We knew going in that the SNL 40th anniversary special would be chock-full of just about every famous person who has ever walked within spitting distance of 30 Rockefeller Plaza and the opening monologue was quick to make use of this genuinely insane temporary cast of stars.

Merciful Zeus, if you thought Eddie Murphy returning to ‘SNL’ after 31 years for the 40th anniversary special on February 15 was big enough, wait until you get a load of the full roster.

'Forrest Gump,' the classic film that helped launch Tom Hanks into the beloved Oscar-winning, too-awesome-for-words actor he is today, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and moviegoers will be able to see it return to theaters in IMAX on September 5.
