Upon the show's 40th anniversary, the photogs talk turkey (as in Paul Simon's suit) and Timberlake.
It has been a wild and crazy 40 years of big laughs, biting satire -- and, of course, unforgettable music. Saturday Night Live celebrates its 40th anniversary on Feb. 15 with a three-hour special and Saturday Night Live: The Book (Taschen), featuring photos of onstage and behind-the-scenes action. The show has launched numerous actors and comedians, but has also hosted legendary musicians. Edie Baskin and Mary Ellen Matthews, the photographers of the program's commercial-break bumper portraits, captured them all (Baskin until 1999, and Matthews ever since).
