Jeffrey Tambor has signed on to co-star opposite Ben Afleck in the new Warner Bros thriller, THE ACCOUNTANT. The film revolves around an autistic accountant (Afleck) who handles the books for the world’s most dangerous crime families. Tambor will portray a vertan Mob accountant who doubles as Afleck’s mentor alongside the previously reported cast made up of J.K Simmons, Jon Bernthal, and Anna Kendrick.
This report comes just days after Tambor earned a Gold Globe award for his performance as Maura Pfefferman, a father who reveals he is transgender to his adult children, in the hit drama Transparent. The veteran actor is best known for his roles in the Hangover trilogy and in the very funny sitcom Arrested Development.
Tambor is repped by Gersh and Burstein Company
