3 Time Oscar Winner Meryl Streep Joins Hit Non-TV Show, “Only Murders in the Building” According to Director and to Selena Gomez


Meryl Streep is in the building. She’s joined Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez in the non TV Hulu show, “Only Murders in the Building.” Director Adam Shenkman posted the notice to Facebook.

It’s a great idea for Meryl, a three time Oscar winner. She’s taken a short break from working, and this is a great way to come back. Will she be the murderer, the one who killed Paul Rudd at the end of last season? Or will she make brief appearances like Shirley MacLaine?

Streep has done very little television since becoming the top tier movie star with “Sophie’s Choice” in 1982. She won an Emmy for playing Ethel Rosenberg in 1993’s “Angels in America.” A couple of years ago she appeared in the HBO series, “Big Little Lies,” where she was nominated for an Emmy. In 1978, at the start of her career, she won an Emmy for her role in the CBS mini series, “Holocaust.”
