Episode 7 Only murders in the building two exceptional guest stars play themselves. Obviously, if you haven’t seen this episode yet, don’t continue reading.
In an interview with The Wrap, showrunner John Hoffman spoke about the cameo by Matthew Broderick, who plays himself:
I’ve known Matthew for many years and he was obviously a natural choice for this show. In comedies, he’s just a monster who shows up in a way that only he can. Do we want to talk about the writers who wrote those angry lines about Ferris Bueller and how he recited them with gusto? I love seeing them all jump up, come over and play along.
He is very smart and funny. So he immediately felt the pleasure of being able to play fair with both his personality and his career.
Besides Broderick, last night’s episode featured another brief cameo from television, comedy and theater icon: Mel Brooks:
On this day, we paid tribute to our Hulu boss Billy Rosenberg, who just directed History of the World: Part II. He told me, “I know a guy who knows Mel very, very closely. Maybe I can help you with that scene,” I thought he was joking. And then it was the best day with Mel Brooks on FaceTime when we got everything right at the premiere.
