Thomas Sadoski made headlines in May when he took to Instagram to defend actress Jessica Walter after she confronted her Arrested Development co-star Jeffrey Tambor, who she said verbally harassed her on the set of their Netflix show. Now that same post is resurfacing after Sadoski’s wife, Amanda Seyfried, revealed that he actually “lost out on a job” because of it.
Here’s a somewhat recent post from my husband who, in return for standing beside a badass woman who’d recently been bullied, recently lost out on a job because of this. I’d rather speak up and lose out. Integrity, ladies and gentlemen. #Repost @thomas_sadoski ・・・ This is Jessica Walter. She is a national goddamned treasure. It was an honor and a privilege to work with her. I don’t give a fuck who you think you are or how good you think you are or how awesome you think your buddy/daddy is: screaming at someone isn’t “part of the business”. It’s bullshit. It’s unhinged bullshit behavior and it has NEVER been acceptable. It wasn’t cool in the 70’s or 80’s or whenthefuckever you “came up”. It was bullshit then, it is bullshit now. And excusing that kind of behavior is pathetic. Just pathetic. I worked in shitty greasy-spoon kitchens growing up: it wasn’t acceptable behavior THERE and most of us were on HEAVY DRUGS. It certainly isn’t acceptable for some man-baby millionaire to do on a cozy ass tv show set. And it is even less acceptable for his male cast-mates to excuse it away IN FRONT OF THE PERSON THAT IT HAPPENED TO….(wait for it)….WHILE SHE IS TRYING TO EXPLAIN HOW TRAUMATIZING THE EXPERIENCE WAS. What in the halfpenny fuck is happening?!

The Life in Pieces actor posted a selfie with Walter following a New York Times interview in which she confronted her onscreen husband for lashing out at her in a way that she had never been yelled at “in like almost 60 years of working.” The conversation followed Tambor’s firing from Transparent after he was accused of sexual harassment by two of his co-stars, leading Walter to concede, “I have to let go of being angry at him. He never crossed the line on our show, with any, you know, sexual whatever.”
The confrontation stirred up animosity among the cast that played out during the interview. The dialogue even put castmate Jason Bateman in hot water for seemingly defending Tambor when he said, “Not to belittle it or excuse it or anything, but in the entertainment industry it is incredibly common to have people who are, in quotes, ‘difficult.'” Bateman later apologized.
Still, Sadoski’s post seemed to address that defense directly, which has since put him at a disadvantage in the industry. And Seyfried isn’t the only person to speak out about it.
Extremely grateful for my friendship with this guy, his conviction, his dedication to standing up for what’s right even if it comes at a cost, his unwavering support for the ones he loves (even if it comes at a cost), and most importantly for his amazing wife Amanda @mingey 💛👊

Sadoski’s rep has not yet responded to Yahoo’s request for comment. However, Seyfried’s followers have already made it clear that they “don’t want to support that project” for which Sadoski may have been turned down.
