Adam Driver's Kylo Ren goes on Undercover Boss in hilarious SNL skit

Fresh off his introduction as the new Big Bad in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Adam Driver hosted Saturday Night Live — and Kylo Ren’s trademark temper tantrums were on full, hilarious display.

Arguably the best skit of the night focused on Driver’s alter ego Kylo Ren as he goes undercover on Starkiller Base to see what it’s really like to work as a grunt in the First Order. If there were ever a CEO who needed to go on Undercover Boss, it’s Kylo. Driver plays up the social awkwardness perfectly, and he even pulls out some trademark Force moves when he doesn’t like what the staff have to say about their mysterious leader.

Not surprisingly, it doesn’t take the stormtroopers long to figure out the weirdly intense “Matt the radar technician” might not be who he claims. Even better: It seems the mildly emo Darth Vader wannabe might have even learned a lesson or two from the experience. Err, maybe.

Check out the skit below and let us know what you think:

"Kylo Ren is SHREDDED!"
