The cast of funny people set to appear on Spike TV’s Eddie Murphy special has just grown by a handful. The network says Jamie Foxx, Adam Sandler, Tyler Perry, Keenen Ivory Wayans and Nick Nolte have committed to appearing on the Eddie Murphy: One Night Only special, which marks the 30th anniversary of Murphy’s stand-up concert film Delirious and the comedy movie 48 Hrs. They’ll be joining previously announced participants Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson, Tracy Morgan, Arsenio Hall, Brett Ratner, Charlie Murphy, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Martin Lawrence on the first-ever televised tribute to Murphy.
 
In addition to the big names confirmed for the tribute, The Roots have tapped to be the show’s house band.
 
The show will tape on November 3rd and air on Spike TV on November 14th.
