Lane was one of the main stars of the first season, despite the fact that he was less prominent in the second. His character Teddy Dimas had a key role in the case that the main characters finally solved together. The actor was unable to film since he already had a prior commitment for a Broadway musical, and his schedule did not let him join the series again, according to Deadline.

Lane has had a long and illustrious career in Hollywood. Playing in shows like Sex and the City, Modern Family, and American Crime Story. He also participated in films like The Lion King, The Birdcage, and the most recent Beau Is Afraid.

The performer also has a long record of credits in the theatre, having appeared in productions like The Wizard of Oz, The Wind in the Willows, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

What to Expect in Season 3 of Only Murders in the Building?

Only Murders in the Building knows how to capitalize on the resurgence of true crime and murder mysteries. The series follows Mabel, Charles, and Oliver. The three residents of New York’s iconic building The Arconia have a podcast dedicated to solving crimes. It blends the genre made popular by Agatha Christie and her novels but with a comedic tone. It makes fun of the audience’s recent obsession with true-crime stories thanks to Netflix’s documentaries.

The situations they report are true, and they are really experiencing them, so the podcast is not at all fictional. After settling the current case in the season two finale, a new murder shocks the neighborhood. It concerns Ben Glenroy’s passing. He was portrayed by none other than Paul Rudd as the lead actor in Oliver’s play. While the heroes uncover the mystery, the third film will attempt to reconstruct the circumstances that led to his demise.

One of the huge surprises that Hulu revealed for OMITB is Academy Award winner Meryl Streep. It was revealed shortly after it was renewed for a third season. She will appear in the upcoming episodes in addition to Rudd.
