During the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted episode, NBC announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ Adam Driver will be the host of the Jan. 16 episode of SNL. No musical guest has been announced yet (so all Inside Llewyn Davis fans have hope that another rendition of “Please Mr. Kennedy” might be on the docket).

Driver plays Kylo Ren in the record-breaking latest entry in the Star Wars franchise, which will surely still have a presence at the box office come January, priming the sketch show for at least one (or seven) Star Wars-related bits. Driver’s appearance will also come ahead of the fifth season debut of Girls on HBO.
