“We were very happy just doing the live show,” the actor said. “There may be a natural end to that—somebody gets sick, somebody just wears out—but I wouldn't do it without Marty. When this television show is done, I’m not going to seek others. I’m not going to seek other movies. I don’t want to do cameos. This is, weirdly, it.”
Martin has been making us laugh for over a decade. With starring roles in movie/television shows like Cheaper By the Dozen, The Pink Panther and most recently Only Murders in the Building, it’s hard to accept the Hollywood actor may be saying goodbye to acting forever.
Why is he considering retirement, you may ask? Though he didn’t reveal the exact reason in the interview, it’s possibly because he wants to spend more time with his family. Martin and his wife, Anne Stringfield, share a nine-year-old daughter named Mary.
He shared that he wants to be more present for his family and doesn’t want to be away for long periods. “I have a family life that’s really fun,” he told the publication. “To film a movie now, to go someplace else to live, I’m not willing to do that anymore. I can’t disappear for three months.”
We support your decision, Steve (but we’ll still miss you).
