'Only Murders in the Building' Adds Molly Shannon

The critically-acclaimed comedy mystery series starring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez has tapped Molly Shannon for the upcoming fourth season.

AceShowbiz - Molly Shannon has become a new addition to the cast of "Only Murders in the Building". The 59-year-old actress will team up with Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez in season four of the comedy-mystery series.

According to Deadline, Molly will play the part of a Los Angeles-based business woman who gets drawn into the world of the investigation in New York.

The Emmy-nominated actress previously spent six seasons on "Saturday Night Live" while she also had a starring role in Showtime's "I Love That for You". What's more, Molly had a guest role in the original installment of "The White Lotus", the award-winning anthology TV series.

"Only Murders in the Building" has become a big success since the show premiered in 2021 - but Martin Short previously admitted to having some doubts about working with Selena Gomez.

The 73-year-old actor told PEOPLE, "The first day we shot, I had never met Selena. Because of COVID, we'd only Zoomed. And I was driving to work and I thought, 'I wonder what Selena's could be like? I mean, she could be a nightmare. She could be a pop princess nightmare.' Right away - from the first second we started to the make-up room - it was, like, fabulous."

Martin also revealed that he admires Selena's professional attitude. He said, "[She's] so good, so talented, such a pro - it's fabulous."

Prior to that, Selena heaped praise on her "Only Murders in the Building" co-stars. The brunette beauty initially felt anxious about working with the likes of Martin and Steve Martin, but she ultimately relished the experience.

Selena told The Wrap, "Working with Steve and Marty, I was terrified at first, but relieved that comedy happened to be in my comfort zone. If anything, they've helped sharpen my skills."
