This is the latest casting announcement to be made regarding Only Murders in the Building‘s upcoming season after it was unveiled in the Season 2 finale that Paul Rudd will play the primary murder victim, Ben Glenroy. The character mysteriously died onstage in a play put on by Oliver and starring Charles.

Additional details about Williams’ character remain under wraps at this time, but it’s certainly a welcome addition to the show’s universe, which has also featured the likes of Andrea Martin, Amy Schumer, Sting, Nathan Lane, and many more.
