A self-professed "nerd" whose love for both hip-hop and "The Simpsons" (Fox, 1999- ) influenced his stellar career, Donald Glover was an actor, comedian, writer and musician whose multi-faceted career included the cult comedy troupe Derrick Comedy, writing for "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006-13), starring in NBC's "Community" (2009-15; Yahoo!, 2015) and releasing a wealth of rap tracks that minted him as a rising star in the indie music community. Glover's work blended a childlike fascination for pop culture with introspective ruminations on adolescent alienation and loneliness, which found considerable favor with both critics and comedy and music fans alike. The fact that he was devastatingly funny certainly helped his career ascension, but it was his relentless pursuit of his ambitions in all of his fields of interest that minted Glover as a unique and prolific entertainment figure. After momentarily leaving acting behind to focus on his music career under the name Childish Gambino, Glover returned strong by creating and starring in the offbeat comedy-drama "Atlanta" (FX 2016- ) for which he won both Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series following its first season, as well as appearing in the superhero blockbuster "Spider-Man: Homecoming" (2017), and being cast as the young Lando Calrissian in the standalone "Star Wars" film about Han Solo's early exploits, "Solo," released in 2018. 2018 also saw a number of additional Emmy nominations and other award recognition for "Atlanta," and Glover also made headlines as Childish Gambino with the release of the scorching, incisive song "This Is America" and its accompanying music video.
