Eddie Murphy Wouldn’t Do Cosby on ‘SNL’

According to a long series of tweets from comedian and former Saturday Night Live star Norm Macdonald, Eddie Murphy refused to be part of a skit because he did not want to impersonate Bill Cosby. Macdonald claims he wanted Murphy to impersonate Cosby in a “Celebrity Jeopardy” skit. “He knew the laughs would bring the house down. Eddie Murphy knows what will work on SNL better than anyone,” Macdonald wrote. “Eddie decides the laughs are not worth it. He will not kick a man [Cosby] when he is down." Cosby said Thursday: "I am very appreciative of Eddie and I applaud his actions."

This is what the world missed, from 1987’s Raw.
