Adam Driver hosted Saturday Night Live yesterday, and took his Star Wars character, Kylo Ren, onto a CBS reality series: Undercover Boss.
The episode of Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base hits all of the tropes of the series, including the bad boss disguise and the forced on-the-fly interviews. In order to spy on the stormtroopers becomes Matt, a technician, and Starkiller Base turns out to be a surprisingly normal workplace.
Even in a short amount of time, the SNL writers and set designers managed to flesh out the base to make it a plausible office. It makes perfect sense that all of this would have happened outside of what we saw in the film.
For an SNL pre-taped sketch, it’s extremely high quality with Star Wars-level special effects, and was one of the highlights of the episode, if not its best part.
