Chris Gethard's fans matched up Star Wars characters with soccer stars

The Chris Gethard Show is coming to Fusion at the end of the month (May 28), but in the interim, Chris is making friends and influencing people around his new television home.

Tune into The Chris Gethard Show live stream Tuesday, May 26th at 10 p.m. ET.
