Eddie Murphy's highly anticipated return to Saturday Night Live for the show's 40th anniversary was lacking one vital component: a performance.
So what happened?
Former SNL cast member Norm Macdonald revealed on Twitter Wednesday that it was his job to convince Murphy, 53, to impersonate Bill Cosby in the "Celebrity Jeopardy" sketch.
But Macdonald, 51, was not successful. And Cosby, 77, is grateful.

Eddie Murphy made his big return to Saturday Night Live on Sunday night when he made a guest appearance during the show's star-studded 40th anniversary special.
The comedian, 53, was given a heartfelt introduction by Chris Rock, who credited Murphy as his comedy inspiration. "I wanted to be Eddie Murphy," Rock said.
He also said that Murphy helped save SNL, which was in a ratings slump when he joined in 1981 at the age of 19, making him the second-youngest cast member in the show's long history. (The youngest cast member ever would be Anthony Michael Hall, who joined the show when he was 17 back in 1985.)
