Streep eyed for cameo in "Abbott Elementary"

Well apparently Only Murders in the Building isn't the only Hulu show looking to snag some screen time out of Meryl. Sheryl Lee Ralph has been quoted that she's heard there's a possibility of a cameo from Streep in Ralph's hit mocuseries, Abbott Elementary. Ralph was indicating that she hoped that Denzel Washington could make an appearance on the show, and she happened to mention that Meryl's name has apparently already been floating around, even going as far as suggesting Meryl could play her stepsister. 

I wouldn't mind seeing Meryl join this cast for a small role, especially since we might be getting some good news regarding other projects soon. Abbott Elementary has been critically acclaimed, with multiple Emmy nominations in both its first two seasons, including Quinta Brunson winning last night for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. 


  1. Quinta Brunson addressed this last night on the red carpet, saying she plans to ask properly through agents. So obviously they haven't even checked if she's available let alone interested! As much as I don't want Streep's career to become guest parts on hit series, this could be fun! Can an ABC sitcom afford her rate? Time will tell! #GiveMerylStreepHerOwnSeries

    1. Oh wow I did not catch that on the red carpet. I agree, Darcy. As long as Meryl is doing some bigger stuff I think it'd be fun to see her have a small spot in a show like this. Guest actress in a comedy Emmy?
