Comedian Eddie Murphy may return to his roots and appear on the show that gave him his first big break Saturday Night Live, this weekend.
Murphy, who is making a comeback this year with a new movie “Tower Heist,” and a new gig hosting the Oscars, is rumored to be making an appearance this Saturday, when his “Tower Heist” co-star, Ben Stiller, hosts SNL.
The New York Post reports:
A perfect storm is brewing for Eddie Murphy to make his first appearance on this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” since leaving the show in 1984 and igniting a feud with creator Lorne Michaels.
Work is going on behind the scenes for Murphy to pop up on the NBC show when his “Tower Heist” co-star, Ben Stiller, hosts Saturday night, we’re told. Murphy’s hosting the next Oscar telecast, which happens to be produced by “Tower” director Brett Ratner.
