Steve Martin said Only murders in the building could be his last role ever.
The 76-year-old veteran actor stars alongside Martin Short and Selena Gomez in the Hulu crime comedy, which concludes its second season on August 23.
While the series has already been renewed for a third season, Martin has revealed his acting career could be after the end too.
“When this television show is finished, I will not look for others,” he said The Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview.
“I will not look for other films. I don’t want to make cameos. Oddly enough, it is.”
The Hollywood legend is currently up against co-star Short in the Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category at this year’s Emmy Awards. The full list of nominees can be found here.
Martin started out as both a stand-up comedian and a television writer. His wide ranging career spans decades during which he has appeared in numerous films including The idiot,The bride’s father, cheaper by the dozen, the pink panther, and Three amigos!.
Only murders in the building marks his first starring role on television, although he has previously appeared in a single episode of 30 rocks in 2008 entitled “Gavin Volure”.
“I have a family life that’s really fun,” Martin continued. “To make a film now, to live somewhere else, I’m not ready for that anymore. I can’t disappear for three months.”
The last two episodes of Only murders in the building The second season will air on Hulu on August 16th and 23rd.
