'Arrested Development's Jeffrey Tambor to guest on 'Law & Order: SVU'


Jeffrey TamborThe Bluth family patriarch, Jeffrey Tambor is coming to 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.' The popular NBC series is in its fourteenth season, amidst a full twenty-four episode slate. Tambor will be appearing in an upcoming episode in a dramatic role--a change of pace for the comedic actor.

Tambor will play Ben Cohen, an attorney defending a popular hip hop recording artist who is arrested by the regular 'SVU' cast. Cohen is described as being "no-nonsense and perhaps a bit overconfident in the popularity of his star client in court." The episode is entitled "Funny Valentine" and does not yet have an air-date. The fourteenth season has already aired twelve of its scheduled twenty-four episodes, with Tambor's episode airing in March at the earliest.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Tambor became famous as Hank Kingsley on the critically-acclaimed and award-winning 'The Larry Sanders Show' on HBO (presently available on Netflix). Tambor brought an earnest bufoonery to his sidekick role on the program. More recently, Tambor has played a dual role on the cult comedy 'Arrested Development,' both as the intelligent and stern George Bluth and his dim-witted, drug-addled twin brother.

The new season of 'Arrested Development,' starring Tambor, will debut on Netflix in May. An 'Arrested Development' feature film is also presently in production.

'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' airs on NBC.
