Back in the ’90s, Saturday Night Live made a reel of fake Star Wars auditions featuring the likes of Christopher Walken, Jack Lemmon, Burt Reynolds, Barbra Streisand, and other celebrities (played by Kevin Spacey and SNL cast members) badly auditioning for the film. The updated version of this sketch, with the backdrop of The Force Awakens, works much the same way—with a few surprises.
This time you have a mix of SNL cast members portraying the likes of Sofia Vergara, Shaquille O’Neal, and George Lucas while Jon Hamm, Emma Stone, and Michael Bublé play themselves. There are even cameos from The Force Awakens stars John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. Boyega’s just as surprised with the script as we were.
And we assume that David Beckham is now barred from attending any future Star Wars premieres after his audition.
