Stop the presses! The star-studded Hulu series Only Murders in the Building has added Meryl Streep – a.k.a. one of the best actors of our generation – to its cast for the third season.
Steve Martin revealed yesterday (Jan. 17) that Streep has joined the cast of the hit comedy series by sharing a black and white photo of himself and the star alongside Martin Short, Selena Gomez and Paul Rudd.
He captioned the image, “The filming of Season 3 of ‘Only Murders in the Building’ has begun! A cast to dream of.”
The post, which has since been viewed over seven million times, gathered responses from the show’s team and other entertainment personalities. The show’s official Twitter account commented on the tweet, writing, “It is an honor to have Meryl in our building!” and Hulu expressed, “Our excitement is off the charts.”
Gomez also shared a sneak peek of the Mamma Mia! star joining the cast. She posted a video with her aforementioned costars with the caption, “I could cry. Season 3 is coming!”
In the video, Gomez says to viewers, “Hey guys, we’re on set! What are we shooting? Season 3! The gang is back.” She pans the camera to get Martin and Short in the frame. “Yay! Could this honestly get any better? Oh wait…”
Gomez then focuses the camera on Rudd, who made a cameo in the Season 2 finale and will reprise his character in the following installment. “Well, I do think it could get a little bit better…” he says before Streep appears.
“Steve, do you want a pillow?” Streep asks Martin, before asking “Marty” if there’s anything he needs. Short answers, “Just the tea that I had asked for half an hour ago, thank you.” When Streep asks Gomez, the Disney star says, “I’m okay. Thank you, ma’am. You’re sweet.”
Along with Streep and Rudd, Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams is also set to guest star in the series, per Variety. In the past, memorable cameos in the series haved included Tina Fey, Sting, Jane Lynch and Nathan Lane. Some have expressed that this upcoming cameo line-up is an upgrade from the previous season, which saw Cara Delevingne and Amy Schumer make appearances.
