Last night on "Saturday Night Live," host Adam Driver sent up his starring role in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in a hilarious "Undercover Boss" skit that is burning up social media.

In the pre-taped skit, dubbed "Undercover Boss: Star Killer Base," Driver reprises his role as the troubled Kylo Ren, explaining, "You get so caught up restoring the galaxy to its rightful state that you miss what’s going on behind the scenes. I'm looking forward to having some real talk with some real folks." He hides his identity with a blond wig, pretending to be a lowly techie named Matt.

The unsubtle Matt gets pushed around by a supervisor (Leslie Jones), bullied by Stormtroopers, and played for a fool by a soldier (Taran Killam) whose son Ren killed.

Unfortunately, Kylo Ren is not as good an actor as Adam Driver is.

Watch the skit here:
 

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was number three at the U.S. box office in its fifth weekend, and surpassed $1 billion overseas; it is chugging toward the never-before-achieved $2 billion mark worldwide.
