Steve Martin

Steve Martin seems like he hasn’t aged since his hair turned prematurely grey — and because his frantic comic energy seems boundless.

After years of struggle, Steve Martin scored a Saturday Night Live hosting gig in October 1976 that finally won mass audiences over to his absurdist comedy. From there he packed arenas and made his first film, 1979’s The Jerk (above), a huge hit despite many critics’ failure to recognize its brilliance.

From there he went on a run of hits that continues to this day, including Three Amigos (1986), Roxanne and Planes, Trains and Automobiles (both 1987), Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988), Parenthood (1989), Bowfinger (1999) the Father of the Bride films, the Pink Panther films, and It’s Complicated (2009).

Now 78, he’s currently starring with his Three Amigos pal Martin Short on Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building.
