Playing Jeffrey Tambor Shuts Down Rumors That Caitlyn Jenner Will Guest Star on 'Transparent'

Maura Pfefferman and Caitlyn Jenner won’t be performing together in the Trans Got Talent variety show anytime soon.

Jeffrey Tambor -- who plays the Pfefferman family patriarch-turned-matriarch on Amazon’s Transparent -- did tell ET on Sunday's Golden Globes red carpet that the reality star is a fan of his series, though.

“She told me that she watched the show and she is a fan,” he said. “And I of her!”

“What an interesting world it is, you know?” the actor, who won Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical in 2015, added. “Here is this fictive show that we have, and there’s her show, and there is this wonderful revolution that is going on in the world. It's great.”

Still, don’t expect Jenner to pop up in the Palisades anytime soon.

Creator Jill Soloway previously suggested that the I Am Cait star might appear in the show’s second season. “I don’t know if she’d want to act," Soloway said. "But we definitely want to incorporate the fact that she came out into this season. Just to have that base conversation somewhere in a scene, for sure.”

Now, Tambor has puts that rumor to rest. "I don't think that's our show, no," he explained.

“I think she will always be in Maura’s head,” he offered. But Tambor would be more than happy to have Jenner visit set. “She can come to craft service anytime,” he said with a smile. “I will walk her around and give her finger sandwiches.”

The 71-year-old actor also recalled a dinner he had with the former Olympian, telling ET, “We just talked and chatted. She was very, very inspirational to us. She said really nice things about the show.”

“It's an interesting world,” he reiterated. “There are people who are like my character, Maura Pfefferman, who has a lot of money and has a lot of power and shops at Gelson's. And there are a lot of people in the transgender community who don't have that power and don't have that money and don't have the proper wig yet, so I am rooting for everybody.”

Both Tambor and Jenner were on the receiving end of jokes during Ricky Gervais’s Golden Globes monologue. Of Jenner, the comedian said, “She became a role model for trans people everywhere, showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes. She didn’t do a lot for women drivers, but, you can’t have everything.”
