Adam Driver stars in one of the top ‘SNL’ skits on YouTube 

Driver hosted Saturday Night Live in season 41. Because Star Wars was making a resurgence, it was a focal point for Driver’s first time hosting. In the Undercover Boss skit mimicking the show of the same name, Kylo Ren (Driver) goes undercover as Matt, a radar technician at the Starkiller Base. To date, the SNL skit has 55 million views. When the Star Wars actor returned to SNL in 2020, the show reprised their take on Undercover Boss and Driver’s role as Kylo Ren in a “where are they now” skit.
