SNL Skit Shows Kylo Ren Edition of Undercover Boss
Can't wait until 2017 to see Adam Driver play Kylo Ren again? If so, you're in luck – Adam Driver has returned to the role for an SNL edition of Undercover Bosses, in which the leader of the First Order disguises himself as "Matt the radar technician" to see how his employees at Starkiller Base really feel about him and his mission.  


SNL has had a long history with doing Star Wars centric parodies, but this one may top them all. Driver is an excellent actor, and so he not only made a great ultra-serious villain in The Force Awakens, but he also does a great parody of the character in the SNL clip as well. 

Perhaps the funniest moment in the clip was after his coworker told Kylo about how he recently lost his son. Following that, Kylo says to the audience, "Hearing that Zach lost his son really struck a nerve with me – especially since I'm the one who killed him." He then gives Zach a childish "feel-better" card with a pop-out rainbow that says "After the rain comes a rainbow." It also included a personal note with a hand drawn frowny face saying "Sorry I killed your son."  


With Rogue One arriving at the end of 2016 and with Star Wars staying so prevalent in the public's consciousness, it wouldn't be surprising to see more skits taking place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away throughout the near future. If you're just dying to see more Kylo, though, the Emo Kylo Ren Twitter account should have you covered — as long as you're not looking for anything too serious, of course.
