Jeffrey Tambor 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.
