It’s time for you to ask yourself a serious question: What do you really know about Donald Glover? That he captured your heart as an arrogant-jock-turned-goofy-nerd in “Community?” That he’s a hilariously witty stand-up comedian? Or maybe you’re more into his Grammy-nominated, Woodie Award-winning music as Childish Gambino?
All of that is true, but you need to put that info aside for a sec, because the following photo will change the way you see Glover forever.
Do you need a moment to collect yourself? Go ahead, we’ll wait.
You good? OK, let’s continue.
The above poster was released Wednesday (April 29), teasing the 31-year-old’s role in this summer’s highly anticipated “Magic Mike” sequel, “Magic Mike XXL.” Besides making our jaws drop with his slick black suit (no undershirt — #bless), Glover also holds a mic in the poster, which hints he may be doing a little more than dancing in the movie.
In an interview with The Daily Beast earlier this year, Glover revealed a little about his role, saying his lap dance game had “gotten way better.” “It’s all confidence,” he said. “You just need to go for it…I’m never going to be able to pull off Channing Tatum’s dance moves, because he’s a genius with that, but I can do me pretty OK.”
No further details about Glover’s role have been released, but for now we’ll just enjoy the view.
“Magic Mike XXL” ponies its way into theaters July 1.
