Making Saturday Night Live’s “Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base”


Man, the [Kylo Ren costume provided by Lucasfilm] was really cool. The three things that really stood out to us were that, one, it’s a LOT of layers. Two, it’s very heavy — it’s a surprisingly heavy costume. One of the layers felt like one of those vests that you get at the dentist, like the lead smock they put on you when you get the x-ray [Laughs]. It’s just, you lift it out of the bag and you’re like, “Oh my goodness,” you know? And then we’ve got like five more layers to go!


StarWars.com: Now, did you have a hand in the design of the “Matt the Radar Technician” outfit?

Tom Spina: No, that was all SNL and all awesome! We were there for one cool moment though, when the costumer brought out a tray of glasses, and kind of just held them up to Adam and went, “Ok, which are the most Matt?” [Laughs] And he picked his choice from about a dozen awful, very bad glasses.
