Steve Martin’s career news is sure to disappoint fans

Steve Martin is one of the most prolific and multifaceted artists of his time. In addition to being an actor for over 60 years, he has also been a producer, writer, novelist, musician and director in countless works over the years. From TV shows to major motion pictures to the stage (remember Bright Star?!), Martin is a rare multi-threat in his line of work. But he never took it for granted. He even told The Irish Times in 2021 he had always worried his success would wane.

Despite the fear, Martin’s career hasn’t slowed down — and neither has his personal life. He married writer Anne Stringfield in 2007 and five years later they welcomed a daughter. Now Martin is in his mid-70s while his daughter isn’t quite 10 yet, and fatherhood takes up much of his time, he told AARP. “I think if I had had a kid earlier, I would have been a lousy father because I would have turned my attention to my career,” he admitted to the magazine at the time. “I’m very accommodating with her, and it’s great.”

Given Martin’s penchant for fatherhood, it’s not too surprising to hear his latest career news — no matter how it may sting fans.

Steve Martin seems ready to move on

Some artists find it difficult not to make art. Legend Steve Martin never managed to quit completely because he still enjoys it. “How long have I been doing comedy?” He jokingly asked the Hollywood Reporter. “60 years? I still have fun finding these things [bigger joke reactions.]Still, ahead of his hit show Only Murders in the Building with Martin Short and Selena Gomez (among other artistic projects), Martin was ready to slow down. Now he seems more keen on the idea of ​​doing less – without saying the word retirement, of course.

“When this television show is finished, I will not look for others. I will not look for other films. I don’t want to do cameos,” he explained. Oddly enough, it is. “Nevertheless, Martin is very fond of his popular live shows with Short (don’t believe what they look like today!”). “It may have a natural ending — someone gets sick, someone just gets tired — but I wouldn’t do it without Marty.”
