Today we celebrate the birthday of Adam Driver, an actor who plays whiny intergalactic bad boy Kylo Ren.
Ren, also known as Ben Solo, comes from a great lineage. His parents are the heroes Leia Organa and Han Solo. He is also a believer in letting the past die. Going by the movies that have already been released, I assume that means going after everyone who was in the Original Trilogy. It’s the same tactic that had once been pursued by WWE’s “Legend Killer” Randy Orton. Watch your back, C3P0.
Ren is also fond of wearing high-waisted pants, as was the fashion at the time.
Ren and fellow force user Rey had a pretty sweet fight in the last movie, where they took down a bunch of people in red outfits in the middle of the
Emperor’s Snoke’s throne room. But their growing … we’ll call it “friendship” … was interrupted when they couldn’t agree on whether they should be good guys or bad guys. Kylo has a pretty good thing going on with his black leather jacket and pants combo. He’s not trading that in for tan, ratty Jedi potato sacks.
What is Kylo’s role in The Last Skywalker? Will he have a redemption arc and join the good guys? Is he the titular Last Skywalker? Or will he find out that his dad was really Admiral Piett?
Find out this December!
Or watch Cats. Whatever.
