At 77 years old, Steve Martin has confirmed that the recent rumors are actually true

After a career which spanned six decades, legendary actor and comedian Steve Martin was ready to call it quits. But then a new show came, Only Murders in the Building, earning him three Emmy nominations. What followed was a stage show, a new book, and plenty more projects, but this time, he is truly winding his career down.

This incredibly versatile man became a household name when he joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live.” His immense acting talent and his wit took his career to a whole new level and he became a familiar face on our screens, bringing laughter to millions of fans.

Martin has plenty of awards under his belt and the list of films he played in throughout the course of his career is relatively long.

Among the rest, he’s known for classics such as ‘Pink Panther’, ‘Cheaper by the Dozen’, and ‘Father of the Bride,’ among the rest.

As most people tend to retire when they reach the age of sixty-something, Martin didn’t only do projects and films at that age, but he also became a father for the first time ever when he and wife Anne Stringfield welcomed a daughter in 2012. At the time, Martin was 67.

Speaking of the decision to pack up his career, Martin said, “There’s a time in your career when people are dying to see you… Now is the time in my career when I’m the one who’s got to show up.”

When it comes to his show Only Murders in the Building, Martin created alongside John Hoffman, starring Martin himself, singer-actress Selena Gomez, and Martin Short, the 77-year-old comedian told Variety, “I’m very happy with my character not growing. They always say, ‘What’s the arc of the character? What does he learn?’ Once you get to 75, there’s not a lot left to learn, there’s only more mistakes. So I don’t worry about those things. [It’s about] being true to the character. If Marty Short is true to Oliver, and I’m true to Charles, then we can’t go wrong. They’re real people.”

He then added, “When this television show is done, I’m not going to seek others. I’m not going to seek other movies. I don’t want to do cameos. This is, weirdly, it.”

Not many can say they had a career as outstanding as that of Steve Martin. Saying goodbye to Hollywood with a win in his pocket is possibly the best kind of farewell.
