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. Things got started on the right foot when the always-welcome Steve Martin took the stage ... but then he was joined by Tom Hanks. And then things got really crazy.
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.

Martin Short is a sketch comedy veteran, more comfortable on the Saturday Night Live stage than many of the actual cast members.

Talk about your Christmas come early!

Legendary musician and former Beatle Paul McCartney has made his directorial debut with the short film 'My Valentine,' starring Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp.
