SNL shows hilarious disaster of A-listers in Star Wars audition

Imagine what it would be like to take a look at the many actors who screen tested for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens revival. Director J.J. Abrams appeared on this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night live, hosted by Matthew McConaughey, to bring viewers some extremely rare, unseen outtakes.

In the hilarious sketch, we see a mix of real actors, like Emma Stone and Jon Hamm, give their interpretations of famous characters (the latter auditions for “Hamm Solo,” and notes that he’s written some of his own stuff) along with a stream of spot-on impressions from cast members. Cecily Strong is a dead vocal ringer for bombshell Sofia Vergara, seemingly thinking she’s auditioning for the Minions movie. Jay Pharoah does his interpretation of Shaquille O’Neal as Chewbacca, and Taran Killam as a too-sexy David Beckham who proceeds to “bend it” and kick the soccer ball-esque BB-8 across the room.

To make it even more, er, believable, actors from the real film were there to screen test with them, including Daisy Ridley (who plays Rey in the film) and John Boyega (the Storm Trooper Finn). Boyega laughs it up as he peers at the script that suggests there being a black Storm Trooper.

Keep an eye out for Bobby Moynihan’s hilarious take on George Lucas, who’s lurking in the background, upset that no one can find him a Coke Zero. He also plays Danny DeVito auditioning for the part of BB-8. Newest cast member Leslie Jones ends the segment with her typical angry scream when she comes in decked out as a Klingon to audition for Star Trek by accident. Er, wrong iconic film franchise, Leslie.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18. Along with Ridley and Boyega, it stars Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill (allegedly), and Adam Driver, among others.
