Donald Glover who has been kicking butt in TV, Film, and music for years will now go to a place far far away, the Star Wars Universe where he is set to become a younger Lando Calrissian in the planned Han Solo spinoff film. Glover has all the charisma to play the smooth-talking Cloud City boss who movie fans first got introduced to in ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ originally played by Billy D. Williams. Glover joins Alden Ehrenreich who will play a younger version of Han Solo. Phil Lord and Chris Miller who directed the successful ‘LEGO Movie’ and a planned animated Spider-Man film, will handle this Han Solo cinematic adventure which is scheduled for release in May 2018.
Glover is currently starring in the FX series ‘Atlanta’ , had a supporting role in ‘The Martian’, made waves with NBC’s ‘Community’ and broke out with online comedy group Derrick Comedy. When he isn’t to busy in front of a camera, he’s one of the most acclaimed rappers under his under formerly performing name Childish Gambino producing critically-praised albums and hitting stages all over the world including Chicago’s Lollapalooza. While promoting the film ‘The Lazarus Effect’ late last year, Glover stated he felt he would no longer produce music as Childish Gambino.
And to make all of you Netflix fans to freak out, here is a remix of Glover rapping his hit ‘Bonfire’ over the synth-tastic theme song to ‘Stranger Things’. Note there is some very naughty NSFW language in this track.
