Jeffrey Tambor May Not Quit 'Transparent' Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations After All

Jeffrey Tambor May Not Quit 'Transparent' Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations After All”

Jeffrey Tambor's future on the Amazon comedy series "Transparent" remains in question following sexual harassment allegations made against him. According to The New York Times, Tambor "has no plans to quit" and merely hinted that he was thinking of leaving the show. "But no final decision for next year has been made, either by Jeffrey or by Amazon".

Amazon is now investigating the allegations made against Tambor by his former assistant Van Barnes and by actress Trace Lysette.

As of now, season 5 is reportedly in "agonizing limbo" as the creators "find themselves trying to construct a fifth season that may or may not include their central character".

In the aftermath of the new claims, Tambor said, "This is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago".

No two cases of alleged misconduct have been alike, and it's possible that Tambor will indeed return to Transparent for another season. Tambor denied the allegations. Lysette was also Barnes's roommate when she worked for Tambor; as she made her own accusation, the actress recalled, "She would come home wrecked and stressed".

"I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas and I pushed him off of me", she said.

"I've already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive", he added, "but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue".

There's been a great deal of discomfort from some of the show's fans that a show that has been otherwise progressive in hiring trans actors is still ultimately led by a cisgender man, and the sexual misconduct allegations obviously amplify that inherent problem.

A third woman, makeup artist Tamara Delbridge, came forward November 22 and said Tambor kissed her without consent on the set of the movie "Never Again" in 2001. An Amazon representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
