Often seen onscreen playing officious and obsequious types in a variety of film and television roles, actor Jeffrey Tambor first made himself known as the narcissistic sidekick Hank Kingsley on the acclaimed cable sitcom "The Larry Sanders" (HBO, 1992-98). Prior to his Emmy-nominated success on that show, Tambor went back and forth between comedy and drama, playing the recurring role of a judge on "Hill Street Blues" (NBC, 1981-87) while turning in comic performances in "Mr. Mom" (1983) and "City Slickers" (1991). Once he landed the role of Hank, Tambor quickly emerged as a fan favorite, thanks to his many sparring matches with the fictional late night talk show host (Garry Shandling) and the show's producer (Rip Torn). After the program left the air in 1998, Tambor moved on to supporting roles in major films like "There's Something About Mary" (1998), "Girl Interrupted" (1999) and "Pollock" (2000), before returning to the small screen as the incarcerated George Bluth, Sr. on the hilarious and short-lived critical darling, "Arrested Development" (Fox, 2003-06). Tambor also played George's stoner twin brother, Oscar, to hilarious perfection. Meanwhile, he kept busy working in features like "The Hangover" (2009), while also providing his distinctive baritone voice to a variety of animated works, proving that Tambor remained one of the most highly-sought after character performers in the business. Tambor made the jump to being a lead actor with the debut of the sitcom "Transparent" (Amazon 2014- ), in which he starred as Maura Pfefferman, a late-life transgender woman dealing with her children's reactions to her transformation.
