Star Wars Auditions

Nov. 21, 2015

Yes, the formula has been done before — Star Wars screen tests.

But it’s still funny, especially when big names are connected.

Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams was enlisted to introduce the segment, which shows a mix of actual Force Awakens stars — Daisy Ridley and John Boyega — and celebrity impersonations.

Ridley is seen reading alongside Sofia Vergara (Cecily Strong).

“I love Meenions, the little yellow guys,” Vergara says. “They are so funny. You can’t understand nothing they say.”

Boyega makes a solo appearance, paging through the script.

“A black Stormtrooper,” he says, laughing. “Yeah, right … a black Stormtrooper!”

Actress Emma Stone appears as herself, reading for Rey.

“I know the Star Wars universe is very diverse,” Stone says. “And I don’t know if you saw the movie Aloha, but I can play a very convincing part Asian woman.”

George Lucas (Bobby Moynihan) orders a staffer to get him a Coke Zero.

“I find your lack of Coke Zeros disturbing,” Lucas says.

Michael Buble serenades Ridley with “Makin’ Whoopie.”

Shaquille O’Neal, Javier Bardem, Danny Devito, John Mayer, Dame Maggie Smith, Wynona Judd and Chris Tucker are also spoofed, while David Beckham (Taran Killam) is seen kicking BB-8 like a soccer ball.
