Norm Macdonald Just Tweeted The Story Of Why Eddie Murphy Wasn’t In A Sketch At SNL40



At SNL40 on Sunday, we were all treated to a delightful Celebrity Jeopardy sketch.

In it, Keenan Thompson played Bill Cosby for a Video Daily Double. Unbeknownst to us, that was originally going to be Eddie Murphy. On Twitter, Norm Macdonald just told a behind-the-scenes tale of why that wasn’t to be.

(Note: I’m just pulling the Murphy specific tweets here, but you should read all of Macdonald’s feed from this evening. He goes in-depth on the week before SNL40)

Flash forward a bit.

There you have it.
