Season 3 of Only Murders in the Building threw us right into the action from the get-go, as the finale of Season 2 had left us with the on-stage death of Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd), who was set to star in Oliver Putnam’s (Martin Short) newest play, Death Rattle. Season 3 picked up right where we left off, and ever since that fateful moment on stage took place, we’ve been tracking our favorite trio of citizen detectives on their journey to figure out just who is responsible for Glenroy’s death. We’ve been given quite a few top-notch guest stars this season, with Meryl Streep and Jesse Williams as welcome additions to the cast. The only one that we didn’t expect to see, however, ended up being Matthew Broderick, who took on the tough role of himself for Episode 7.
Only Murders in the Building Season 3 used Matthew Broderick to his full potential, whereas in Painkiller he was miscast.
