Jeffrey Tambor

Can't wait for Netflix's May release of Arrested Development, Season 4? As an appetizer, Bluth family patriarch Jeffrey Tambor will guest star on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU in a role that's a change of pace for the actor.

Tambor, 68, has been cast as Ben Cohen, an attorney hired to defend a popular hip-hop artist after his arrest by the SVU. While Tambor's TV characters are often quite bizarre (any of you remember the short-lived comedies Welcome to the Captain or Bent?), Cohen is described as being no-nonsense and perhaps a bit overconfident in the popularity of his star client in court.

The episode, titled, "Funny Valentine," does not yet have an airdate.
