Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino has always had his hand in acting and writing ever since his days with Derrick Comedy and 30 Rock. It’s been announced that he’ll be appearing in a couple of films come 2015, and now, he’s reportedly added another major role to that list.
According to Deadline, Glover will both star and executive produce an FX comedy series pilot titled Atlanta, which is about “two cousins on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene whose opposing views on art versus commerce, success and race will make their quest anything but easy.” He’ll be playing “Earnest ‘Earn’ Marks,” a college dropout who pursues a rap career after his estranged cousin becomes a star.
The show has been in talks for over a year now, but there’s still no word as to when we’ll get a sneak peek. Stay tuned for more updates on Atlanta.
In other Gambino-related news, it appears that he’s gone through his entire Twitter account and wiped out everything, including changing his avatar and banner to black.
