Judging by new Saturday Night Live promos, Adam Driver evidently has something in common with his Star Wars: The Force Awakens character: They both have a tendency to get a bit melodramatic.

Driver’s making his hosting debut on SNL this weekend, which he expresses his insecurity about once Kate McKinnon mentions this is the first time they’ve filmed promos in a diner.

“I know why,” a suddenly somber Driver responds. “Because I’m the new guy. And they don’t trust the new guys with the promos in the studio, so they brought us here, to this godforsaken diner to laugh and joke and dance like everything’s okay. But everything’s not okay.”

Watch the promo above to see if Driver snaps out of it, and see the episode when it airs Saturday at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
