Adam Driver went to the dark side with his latest role, transforming into the evil Kylo Ren for Star Wars: The Force Awakens…but have his fans traveled with him?

"They're all very excited," he tells E! News' Zuri Hall. "Most of the people I talk to are very into the dark side. Probably all the clubs I go to," he jokes before adding, "That's not true I don't go to any clubs."

In all seriousness, though, Driver says his villainous character gets pretty shady in the new flick. "He's probably a 9 going for a 10, if Darth Vader is a 10," he explains. "He's a little pissed off."

Meanwhile, with several Emmy nominations for his role on Girls, we also couldn't help but ask if his co-stars from the HBO series are nerding out over this role.

"No. I don't know that they're very into Star Wars or that they know what's going on," Driver laughs. In fact, he reveals Lena Dunham has never even seen the films!

"I don't think Dunham has watched them yet. I think she's going to see this one, I think," he reveals. "But I think the deal is I have to watch Girls if she watches this so I'm trying to put her off as much as possible."

Yes, as Driver told us over a year ago, he still refuses to watch an episode of Girls, and he's not so sure he'll follow through on their deal.

"Haven't seen it," he says before recalling, "No, no, no that's not true. I saw the pilot episode, and then I was like, 'I can't do it.'"
