JJ Abrams, Daisy Ridley and Sam Boyega tweak at some fun with the SNL cast impersonating various celebrities giving screen tests with real life appearances from Emma Stone, Jon Hamm and Michael Buble.
As the release of the seventh episode of Star Wars draws closer, the franchise is finding new ways to endorse the movie. Director JJ Abrams and main actors Daisy Ridley and Sam Boyega joined the SNL team for a quirky sketch. As JJ Abrams introduced it, they had conducted a series of screen tests to cast for the new movie. The screen tests according to Abrams were conducted sometime in the past.

Both Ridley and Boyega also participated in the sketch which featured the SNL cast as various actors. The cast dressed up as Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara who was excited to go to space and talked very loudly causing Ridley to step back a little.
According to fake Sofia, she loved the little, yellow minions. Next was pro basketball player Shaquille O'Neal dressed as Chewbacca doing a squint eye. Actor Javier Bardem, singer who had his own idea of how his saber worked.
Singer John Mayer doing a chemistry testing with Ridley and breaking into song. Country singer Wynonna Judd supporting an exaggerated hair style. Chris Tucker (reprising his "Fifth Element" role) in a leopard onesie.
Pro soccer player and world’s sexiest man David Beckham bending a BB-8 just as you'd expect he would, actor Danny DeVito rolling into a ball to audition for BB-8 and George Lucas who fails to use a Jedi Mind Trick to get a Coke Zero. He was very disappointed when he didn’t get one.
In between were the real celebrities Emma Stone. Dressed as Rey, she says that she knows the Star Wars universe is very diverse, and she didn't know if they saw the movie 'Aloha,' but she can play a very convincing part-Asian woman.
Sam Boyega finds it funny that there is going to be a ‘black Storm Trooper’. He got the part by the looks of it. Ridley and the real-life crooner Michael Bublé audition together to test any love chemistry between them. He even sings his own "Star Wars" theme song (to the tune of "Makin' Whoopee") complete with the lyrics "Another season, another reason, for makin' Wookiee.

The best part of the sketch was however actor Jon Hamm dressed as Han Solo. "I kind of wrote some of my own stuff," Hamm says in the sketch. "You have the first line, it's 'What's up, Hamm Solo?' and I'm like 'How's it goin', guys?'"
