Adam Driver Skits Saturday Night Live

He stars in the HBO comedy, Girls, but this week’s Saturday Night Live host, Adam Driver’s, biggest role of late is playing the evil Jedi, Kylo Ren, in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie.

One of the funnier bits last night had Kylo going undercover in Undercover: Boss. In his monologue, Driver had to deflect castmastes begging for spoilers for the next installment of the franchise. Another favorite bit was Driver as the host of a “Funniest Cat Videos” show meeting his French counterparts.

Overall, last night’s show was a strong return for SNL after the winter hiatus.
