Steve Martin, the Emmy and Grammy-winning artist, has recently announced that he will reduce his professional commitments and work less following the end of “Only Murders in the Building,” the Hulu real-crime parody that he co-created.
Martin has stated that he will not look for other movies or appearances in cameos after the show ends.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Martin asserted that he would be able to spend more time with his wife and daughter if he reduced his professional commitments. He stated that he is no longer willing to relocate for filming and disappear for three months.
Martin, a comedian, actor, author, and playwright, has started to cut back on his appearances in Hollywood movies in recent years, and his most recent full-length acting appearance was in Ang Lee’s 2016 movie “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.” He is also a skilled banjo player and still performs all over the country.
The next documentary by Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville will center on Martin’s 60-year career, and the project will be co-produced by A24. Martin has received three Emmy nominations this year for “Only Murders in the Building,” including best comedy series, best comedy series writing, and best lead actor in a comedy series.
