You may know him from Girls or This Is Where I Leave You...

But the role he is best known for is Kylo Ren.

However, he wasn't always an actor...

He decided to pursue a career in the world of acting.

And then eventually fell into the film industry.

But because of his background in stage plays, he has a strange habit...
via: Getty ImagesHe hates watching himself in movies. It's understandable because he's used to just performing and not having it broadcasted in theaters.
He went as far as avoiding watching the Star Wars films he was in.

However, everyone else enjoyed his performance as Kylo Ren.Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker saw the complexities in his character as he battled his inner demons to realize the goodness within such a dark past.
Everyone admired his depiction of the character.Typically, he always found himself playing socially awkward characters so it takes a skilled actor to make such a drastic switch to portray an evil leader. This role helped him gain a loyal fanbase.
So when we saw him on SNL in 2016, we were excited.

And four years later, the same reaction stands.

Let me set the scene.
via: Getty ImagesYou've heard of the reality TV show, Undercover Boss, right? It's pretty self-explanatory. A boss goes undercover, posing as a new employee or something along those lines in order to see how the regular employees function on a daily basis.
But imagine that for a dark lord and his Storm Troopers...
via: Getty ImagesAdam Driver reprised his role as the evil version of Kylo Ren in order to understand how things were going at Starkiller Base. But he isn't the greatest boss we've ever seen... and depending on how bad yours is, he probably isn't the worst.
The skit starts off like this:
via: Getty ImagesDeep in character, Ren talks about his personal issues distracting him from his boss duties: “I’ll say it, I haven’t been the best boss lately - I’ve been distracted by some personal drama."
Then the voiceover explains in more detail:
via: Getty Images“Days after appearing on our show, Kylo killed his dad, cut his mentor in half, fired upon his mother’s spacecraft and is now obsessed with finding a young Jedi named Rey." An animation recaps the events from two of the Star Wars films.
So he decides to go undercover as a new intern, to see what his squad really get up to...
via: Getty ImagesLet's just say things didn't end well. Ren ends the skit by rounding up his time at the base: "I made four new friends and only killed one of them... I’d say that’s a pretty good start."
Thank God he isn't my boss...
