Saturday Night Live let the cat out of the bag during Sunday’s Super Bowl with a series of ads that revealed the guest list for the show’s upcoming anniversary celebration.
Three 30-second promos for the 40th party were short but memorable, presenting a veritable who’s who of SNL’s glittery past.
Another high-profile alum to join the reunion: Eddie Murphy, whose participation for the first time in more than 30 years was announced on the Today show last week.
Even more surprising but no less welcome is the addition of Nicholson – but it’s hardly unprecedented. The actor has made previous uncredited appearances on the late-night show in 1997 and 2007.
SNL‘s 40th anniversary special airs Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
