Host Paul Rudd and musical act One Direction weren't the only special guests on Saturday Night Live this week. Alums Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig returned to the show, and Rudd's Anchorman 2 castmates Will Ferrell (also an SNL vet), Steve Carell and David Koechner also made cameos to sing "Afternoon Delight" with One Direction during Rudd's opening monologue.

Paul Rudd will host the show for the third time on Dec. 7, two weeks before Anchorman 2's release. He'll be joined by musical guest One Direction, coming back for their second stint as musical guest.
