Jimmy Fallon and James Corden aren't the only late night hosts who can pull goofy stunts. Over in the UK, the Graham Norton Show played host to some stars of Star Wars: The Force Awakens... and David Beckham. During the interview, Beckham was cast as the dark side warrior, given Kylo Ren's hilted lightsaber to face off against John Boyega, who wields the Anakin Skywalker lightsaber in the movie.

"You have met your match," Boyega says. They touch lightsabers once, and Boyega backs down, reaching out a hand and saying, "I just wanted to meet you, mate!"

So, not exactly a battle for the ages or going to supplant the actual lightsaber fights Boyega has in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but a fun moment nonetheless.
