Steve Martin has revealed that he doesn’t plan on continuing to accept acting roles after Only Murders in the Building comes to an end.
“When this television show is done, I’m not going to seek others. I’m not going to seek other movies. I don’t want to do cameos. This is, weirdly, it,” the actor told The Hollywood Reporter on August 10th.
He continued to share that he has been considering retiring for a while. “We were very happy just doing the live show,” he said, referring to his ongoing You Won’t Believe What They Look Like Today! tour with Martin Short. “There may be a natural end to that — somebody gets sick, somebody just wears out — but I wouldn’t do it without Marty.”
Martin currently stars in the hit Hulu series Only Murders In The Building alongside Martin Short and Selena Gomez. The series is currently airing season 2 and has been renewed for season 3.
Martin got his start in Hollywood as a writer for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in the 1960s. He went on to appear on The Tonight Show and Saturday Night Live. The Emmy Award winner has also held various big screen roles including The Jerk, Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid, Three Amigos, Father of the Bride, Cheaper by the Dozen and more.
