Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary special is airing this weekend— not on Saturday (probably because of you weirdos who want to do something romantic or whatever for Valentine’s Day), but on Sunday night (live). To make this show an extra big deal, basically every human being on the planet will be making a cameo. It probably helps that Lorne Michaels has worked with every actor/musician/politician alive today. Apparently, he invited every host, almost every cast member (sorry, Brooks Wheelan), and a bunch of musical guests. Here’s who’s RSVP’d so far:
Robert De Niro
That’s sixty guests. SIXTY. Plus, I assume, the regular cast. At this point, why not just round it up to an even million? In order to accommodate all those cameos, Lorne has tacked an extra half hour onto the special, so it’ll run from 8 o’clock to 11:30 this Sunday night.
