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.
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.
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.
