House Sitter Allegedly Overdoses In Former SNL Star Norm Macdonald's Home

A 23-year-old man was found dead in comedian Norm Macdonald's condominium from what police suspect to be an overdose.

According to multiple reports, Michael Huettner was friends from high school with the Saturday Night Live star's son, and was house-sitting this week as Norm traveled the world.

Unfortunately, Michael's body was reportedly found by his own parents after they hadn't heard from him in some time and went to check on him when his girlfriend told them he had been watching the KFC spokesperson's home and cat.

When Huettner's parents arrived, the door to the home was open, and they walked in to find Michael dead on a bed, surrounded by multiple pills and bottles — including some oxycodone.

The family allegedly told investigators that their son had previous issues with oxy, and thus, police believe the man died from an overdose at the scene.

In the meantime, Macdonald is cooperating fully with authorities, as prescription pills of his own — which were legally prescribed by a doctor — were also found at the scene.

Rest in peace, Michael.

Let's be honest, Adam Sandler hasn't made a really great movie in… well it's been so long we're not sure we can think of that last one we loved!

His first film, The Ridiculous 6, hasn't had the best start though as it faced a bit of controversy after Native American actors walked off set due to some racist and sexist jokes.

Regardless of the drama though, we've got the first trailer (above) and to be honest, it doesn't look all that bad!

Of course, it doesn't hurt that it has a star studded cast that includes Steve Buscemi, Taylor Lautner, Terry Crews, Norm MacDonald, Danny Trejo, Will Forte, Nick Nolte, Rob Schneider, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, and David Spade!

Eddie Murphy Opens Up About Why He Turned Down A Bill Cosby Sketch During SNL40

Hear it straight from the horse's mouth.

Eddie Murphy wants to set the record straight.

Earlier this year, the actor was supposed to impersonate scandalized comedian Bill Cosby during Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary special, but backed out of the sketch.

Now, the Shrek star wants to explain exactly why he declined to do his incredible impression.

The 54-year-old revealed that he just wasn't comfortable with tackling the tender topic because he didn't want to upset anyone involved with the controversial allegations, saying:

"It's horrible. There's nothing funny about it. If you get up there and you crack jokes about him, you're just hurting people. You're hurting him. You're hurting his accusers. I was like, 'Hey, I'm coming back to SNL for the anniversary, I'm not turning my moment on the show into this other thing.'"

While the funnyman admitted he had no desire to to portray the 78-year-old that night, he totally gets why the writers penned the skit, adding:

"I totally understood. It was the biggest thing in the news at the time. I can see why they thought it would be funny, and the sketch that Norm [Macdonald] wrote was hysterical."

What do U think, Perezcious readers? Should Eddie have followed through with the bit? Or did he make the right call in turning it down?
