Paul Rudd has joined the cast of “Only Murders in the Building.”
Hulu confirmed to Variety that he will star in the show’s third season after making a cameo as Broadway star Ben Glenroy in Season 2 finale “I Know Who Did It.” It has not yet been announced whether Rudd will appear in a series regular, recurring or guest capacity.
“Paul Rudd, after making an auspicious entrance into the world of our show at the end of Season 2 as Ben Glenroy, is someone we clearly want to know more about and see in our upcoming Season 3 — as he is a clear source of many upcoming questions and, as ever with our show, many twists yet to come!” series co-creator John Hoffman said in a statement to Variety.

And here’s series co-creator John Hoffman’s answers about Paul Rudd joining the series.
TVLINE | Tell me about casting Paul Rudd as Murder Victim No. 3!
Paul is a good friend of Marty’s and has been for a little while. He also had worked with Selena on a lovely film [for Netflix], The Fundamentals of Caring. And he has revered Steve Martin since he was a kid. He seemed like a logical person to go to with a ridiculous request, which was, “Can you come be in the last five minutes of Season 2, potentially with an option to return [for] Season 3?”
TVLINE | So it’s safe to assume Rudd will return? You won’t just have a body double sprawled out on stage for the entirety of Season 3?
The hope is that he doesn’t get some huge thing that takes him away [from us], but I’m pretty sure we’re in good shape. Our victims play major parts in the season, so we’re really excited to have him be a part of it. [Source]
TVLINE | How did you manage to keep Rudd’s casting under wraps?
I honestly don’t know. I got all excited on one of the days Paul was here. It was actually a costume fitting day [for him], for Episode 10. We had a huge amount of the cast assembled in Bunny’s apartment [when] Paul came by to say hello, so I just said, “This is too good, let’s take a picture!” So we took a picture, and then I was, like, “Oh, no!” I think someone posted it somewhere. Thank God nothing was given away in that picture, but it did get out a little bit. I think people started wondering, like, “Is Paul Rudd just visiting the set to see his friends?”
