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.
