David Cross Says 'Arrested Development' Cast Stands with Jeffrey Tambor in Wake of Sexual Harassment Allegations
Published Feb 21, 2018Jeffrey Tambor was recently let go from Amazon's Transparent following multiple allegations of sexual harassment on the set of the show. The allegations won't likely affect Tambor's other job, however, as he's reportedly set to reprise his role as George Bluth, Sr. in Season 5 of Arrested Development.
The long-awaited new season of the show is set to hit Netflix later this year. Speaking about the recent Tambor fallout, Arrested's David Cross said he's got Tambor's back. Speaking with AM New York [via Consequence of Sound], Cross said he's taking Tambor's side.
"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," Cross 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."
Cross added that he didn't think the allegations would affect Tambor's role on the new season of Arrested, though he added he's "not in those offices or making those decisions."
Arrested Development could return as soon as this spring.
