‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Featured On Saturday Night Live

Season 41 of Saturday Night Live marched on last night with host Matthew McConaughey and musical guest Adele. One of the topics that they hit on was Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Last night they brought back a sketch that they had been done in previous seasons entitled Star Wars Screen Tests.

Here’s an example of the Sketch back when Kevin Spacey hosted.

Here’s another example from the same sketch

Last night’s sketch featured – J.J. Abrams, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley ,John Hamm, Emma Stone, Jay Pharoah, Aidy Bryant, Kate Mckinnon, Leslie Jones, Taran Killam, Micheal Buble, Cecily Strong, and Bobby Moynihan playing both Danny Devito and George Lucas. Here’s the sketch from last night.

I happen to think that John Hamm as “Hamm Solo” may have been the funniest part of the sketch. What do you guys think?
