1. Jeffrey Tambor leaving Amazon series 'Transparent' amid harassment claims: report02:22[−]

Emmy-winning actor Jeffrey Tambor is leaving the Amazon series "Transparent" amid allegations of sexual harassment, Deadline reported on Sunday. "What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago," Tambor told 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," Tambor said. "Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don't see how I can return to Transparent." Tambor has been accused of predatory behavior by an actress and an assistant on the show. The future of the show, which streams on Amazon.com Inc.'s Amazon Prime, is uncertain, although its writers had already begun to explore a fifth season without Tambor, according to reports. It was unclear if the planned fifth season of Netflix Inc.'s "Arrested Development," on which Tambor also co-stars, will continue.
