Will Ferrell Returns To SNL
Ferrell, who left “SNL” in 2002 to enjoy a successful film career, has also become an Internet trailblazer by founding Funny Or Die. The comedy website and production house he started with frequent collaborator Adam McKay has become a major destination since its founding in 2006, and even produced its first movie this year, “Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie,” which featured a cameo from Ferrell.
The Ferrell-helmed episode will be the second of three back-to-back shows that will close out “SNL’s” 37th season. The first, on May 5, will be hosted by Giants quarterback Eli Manning with musical guest Rihanna.
