Eddie Murphy has been in Hollywood since the early 80s and after more than 30 years he has become one of the most well known and recognized actors for his comedic chops.

Now at 53 years old and with 53 acting credits to his name, Murphy is going back to where it all began as it has been confirmed he will appear on the 40th Anniversary special of Saturday Night Live on February 15.

Murphy was only 19 when he joined the show full time in 1981 and last appeared on December 15, 1984 as a host, almost a year after finishing as a cast member following his big break in the films Trading Places and Beverly Hills Cop.

“It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it,” Murphy explained of never yet returning to the show. “They’re having a 40th anniversary… I’m going to that. And that will be the first time I’ve been back since I left.” Murphy made the announcement during a phone interview with News One Now after which they were happy to confirm the news tweeting out, “A @tvonetv #NewsOneNow EXCLUSIVE! After 30 years, @eddiemurphy returns to @NBCSNL.”

SNL has kept a tight lip on any other former cast members and huge stars but the 40th Anniversary Special is sure to be crammed full of comedic celebrities hopefully with appearances by Chevy Chase, Mike Myers and Jon Lovitz.
