He’s always been known as a great comedic actor, a wild and crazy guy. And today, you can catch Steve Martin alongside Martin Short in Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building.

But catch him while you can — because it sounds as if this will be his last dance.

“When this television show is done, I’m not going to seek others,” Martin said, via The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m not going to seek other movies. I don’t want to do cameos. This is, weirdly, it.”

Martin turns 77-years old on August 14. At the very least, he suspects he will slow down in terms of acting.

“I’m really not interested in retiring. I’m not. But I would just work a little less. Maybe,” he said.

Considered one of Saturday Night Live‘s all-time greats, Martin has also starred in classic movies such as The Jerk, L.A. Story, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Cheaper by the Dozen and Father of the Bride. He has always been a huge draw.

Along with all that, he is an accomplished banjo player, written lyrics for Broadway shows and even authored some books. Not surprisingly, Only Murders in the Building has received multiple Emmy nominations.

Will it truly serve as Martin’s curtain call? Most of his fans sure hope not, but the way he seems to feel now makes it something those fans may want to consider.
