What is Paul Rudd's role in the show?
Rudd first made an appearance in the "Only Murders" Season 2 finale as Broadway star Ben Glenroy.
In the last episode, viewers are taken a year after Charles (Martin), Oliver (Short) and Mabel (Gomez) solved the murder of apartment manager Bunny (Jayne Houdyshell), who died at the end of Season 1.
Charles and Mabel attend the premiere of Oliver’s broadway show starring Charles and Ben, an impolite prominent actor. When the curtain opens, Ben dies soon after giving his opening monologue. Charles is likely to be once again be a suspect in another crime.
“You got to be (expletive) kidding me,” Mabel says as the episode fades to black, teasing a new mystery for the third season: a murder outside the Arconia building.
Fans will likely get more insight into Ben and what led up to his death in the upcoming season.
