The Top Five Jeffrey Tambor Movie Roles of His Career

Jeffrey Tambor is an actor, a voice artist and a popular comedian who has been entertaining the American public for decades. He is well known for the roles that he has played in popular television series. These include Hank Kingsley on “The Larry Sanders Show,” and as Oscar Bluth and George Bluth Sr. on “Arrested Development.” He also served as a voice actor for the “Little Rascals” television series in the early 1980s. But he’s also made some significant contributions in film. He’s multi-talented and can deliver in any film genre from comedy to drama.

Here are the top 5 Jeffrey Tambor movie roles of his career.

1. “Meet Joe Black”

Tambor appeared as Quince, the son in law of mogul William Parrish played by Anthony Hopkins. His character was unique in that he spoke directly with death, played by Brad Pitt, and gave him a few life lessons. Quince had a down to earth perspective on what makes a healthy relationship in humans. His perspective that love is knowing the worst thing about someone and being okay with it was extraordinary. We get a good dose of how well Tambor can pull of a serious role in this film and his does it flawlessly by playing a flawed character that really, in the end, has his act together.

2. “Mr. Mom”

Tambor played the role of Jinx in the 1983 movie “Mr. Mom.” The film focuses on a husband who has been laid off from his job (Michael Keaton). His wife (Terri Garr) works to support the family and he becomes a stay at home dad. He doesn’t have a clue what he is doing. Jinx is the guy who gives him the news that he’s been laid off. He tries to candy coat the event by pointing out that he’s leaving with his pension and then offers to throw in a month worth of gas money. This tips Keaton over the edge and he attempts to choke him.

3. “The Hangover I,II and III”

Jeffrey appears in three versions of the popular film “The Hangover” as Sid. Sid is Alan’s father and also his best friend. He tries to understand Alan’s off the wall behaviors but never really does get him. He is the one who coined the phrase “Remember, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Except for herpes. That sh**’ll come back with you.” His last words in part II to Alan are “Your mother and I can’t take this any more” and then has a heart attack.

4. “Girl Interrupted”

This 1999 film tells the story of writer Susanna Kaysen (played by Winona Rider) and her year and a half stay in a mental hospital. The show takes place in the 1960s. Jeffrey Tambor plays the role of Dr. Melvin Potts who tries to assist the girl.

5. “Hellboy II: The Golden Army”

Tambor plays the role of Tom Manning in this film. He’s easily spooked in the cemetery scene and he delivers a great performance with wit and humor, yet he can be serious when he needs to. Always the teacher, he instructs Hellboy on how to properly light a cigar to get the best flavor.
