‘Arrested Development': Jessica Walter Says Jeffrey Tambor Verbally Harassed Her on Set

‘Arrested Development': Jessica Walter Says Jeffrey Tambor Verbally Harassed Her on Set
Jessica Walter spoke about her own personal difficulties with “Arrested Development” co-star Jeffrey Tambor, who was recently ousted from his leading role on Amazon’s “Transparent” over sexual misconduct accusations, in an interview published by the New York Times published Wednesday.

Walter — who plays Lucille Bluth opposite TV husband Tambor as George Bluth Sr. on the quirky Netflix comedy — told the Times during a sit-down with the show’s cast ahead of the Season 5 premiere that she needed to “let go of being angry at him” after incidents they had on set.

“He never crossed the line on our show, with any, you know, sexual whatever,” she added. “Verbally, yes, he harassed me, but he did apologize. I have to let it go. And I have to give you a chance to, you know, for us to be friends again.”

“But it’s hard because honestly — Jason [Bateman] says this happens all the time,” Walter said of the actor who plays her son Michael Bluth. “In like almost 60 years of working, I’ve never had anybody yell at me like that on a set. And it’s hard to deal with, but I’m over it now.”

Other “Arrested Development” cast members weighed in on Tambor’s situation during the interview, including Tony Hale (who plays Buster Bluth), who said that “we’ve all had moments.”

“But not like that, not like that,” Walter said. “That was bad.”

The streaming service announced a 2018 release for season 5 of “Arrested Development” last May, long before Tambor was ousted from his leading role on “Transparent.” The star of the Amazon series was fired in February following sexual misconduct accusations made against him by actresses Van Barnes and Trace Lysette.

Tambor has denied all accusations of wrongdoing, though he opened up about the experience in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month after Netflix announced Tambor would be returning for the next installment.

Representatives for Walter and Tambor did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

“Arrested Development” Season 5 Part 1 launches May 29 on Netflix.

Ariana Grande Had the Best Response When a Guy Blamed Her For Mac Miller's Recent DUI Arrest
Ariana Grande does not have time for rude comments about her recent split from rapper Mac Miller. The "No Tears Left to Cry" singer had a truly epic response when a guy on Twitter called her out and placed blame on Ariana for Mac Miller's recent DUI arrest, implying that she should feel guilty. "Mac Miller totaling his G wagon and getting a DUI after Ariana Grande dumped him for another dude after he poured his heart out on a ten-song album to her called the divine feminine is just the most heartbreaking thing happening in Hollywood," he wrote.

Wondering Who Keeps Giving Clay Those Polaroids on 13 Reasons Why? We Have an Answer

  • Popsugar
Warning: Spoilers for 13 Reasons Why season 2 ahead!

There are two big mysteries threaded throughout the second season of 13 Reasons Why: who is leaving those threatening notes, and who keeps giving Clay those Polaroids? Season two kicks off five months after Hannah's death, dropping us into the midst of the court case raging on between Hannah's parents and the school district. Because of this, ominous things start getting left in the lockers, homes, and offices of the main characters - notes (and dead animals) threatening people not to testify and graphic photos warning that "Hannah wasn't the only one." By the time the season wraps up, it's revealed that two different people are responsible.

Baseball player (and horrifying bully) Monty is the one who's been terrorizing everyone with the threats. There's no word on what his official punishment is, but we do see him getting interrogated by the police, so presumably

Who Won Survivor: Ghost Island After a Seriously Shocking Final Tribal Council?

We had our doubts about Survivor: Ghost Island, but it sure did get interesting there towards the end.  All season, we've been complaining (even if just to ourselves) that Ghost Island was a bit of a letdown. The island itself, at least, more often than not just told players they lost out on any potential advantage, and it was never clear if it was good or bad to get sent there.  By the end, what was clear is that not even knowing how other survivors had messed up before could prevent the same fate from happening again, and also that this was going to be a really interesting final result no matter which way it went. And then it went the way that it went.  Donathan was the first to go...
