Adam Driver, 36, simply took us again to the First Order on this sketch — however not in the way in which we had been anticipating! “I haven’t been the best boss lately, I’ve been a little distracted with some personal drama,” Adam as his Star Wars alter-ego Kylo Ren pronounces within the Undercover Boss themed sketch. It seems that the skit takes place proper after Kylo killed his dad Han Solo, precipitated a hearth on his mother Princess Leia’s spacecraft and is on a mission to seek out Rey. His resolution? To pose as Randy, an entry stage intern, to get a greater sense of what’s happening at work. Hey, even intergalactic area villains should take care of troublesome staff!
“Hey guys, I’m Randy, the new intern,” he introduces himself to the remainder of his employees — and will get issues began with just a little workplace gossip! “What do you guys think, when Kylo Ren offers Rey his hand for the second time, do you think she’ll take it?” When a staffer reveals she doesn’t care, Kylo appeared — erm — just a little offended! It seems Randy doesn’t get fairly crimson carpet remedy that Supreme Leader Kylo often does, and his day-to-day includes boring duties like wrangling droids and getting espresso. Princess Leia’s solely son later got invited to an intern occasion, the place it appeared like issues had been taking a optimistic flip. After an evening of dancing and drinks, nevertheless, the First Order chief was offended by one other staffers feedback. When a fellow intern pronounces she desires to in the future “fly like Luke Skywalker,” Ren didn’t take kindly — and busted out his crimson mild saber! “You’ll die like him too,” he introduced as he plunged the saber proper by means of her coronary heart. “I made four new friends and only killed one of them — I’d say that’s a pretty good start!” he introduced with a thumbs-up. We guess so?
Adam has portrayed Darth Vader’s grandson Kylo Ren within the sequel trilogy movies and has turn into an iconic Star Wars character in his personal proper! Conflicted between his darkish and lightweight sides, Kylo — born Ben Solo — lastly discovered peace in The Rise of Skywalker. “The things about that character that I find painful, that I really relate to, I kind of prefer to keep to myself,” the San Diego native spilled to Vanity Fair about enjoying the controversial function, noting that he took inspiration from his time within the navy. “There’s something obviously militant about [Kylo Ren] that makes sense. How he responds to things is probably physically quicker than most, because he’s on edge — they’re at war.”
“Third time hosting, it’s a new year,” Adam might be saying as he wandered the hallways in a hilarious promo launched final week. “I know all of those people, let’s hope they’re ready for me!” Entering Studio 8H, he rapidly seen that each one the vacation decorations had been nonetheless up! “They haven’t cleaned from Christmas,” he murmured as a maid stated, “You clean…start with the tree.” While Adam tried to insist that he’s “hosting this week,” he finally agreed to “clean some of it.” Now that’s a complete new spin on double responsibility! We aren’t fairly certain that he’ll be invited again for janitorial responsibility, as his thought of cleansing consisted of, um, leaving the tree on a busy NYC sidewalk!
