Lorne Michaels put together an all-star lineup for the "SNL 40" Weekend Update segment: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Jane Curtin acted as hosts, while Oscar nominees Edward Norton and Emma Stone did impressions of their favorite Weekend Update guests (Stefon and Roseanne Roseannadanna, respectively). But it was Melissa McCarthy's impersonation of / tribute to Chris Farley's Matt Foley, motivational speaker, that was an Update highlight. Dressed just like Farley's Foley, McCarthy had the late star's mannerisms down cold, and even destroyed a piece of set: the Weekend Update desk.

"SNL" also released clips of Stone as Gilda Radner's Roseanne Roseannadanna and Norton as Bill Hader's Stefon. Watch those below.
