Eddie Murphy Set to Host ‘Saturday Night Live’ for the First Tne in 35 Years!

*Heeeeee’s baaaaaaack! “He” is Eddie Murphy and the funnyman is set to do something a lot of folks thought would never happen. He’s killing two birds with one stone, so to speak.

Not only is he returning to his old stomping grounds, “Saturday Night Live,” but he’s also gonna host the dang show!

We know this ’cause “SNL” on Monday announced that Murphy will be hosting the December 21 episode. Yes, it’s big news because it’s his first time doing so in 35 years!!! It’s also huge news for Murphy who rose to fame as a standout “SNL” regular back in the day. He was so big, he even stepped up to host in 1982 when someone canceled at the last minute.

Here’s more via TMZ:

The episode Eddie’s hosting is typically the big blowout before the holiday break … so count on loads of laughs, and probably lots of guest appearances.

Returning to ‘SNL’ is the next piece in Eddie’s return to the limelight. We broke the story … Eddie is locked in talks with Netflix for an undisclosed number of comedy specials, with negotiations hovering around $70 MILLION for the deal.

As you know … he’s also making a long-anticipated big screen return with the ‘Coming to America” sequel. He’s already been spotted on set in Georgia in full regalia as Prince Akeem.

Gotta hand it to Eddie … dude knows how to mount a major comeback!!!
