MST3K’s Tom Servo and Crow Audition for The Force AwakensDecember 7th, 2015
There are very few robots as cool as R2-D2 and C-3PO, but MST3K’s Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot come close. So it’s no wonder that they both auditioned for roles in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Here, we see Tom Servo auditioning for Kylo Ren and Crow for BB-8. Spoiler Alert: It doesn’t go very well.
Spoiler Alert #2: You’ll find out at the end that this is all an elaborate ruse to draw your attention to the MST3K Kickstarter, which will be running until Dec. 12. So sadly there was never a chance these bots would appear in J.J. Abrams’ movie. I’m heartbroken. Right now, the new season of MST3K has reached $3.8 million of its initial $2 million goal. If they earn $5.5 million, they will produce more episodes.
