Eddie Murphy is returning to his TV comedy roots.
“Saturday Night Live” recently announced the hosts for its first shows of the 2019-20 season and Murphy — who was a “SNL” cast member from 1980 to 1984 and left a towering legacy behind — is returning for the first time since he left (sans his brief and comedy-less appearance during the “SNL” 40th anniversary special in 2015). We aren’t sure what to expect in his return as host. Could we see a revival of his popular “SNL” character Buckwheat or motivational guru Velvet Jones? Let’s take a look at the possibilities below:
The timing of this return would make a lot of sense. The children’s TV personality Mr. Rogers has been the topic of a tear-jerker of a documentary and an upcoming film with Tom Hanks and the Emmy-nominated Matthew Rhys “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” Could we see Mr. Robinson take us to see President Trump in the Magical Land of Make Believe?
