The news of beloved actor Steve Martin comes as a surprise.

Maybe Steve Martin is ready to hang up his banjo.

In a recent interview, the Emmy and Grammy-winning performer stated that after “Only Murders in the Building,” the Hulu real-crime parody he co-created, he would “work a bit less.”

“I will not look for others once this television program is over. I’m not going to look for other movies. I refuse to appear in cameos. This is it, strangely,” Martin told The Hollywood Reporter.
