Ever since Lena Dunham hyped up Donald Glover’s appearance on “Girls,” we’ve been dying to see what he could possibly be up to come season two. Well, we won’t have to wait much longer. In honor of his January 13 appearance on the buzzy HBO series’ season premiere, we decided to name this Childish Gambino this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Donald, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: This 29-year-old was born in California, but grew up in Georgia. Proving to be a smarty-pants at a young age, he headed off to New York University where he studied and Tisch School of the Arts and later nabbed up a degree in dramatic writing. While there, he was a member of the Derrick Comedy sketch comedy collective.
Where you might have already seen him: Among his list of accomplishments is a VMA nomination for his work as his MC alternate persona Childish Gambino, a stint as a writer on “30 Rock,” and of course, his starring role on NBC’s cult-loved sitcom “Community.”
Why you should take notice of him now: Not only can you check him out on “Community,” you can also see what he’ll be up to come Sunday when he chills with Lena Dunham and her “Girls.” We don’t want to spoil anything, but things are going to get sexy…and then probably awkward.
Additionally, he’s set to star in “The To Do List,” about a teen’s journey to womanhood, alongside other funny folks like Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Audrey Plaza and “Happy Endings” star Adam Pally.
Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Donald by gawking at the photo above!
