Jessica Walter, who plays Lucille Bluth in the comedy series Arrested Development, alleged that her co-star Jeffrey Tambor verbally abused her. According to Variety, “He never crossed the line on our show, with any, you know, sexual whatever. 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,” she said.
The cast of the show addressed the sexual harassment allegations against Tambor during a sit-down with The New York Times.
Tambor was accused of sexually harassing his assistant, a trans woman named Van Barnes. Furthermore, Trace Lysette, who joined the show – Transparent as a guest star, opened up about the actor behaving inappropriately with her.
Season 5 of Arrested Development will air on Netflix from May 29.
Aamir Khan, during a media interaction, said that he was offered to the role of Sanjay Dutt’s father, late Sunil Dutt, in Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju, but he refused the role. His reason:
“He (Hirani) approached me with the script and I loved it. He wanted me to play Dutt saab’s role. It is a fantastic role and the story is largely on the father-son relationship. But Sanju’s role is unbelievable. So as an actor, I told Raju that Sanjay Dutt’s role is so wonderful that it won my heart. So in this film I can’t do any other role but Sanjay Dutt’s, which of course I cannot do because Ranbir (Kapoor) is playing it. So, do not offer me anything,” Aamir said, as per IANS.
