Man Crush Monday: Donald Glover

After the big win at this month’s Golden Globe Awards it’s likely we’ll be seeing a lot more of the Atlanta star and our Man Crush Monday, Donald Glover. Rap fans will be more familiar with his stage name Childish Gambino, through which he released his third (and most critically acclaimed album) Awaken, My Love! It’s been a super year for the hard-working star which culminated in a double win at the Golden Globes recently (Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy TV Series win and Best Musical or Comedy TV Series).  If you’re not a music fan and he looks familiar it’s likely you spotted him in Lena Dunham’s Girls as Sandy, a brief love-interest in season 2.  Word of advice – stock up on Atlanta re-runs as the hit series won’t be back on our screens until 2018 as Glover will be busy filming for his role as Lando Calrissian in the forthcoming Hans Solo prequel movie – you have been warned…



Least likely to…have a role model. He explains, “You just get disappointed . . . everybody’s just regular people…”



Impress him with…the adult cartoon, American Dad.  He says, “I’m probably going to get in trouble for this but American Dad is one of my favourite shows. It gets very dark in places but the jokes are there…”


Mention…30 Rock. The multi-talented artiste worked as a writer for the NBC comedy. He even earned himself a prestigious Writers Guild of America Award nomination back in 2009.


And another thing…as well as being the main character in Atlanta, Glover is also credited as the creator and writer of the hit show…
