'Saturday Night Live' takes on 'Star Wars' character Kylo Ren with help from actor Adam Driver

Last night the world felt a great disturbance in the Force when "Saturday Night Live" host Adam Driver took the stage. It was laughter.

The audience was hungry for "Star Wars" jokes and this new padawan did not disappoint. Possibly the biggest standout of the night (besides the Golden Globes sketch) was the spoof of reality TV series "Undercover Boss."

"Saturday Night Live" took Driver's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" character, Kylo Ren, and sneaked him into the staff on his own Starkiller Base from the new film. Watching low-level Stormtroopers complain about Ren's ridiculousness to his exceedingly emo face was pretty great.
