Live from New York, really? The least likely 'SNL' hosts

Yardbarker Logo By Sean Keane of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 26: After a decades-long feud with the show, no one thought Eddie Murphy would ever return to SNL. But 35 years after he left, Murphy returned to Studio 8H. Murphy was one of "SNL’s" many unlikely hosts over the years, including presidential candidate Steve Forbes, mayor Ed Koch, journalist Jimmy Breslin, athletes like a pre-disgraced Lance Armstrong and a post-assault Nancy Kerrigan and classic stars like Broderick Crawford and Ricky Ricardo himself, Desi Arnaz. They’ve had blind hosts like Ray Charles, and old hosts like 80-year old Ruth Gordon, 88-year-old Betty White and 80-year-old Miskel Spillman, the winner of the show’s “Anyone Can Host” contest. Truly anyone can host "SNL" — you just wouldn’t have expected it to be these people.
