'Only Murders in the Building' Sneak Peek: Oliver Hatches a Plan to Investigate a Famous Suspect (Exclusive Video)

Hulu murder mystery’s fourth episode, titled ”The Sting,“ drops Tuesday

“He ran with everything we asked him to do — he was completely into it,” co-creator John Hoffman said of the cameo in an interview with EW. “And beyond that, he came on set so prepared.”

Hoffman said the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer improvised part of his dialogue in the elevator, adding the line ,”I have a dog. I don’t like him either.”

“He threw it in, in a first take,” Hoffman said. “Marty and I were talking right after the first take: ‘Oh my God, he’s hysterical!’ He just dove in. He didn’t surprise us all because he’s brilliant. But I think the gamesmanship was clear from the moment he stepped on set.”

“Only Murders in the Building” hails from Steve Martin, Dan Fogelman and John Hoffman. The trio executive produces alongside Martin Short, Selena Gomez, Jamie Babbitt and Jess Rosenthal.

The Hulu comedy follows three strangers (Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez) who “share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one,” Hulu’s description reads. “When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth. As they record a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building which stretch back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another. Soon, the endangered trio comes to realize a killer might be living amongst them as they race to decipher the mounting clues before it’s too late.”

Episode four of “Only Murders in the Building,” titled “The Sting,” drops Tuesday, Sept. 7.
