Only Murders in the Building: British singer Sting to play a cameo
- Selena Gomez's character Mabel Mora doesn't seem to know the musical superstar Sting
- Sting was seen making a short appearance in the trailer of the show
- The show also stars Steve Martin and Martin Shorts in the lead roles
In the trailer of the upcoming Hulu TV show, Only Murders in the Building, British musician Sting makes a quick appearance. Selena Gomez’s character Mabel Mora doesn’t seem to know anything about the musical superstar Sting.
The comedy/murder mystery starring Selena Gomez, Steve Martin and Martin Short revolves around the homicide case of businessman Tim Kono. The trio comes together to solve the case as they love crime stories. They also start a true-crime podcast to document their findings. English musician Sting makes a cameo appearance in the TV series.
Martin Short’s character Oliver suspects the singer-songwriter as the murderer of Tim Kono. In the trailer, Short says, “There’s a very strong chance that the killer is the musical superstar Sting.”
But Selena’s character Mabel seems to have no clue about the superstar. This particular scene comes as a timeless joke that a young person doesn’t know older musicians. When the others suspect Sting as the murderer she refers to him as, ‘The guy from U2?’
The makers since then have released multiple photos of the set at the Upper West Side building. They have also released character teasers of Selena Gomez and Steve Martin. They are yet to post Martin Short’s character teaser.
The show also has released a short video clip introducing the cast of the show. The show will star Aaron Dominguez as Oscar, Nathan Lane as Teddy, Amy Ryan as Ian, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph as Detective Williams.
The shooting for the Hulu TV series started last December at Central Park West. The show will premiere this month on August 31, 2021.
