Have you ever wondered what Stormtroopers and First Order officers talk about over lunch in the Starkiller Base canteen? Kylo Ren, commander of the First Order, certainly has—or so Saturday Night Live would like us to believe.
Portrayed by Adam Driver, who hosted the episode of SNL and played the moody, Vader-esque villain in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren adopts the alias of “Matt the Radar Technician” and attempts to infiltrate the lower ranks of his employees. Though he may be strong with the dark side of the Force, Ren’s grasp on subtlety seems decidedly less skilled.
“I’m 90% sure Matt is Kylo Ren,” Zack, a Lt. Colonel played by Taran Killam, comments to the camera after Ren makes his undercover debut. But Zack and Ren develop a connection, bonding over the death of Zack’s son, an aspiring Stormtrooper who ran afoul of Ren’s volatile temper.
Did Ren’s undercover experience change the villain and make him see the error of his ways? Judge for yourself with SNL’s “Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base” Digital Short, featuring Adam Driver, Taran Killam, Bobby Moynihan, and Leslie Jones.
