Eddie Murphy returning for ‘SNL’s’ 40th

SHARE Eddie Murphy returning for ‘SNL’s’ 40th

It hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, but Eddie Murphy himself recently said he’s headed to New York for “Saturday Night Live’s” 40th anniversary celebration in mid-February.

Murphy made the announcement Tuesday during his NewsOne Now interview with host Roland Martin.

He hasn’t been back since leaving the show three decades ago — in part because he felt disrespected.

Murphy found one SNL sketch especially bothersome. It features former cast member David Spade, who holds up a photo of Murphy circa his flop “Vampire in Brooklyn” and says, “Look, children, a falling star.”

Murphy carped about it and essentially shunned the show that launched his career.

“I felt s—– about that for years, but now, I don’t have none of that,” he told Rolling Stone in a 2011 cover story. “I wouldn’t go to retrospectives, but I don’t let it linger.”

Apparently not.
