Melissa McCarthy Pays Tribute to Chris Farley in a Weekend Update to Remember

Saturday Night Live paid tribute to a number of iconic characters on its 40th anniversary special, and "Weekend Update" totally owned the stage. Emma Stone played Roseannadanna, the character originated by Gilda Radner, Edward Norton played Stefon (to perfection), and Melissa McCarthy stood in for the late Chris Farley as Matt Foley, his famously angry character. Did I mention Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Jane Curtin were staffing the desk? Don't worry — Seth Meyers made an appearance, too. Check it out below, and take a look at Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake's cold open, plus the return of The Californians.
