From Public Radio International's Bullseye with Jesse Thorn:
Jeffrey Tambor began his screen-acting career at the age of 35, though he'd been acting onstage since he was eight years old. His most famous roles would come much later, however, as he's best known for two of the most popular sitcoms of the last two decades: Hank Kingsley on The Larry Sanders Show, and George Bluth, Sr. on Arrested Development.
Jeffrey sat down with Jesse back in 2009 to talk about how he got involved with both Arrested Development and Larry Sanders (or as his mother called it, "The Hank Kingsley Show"), the art of finding the serious side to comedic characters, and his teaching career. He brings his acting workshop to South By Southwest later this month. His new sitcom Bent premieres March 21st on NBC.
