Some of the best sketches in the history of Saturday Night Live have been their Star Wars auditions. And with a new Star Wars movie opening in less than a month, SNL whipped out a hilarious audition sketch for The Force Awakens.
Like the previous three Star Wars audition sketches this one is filled with cast members doing their best celebrity impressions. Bobby Moynihan pulls double-duty portraying a Coke Zero-obsessed George Lucas and Danny DeVito trying to win the role of B-88. Jay Pharaoh showed off two impressions as well: Shaq auditioning for Chewbacca and Chris Tucker as his character from The Fifth Element. Cecily Strong pulls off a convincing Sofia Vergara and Taran Killam makes BB-8 bend for David Beckham.
But it wasn't all celebrity impressions. The Force Awakens stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega got in on the act and so did Jon Hamm and Emma Stone. With the latter poking fun at being woefully miscast in Cameron Crowe's box office disaster Aloha.
Check it out in the video below.
