Last night's Saturday Night Live episode featured guest star Adam Driver. Coming off the success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Driver plays Dr. Rockhard in one sketch, a porn star mistaken for a real doctor and there are double entendres a plenty. He had a great time soaring through the sky as Aladdin, while Jasmine had a little less fun in her time on the magic carpet. Along with SNL cast member Vanessa Bayer, Driver poked fun at the recent Golden Globes and those stars who tell their kids to go to bed on TV. Whether Driver was playing Aladdin, a Golden Globe winner, or the host of a cat TV show, one thing was consistent, the lucky ladies of SNL got some kisses in on the Girls star.

The highlight sketch of the night was "Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base", where Driver's character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens goes undercover and tries to chum around with his fellow employees. Watch how Kylo Ren fails to keep his identity under wraps and fit in with the Stormtroopers of the First Order.

This sketch wasn't the only reference to The Force Awakens of the night. Driver's character name in the "America's Funniest Cat" sketch was Finn Raynal-Beads, referring to his Star Wars co-stars' character names.

Adam Driver is currently filming as Kylo Ren in Star Wars: Episode VIII and is back with the cast of Girls as Adam Sackler for season 5, premiering February 21 on HBO. Driver is also set to star in three films released this year. Co-starring with Andrew Garfield and Star Wars alum Liam Neeson, Driver will play a Jesuit priest in Martin Scorsese's Silence. Opening in theaters on March 18 is  Midnight Special, a sci-fi thriller from Jeff Nichols starring Driver, Kirsten Dunst, Joel Edgerton, and Michael Shannon. Driver will also star in Paterson, a story about a bus driver and poet living in Paterson, New Jersey.
