“Honestly, can it get any better? Oh wait!” Selena Gomez teased in a TikTok video.
Who would have thought we’d see the day Meryl Streep stars in a Hulu original series?
Iconic Oscar-winner Steve Martin officially joins Season 3 of Emmy-winning “Only Murders in the Building” alongside Martin Short and Selena Gomez.
“Hey guys! We’re on set,” Gomez said in a behind-the-scenes TikTok video with Martin and Short. “What are we filming? Season 3! The gang is back. Can this honestly get any better? Oh wait!”
Gomez showed Paul Rudd, who appeared in the Season 2 finale, sitting next to Martin during production. Rudd was previously announced as a Season 3 cast member, playing actor Ben Glenroy, who is murdered on the opening night of director Oliver Putnam’s (short) Broadway play.
“Well, I think it could be a little bit better,” Rudd said in the video.
Streep then pops up behind Martin and Gomez and says, “Steve, do you want this pillow?”
Streep still owes him a cup of tea, which she “asked for more than half an hour ago.” Gomez called Streep “sweet,” confirming that the “Mamma Mia” star has turned on the Hulu series.
Streep previously appeared in Season 2 of HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” the limited series “Angels in America,” and the anthology show “Extrapolations” will star Tobey Maguire, Eliza Gonzalez, Edward Norton, Diane Lane, Murray Bartlett, Heather Graham and Marion Cotillard. “Extrapolations” by Scott Z. Burns for AppleTV+ explores the range of climate change impacts through interconnected stories.
Meanwhile, Streep’s role in the Hulu whodunnit “Just Murders in the Building” has been kept under wraps. IndieWire’s Ben Travers praised the series for “strengthening new arcs” through its supporting stars in the series’ “heavily meta” comedy. “Respectful jokes about how hard it can be to pull off a successful sequel to acknowledge the obvious smoothness and hopefully forgive some,” Travers wrote in his Season 2 synopsis. In the first two seasons of the series, Tina Fey, Cara Delevigne, Amy Ryan, Sting, Nathan Lane, Michael Rappaport and Amy Schumer were among the star ensemble cast. Additional casting for Season 3 will be available shortly before the premiere.
