We’ve all seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens by now, right? Considering the box office records its shattering, my calculations say every human alive has seen it by now, twice. (Full Disclosure: math has never been my strong suit.)
Just in case you haven’t, this post will be as spoiler-free as TK’s review. And if you have, geek out with us in comments over here. But it’s no spoiler to say Adam Driver is driving us wild—for worse and better—as The First Order’s Kylo Ren.

And apparently we’re not alone, as Saturday Night Live has just announced the Girls star turned Star Wars baddie will be hosting January 16th. We can’t wait, so let’s start speculating wildly about the ep.
Perhaps past host Lena Dunham will cameo in his opening monologue. Do you think John Boyega and Daisy Ridley will pop back by for more Star Wars sketches? Or maybe 2016 Pajiba 10 contender Oscar Isaac can be the musical guest? Maybe he, Driver and frequent SNL guest Justin Timberlake could do a Star Wars/Inside Llewyn Davis mash-up that would bring this song turned meme full circle?
It’s too much to take in!
H/T The Wrap
Kristy Puchko would bet Kylo is way into Dashboard Confessional.
