Will Ferrell Better Be Bringing More Cowbell to the 'SNL' 40th Anniversary Celebration

Here are 8 Saturday Night Live characters we need Will Ferrell to bring back at the 40th anniversary celebration.

We can hardly contain our excitement!

The Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special  is right around the corner and we cannot stop fanaticizing about all the incredible characters, past castmembers and guest hosts we might get to see in Studio 8H again.

One alum we can’t wait to see return to the stage: Will Ferrell. Yep, that's right. He'll be back … he just has no clue what he'll be doing when he gets there.

"I have no idea what the show is going to be like. I keep asking some of my fellow cast mates, like, 'Do you know what's going on?' and they're just like, 'Nope'," Will told ET's Brooke Anderson. "We're just showing up and it should be kind of an amazing 3 hours of television."

Since Will isn't sure yet which of his iconic characters he'll be reprising on Feb. 15, we’ve come up with our very own dream list.
