Hilarious 'SNL' Sketch Puts 'Star Wars' Villain Kylo Ren on 'Undercover Boss'

Working for a ruthless, lightsaber-wielding lunatic like Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) in Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn't exactly a fun and rewarding job -- just ask Finn (John Boyega). But to get a firsthand look at employee morale and what actually goes on behind the scenes at the Starkiller Base, the evil First Order boss sheds that Darth Vader-like helmet and goes undercover among his underlings on a new edition of CBS's “Undercover Boss." The hilarious sketch was part of last night's "SNL,'' which Driver hosted.

Disguised as “Matt the Radar Technician," Kylo Ren attempts to blend in among the rank-and-file workers in the base's lunchroom and while out on the job rewiring "calcinators." As shown by hidden cameras at the base, all appears to be going well as he asks the workers things like "You guys like working here?" and "What do you think of Kylo Ren?" But it doesn't take long before Kylo Ren's, uh, Dark Side comes out -- and his fiery red lightsaber.
