Oh, and also that he might have been a jerk (not new news for Jessica Walter). Still, Transparent didn’t want anything to do with him, and he wasn’t brought back for the fifth and final season. Amazon just dropped the trailer for the finale, and they cut right to the chase about what happened to Moppa Maura Pfefferman.
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.
You would think being married to one of the founders and most vocal proponents of the Time’s Up movement might have some added benefits such as, helping you develop a more nuanced understanding of sexual politics in the workplace, or, how to craft a winning apology. But apparently that’s not how it works in the Tamblyn-Cross household. David Cross is taking heat for his participation in that New York Times interview with the cast of Arrested Development that should have been called “How To Sink A Show Before It Even Airs”.
When seven cast members of Arrested Development recently sat down with The New York Times for an interview about the upcoming fifth season, I’m sure they all thought they’d have a great time. (Ron Howard voice) They did not. Jason Bateman came to the defense of on-set jerk Jeffrey Tambor, and while doing so, he simultaneously took a hot cornballer shit all over Jessica Walter’s feelings.
For the first time since he was accused of alleged COMB (creepy old man behavior) on the set of Transparent back in November, Jeffrey Tambor is speaking, and he’s got a lot to say. Much like the statements that were released after the accusations by his former assistant Van Barnes and actress Trace Lysette, Jeffrey tells The Hollywood Reporter that the only crime he’s guilty of is acting like an entitled prick with anger issues, and that’s that.
Back in February, Amazon let it be known that there would no longer be a reserved spot in their parking lot for Jeffrey Tambor after completing an investigation into allegations that he harassed several women on the set of Transparent. Amazon and Transparent co-creator Jill Soloway clearly didn’t want anything else to do with Jeffrey. Netflix, on the other hand, doesn’t share the same feelings. A spokesperson for Netflix confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that Jeffrey will be appear in the fifth season of Arrested Development.
