Three weeks ago on United States of Tara, Max (John Corbett), the inordinately patient husband of Tara (Toni Collette), had a one-night stand with a waitress, Pammy (Joey Lauren Adams), putting a chink in his good-guy armor.
"I first read it at a table read and remember screaming out loud, 'You've got to be f---ing kidding me!'" Corbett tells TVGuide.com, adding that writers told him they wanted to shake up Max this season. "That was a big step to let Max to do that. ... A lot of fans [come up to me] and said, 'Aw, Max! How could you?' They were kidding, but they couldn't believe it. But [the sex scene] was edited down.
