Jeffrey Tambor is leaving Amazon’s Transparent after a second sexual misconduct allegation was leveled against him. Turns out, Transparent had already been working on pushing him out of the series after the first misconduct allegation broke. Tambor’s departure makes this much easier. But he didn’t leave without being a dick about it, releasing a statement saying, “Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to Transparent.” I’m glad he’s leaving. I’m also glad the series is continuing. Also, I knew Tambor was a dick when I read that he was an asshole to NPR’s Kitty Eisele. Sexual harassment allegations do not fall far from the asshole tree. We’ll await Netflix’s decision about what to do with Tambor on Arrested Development season 5. (WashPo)
