Ryan Seacrest had an awkward moment with actor Jeffrey Tambor on Live with Kelly and Ryan this week.
Tambor is of course best-known for his roles in Arrested Development (which has just been confirmed for season five) and Transparent, but Seacrest wanted to talk about an earlier role of his – when he played the creepy subway guy in the 1990 film Ghost.
Only problem is, that wasn’t him. And Tambor wanted to make sure the talk show host wouldn’t live it down.
The entire studio can be heard laughing as Tambor explains to Seacrest that not only is he not that actor, whose name is Vincent Schiavelli, but that the actor in question is dead.
“What is wrong with you?” he exclaims to Seacrest. Apparently, it’s not the first time he’s been mistaken for Schiavelli.
