Eddie Murphy Makes His ‘SNL’ Return

Funnyman Eddie Murphy is making his return to Saturday Night Live after 30 years!

The occasion: SNL’s 40th Anniversary.

Confirming the news in an interview with Roland Martin, the stand up comedian/movie actor, admitted that the reunion hadn’t happened sooner due to timing.

Murphy spent four seasons on the comedy sketch series before hitting the stage in 1984 to pursue a career in stand-up and eventually film.

SNL 40 airs Feb. 15!
