Wow. Ryan Seacrest. Wow!
You can tell the new Live with Kelly And Ryan cohost has a lot on his plate after he very awkwardly mistook Jeffrey Tambor, a guest on the show, for an actor who passed away nearly 12 years ago!
During this extremely cringe-worthy appearance on Wednesday, Ryan said to the Transparent star:
“We talked about the things you have done and are doing, but to me, you’re the scary guy on the subway in Ghost.”
Obviously Jeffrey couldn’t let the TV personality get away with the mix-up!! He deadpanned:
“Oh, this is horrible. You’re gonna be embarrassed. That’s not me… Wow, here we go. He’s dead.”
In case you don’t know who “the scary guy on the subway in Ghost” is, that’s character actor Vincent Schiavelli, who sadly passed away in 2005. The Arrested Development actor continued to jokingly embarrass Seacrest:
“What is wrong with you? I came on to sell a book, not to be insulted. I am hurt. My reps are here, and we are filing an action lawsuit. I came on in good faith.”
Ha! That’s the last time Ryan will EVER make that flub!!
Watch the entire moment go down in all its awkwardness (below)!
