1984 was the last time Eddie Murphy showed up at Saturday Night Live. It was his final episode as a regular. Since then there has been no return at all even for a two second cameo. I know when Eddie was filming Bowfinger with Steve Martin that Steve asked Eddie to do it and to go back on the show and Eddie came very very close. Now though it looks like he is set to return this Saturday. The NY Post is reporting that Eddie will make a surprise appearance while his current co-star, Ben Stiller is hosting the episode this week. I would love to see him return and would love to see him host again. He kept that show going for the early part of the 80's. The only one missing from above that I loved is Velvet Jones.
