Adam Driver Embraces the Dark Side in ‘SNL’ Promo (Video)

The “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” star will host the show on Jan. 16

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” bad guy Adam Driver can’t contain his dark side in a promo for his “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig.

Driver and Kate McKinnon taped the promo at a diner outside of the 30 Rock building for “a fun change of pace,” although Driver thinks that its because the producers don’t trust the new guy.

“I’m gonna order the super sexy host with extra talent and a side of dark mysterious eyes, what about you?” McKinnon asks Driver.

“I’m gonna have the cobb salad,” the Kylo Ren actor responds.

But dinner doesn’t stay cordial for long. When McKinnon grabs Driver’s last fry, he whips out a weapon “Star Wars” fans should be quite familiar with.

Driver will host “Saturday Night Live” on Jan. 16, with musical guest Chris Stapleton.
