After being accused of sexual harassment by former assistant Van Barnes and actress Trace Lysette, Jeffrey Tambor quit the hit Amazon show, saying that it was “no longer the job I signed up for four years ago.” The Emmy winner has vehemently denied each allegation, but Amazon began investigating the accusations, and the writers reportedly started considering how to continue “Transparent” without him.
