The higher ups at NBC are pulling out all the stops in support of ‘Saturday Night Live’s 40-year anniversary. The landmark, comedy sketch show that helped catapult Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan and others to stardom is bringing back a dozen of the show’s alums as well as some other famous faces from the entertainment world. E! announced 50 Cent, Chris Rock, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake and more would join previously confirmed guests such as Murphy and Garrett Morris.
‘They’re actually having a 40th anniversary I think in two weeks,’ Murphy told TV One’s Roland Martin in January. ‘I’m going to that, and that’ll be the first time I’ve been back since I left.’
The exhaustive list of SNL’s scheduled guests for the February 15 airing of the 40-year anniversary show is as follows:
