David Cross Defends Jeffrey Tambor After 'Transparent' Exit Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations

David Cross, who has starred with Jeffrey Tambor on Arrested Development, is defending his former co-star.

Tambor was let go from Amazon’s Transparent after an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct.

“I can’t speak for everybody [on Arrested Development], 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,” David said. “I think it’s very curious that Amazon didn’t make public the results of their internal investigation. I’m not sure why they would do that. I just know the whole thing is rather curious to me.”

The Arrested Development cast also includes Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera and Alia Shawkat. The fifth season of Arrested Development was filming over the summer.

Jeffrey Tambor Speaks Out After Being Dropped from 'Transparent'

Jeffrey Tambor is speaking out after he was officially let go from the Amazon series Transparent following accusations of sexual harassment made against him.

It was initially reported that Tambor would not appear in the fifth season of the show, but then he said he had no intention of leaving.

Tambor was accused of sexual harassment by his former assistant Van Barnes and Transparent guest star Trace Lysette, who are both trans women.

“I am profoundly disappointed in Amazon’s handling of these false accusations against me,” he said in a statement (via Variety). “I am even more disappointed in Jill Soloway’s unfair characterization of me as someone who would ever cause harm to any of my fellow cast mates. In our four-year history of working together on this incredible show, these accusations have NEVER been revealed or discussed directly with me or anyone at Amazon. Therefore, I can only surmise that the investigation against me was deeply flawed and biased toward the toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set. As I have consistently stated, I deeply regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone and I will continue to vehemently defend myself. I also deeply regret that this ground-breaking show, which changed so many lives, is now in jeopardy. That, to me, is the biggest heartbreak.”

Tambor has won two Emmys for his work as trans woman Maura Pfefferman on Transparent.

Jeffrey Tambor Exits 'Transparent' After Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Jeffrey Tambor has officially left Transparent.

The 73-year-old actor was accused of sexual misconduct late last year, and originally, it did appear as if he was going to leave the Amazon show, despite denying any wrongdoing.

Then, a report emerged that Jeffrey actually had no intention of leaving the show.

Now, a representative for the show confirmed his exit to Variety on Thursday (February 15). No statement was made or explanation of how the exit happened was given. The exit comes ahead of the show’s fifth season.

Jeffrey Tambor 'Has No Plans' to Quit 'Transparent' Despite Sexual Misconduct Allegations (Report)

Jeffrey Tambor apparently will not be leaving Transparent, his hit Amazon show, after allegations of sexual misconduct came to light.

A rep for the 73-year-old actor apparently told the New York Times that he has “no plans to quit,” despite releasing a statement that lead many to believe he would be leaving the show.

“I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue. Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to Transparent,” his statement last month read.

Tambor was accused of sexual assault by a makeup artist, and was accused of sexual harassment by Transparent actress Trace Lysette.

Jeffrey Tambor Accused of Sexual Assault by 'Never Again' Makeup Artist

A third woman, who worked with Jeffrey Tambor on his 2001 film Never Again, has come forward to accuse him of sexual assault.

The 73-year-old actor is already facing harassment allegations from his former assistant Van Barnes as well as his Transparent co-star Trace Lysette. He has responded to both claims and announced he is leaving the show.

This time, Never Again makeup artist Tamara Delbridge told Refinery29 that he forcibly kissed her on the set of the film.

On the last day of the shoot, she allegedly told Jeffrey, “It was very nice to work with you,” adding, “And he grabbed me out of nowhere and kissed me on the lips. And I was just shocked. I didn’t even know how to react, because how do you react when you’re not expecting anything like that? So I didn’t know if I was embarrassed or shocked or mortified or stunned. It was a whole bunch of emotions.”

Wondering if she had come across as flirty, Tamara also revealed that Jeffrey‘s co-star Bill Duke saw what happened and told her that Jeffrey was inappropriate.

“In my mind, he just confirmed that I didn’t do anything to provoke it,” Tamara shared. “I don’t know why (Jeffrey) did that to me. But an older, prominent actor violated me and then another older, prominent actor let me know that it was inappropriate. So I think it’s important to add because I will appreciate Bill Duke until the day I die.”

Jeffrey Tambor Exits 'Transparent' Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations (Statement)

Jeffrey Tambor is officially leaving Amazon’s Transparent after sexual harassment allegations have surfaced.

“Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life. What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago,” the 73-year-old actor said in a statement to Deadline. “I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue. Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to Transparent.”

Tambor has won two Emmys, a Golden Globe, and a SAG Awards for his work on the show. The show was just renewed for a fifth season over the summer.

'Transparent' Actress Trace Lysette Accuses Jeffrey Tambor of Sexual Harassment, He Responds

Trace Lysette is speaking out to accuse her Transparent co-star Jeffrey Tambor of sexual harassment on the set of the Emmy-winning Amazon series.

The actress, who is transgender, says that when she emerged on set in a revealing costume, Tambor said, “My God, Trace. I want to attack you sexually.” Minutes later while the camera was being set up, she says that Tambor, dressed as his character Maura, approached her.

“He came in close, put his bare feet on top of mine so I could not move, leaned his body against me, and began quick, discreet thrust back and forth against my body. I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas,” Lysette told THR.

Trace says the moment was discreet and anyone who might have saw it happen probably thought he was giving her a hug.

Jeffrey has previously been accused of sexual harassment by his personal assistant Van Barnes, whose accusations in a private Facebook post launched an investigation at Amazon into the claims.
