Emmy winner Jeffrey Tambor, who was fired from his role on Amazon’s “Transparent” after a three-month investigation into allegations of sexual harassment, will continue in his other TV role. EW reports that Tambor will be a part of the upcoming fifth season of Netflix’s “Arrested Development.”
“A spokesperson for the streaming service confirmed that Tambor, who plays Bluth patriarch George Sr., will indeed appear in season 5 of the cult-favorite dysfunctional family comedy, which wrapped production on its new batch of episodes in November, right around when the accusations surfaced,” EW reports.
The report notes that Tambor has received support from some of his castmates on “Arrested Development.”
David Cross is quoted saying in February: “I can’t speak for everybody, but I know there are a number of us who stand behind him — from the limited amount we know, we stand behind Jeffrey — and I am one of them.”
