He's the Emmy-winning star of Amazon web series "Transparent". He's also had leading roles in "Arrested Development" and "The Larry Sanders Show". But now Comedian and actor Jeffrey Tambor has become the latest Hollywood A-lister to be embroiled in a sexual harassment claim. Actress Trace Lysette has accused him of making sexually-charged remarks, as well as acting inappropriately during one incident that she said: "got physical." She alleges these things happened while they worked on "Transparent" - the groundbreaking comedy series with a transgender lead character. The actress has appeared as a guest star in multiple episodes of the show's four seasons. In a statement, forwarded on Sunday by his publicist, Tambor said he did not see how he could return to the show for fifth season after the allegations of sexual harassment against him. He has not explicitly said he won't be returning either.
