Adam Driver parodied his famous Star Wars character, Kylo Ren, in a skit while hosting Saturday Night Live.

The 32-year-old actor, who plays villainous Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and is also known for his role as Adam in HBO's Girls, hosted SNL for the first time and was joined by musical guest and country singer Chris Stapleton.

Driver reprised his role as Kylo Ren in this Undercover Boss parody.

In another skit, Driver and Vanessa Bayer portray a married couple who win Golden Globes, who embarrass their kids watching at home by giving them a shout-out during their acceptance speech and then proceed to party a little too much at the after party.

Finally, Driver shocks fans with a pretty good impression of Aladdin by performing A Whole New World with Cecily Strong ... with a twist.

Driver also took a turn as the host of America's Funniest Cats, integrating sound effects and the kind of commentary reminiscent of any of America’s Funniest shows. Things get a little cooky when two French women (played by Cecily Strong and Kate McKinnon) who join him on the show to demonstrate how they do it back in their home country.

What did you think of Adam Driver's first appearance on SNL?
