While being interviewed by “Smartness” hosts, Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett, Driver was asked about the future of the “Star Wars” franchise. He replied, “They’re doing stuff, but not with me. I’m not doing it anymore.” Pressed on if he was done because the characters was done, he simply replied, “Yeah.”

He was also asked about his history with “Star Wars,” and if he’d grown up a fan of the franchise, to which he shared, “I was a fan. My dad was more of a ‘Star Trek’ fan than a ‘Star Wars’ fan, but I did have a couple ‘Star Wars’ toys that we got at a garage sale, but I was a fan of the movies.”

Driver later discussed getting offered the role of Kylo Ren, a.k.a Ben Solo, revealed that he hesitated agreed to the part because he “didn’t want to be bad in it.” At the time, there was no script, however he signed onto the project after “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” director, JJ Abrams, walked him through the whole project.
