BIOGRAPHY OF DONALD GLOVER
Donald Glover, known at the registry office as Donald McKinley Glover Jr., is born in Kern County, California – specifically in Edwards Air Force Base – the September 25, 1983, but he grew up in Stone Mountain in Georgia. After graduating from the DeKalb School of the Arts, he enrolled at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he earned a BA in Dramatic Writing in 2006. In the same year the television producer David Miner and the creator of the series 30 Rocks (2006), Tina Fey, after having read the scripts that Glover had sent for The Simpsons, they contact him to propose that he become one of the writers of the sitcom. This employment will last until 2009, the year in which he is awarded a Writers Guild of America, and in the three years that Glover spends at 30 Rocks he also has the opportunity to act in some cameos. Notoriety always comes in 2009, when she stars in the film Mystery Team as a protagonist and screenwriter and especially when he joins the cast of Community, where he will play until the fifth season, broadcast in 2013, in the role of Troy Barnes, one of the students of the weird study group set up by Joel McHale. With this role as a former quarterback turned nerd, in 2011 he won a nomination for the Satellite Awards for Best Supporting Actor in a Series.
In 2010 he was at the center of a viral web campaign, after a fan of his had proposed him as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) – role later went to Andrew Garfield – by launching the hashtag # donald4spiderman and finding even the same among its supporters Stan Lee. Taking a cue from this campaign, the cartoonist Brian Michael Bendis created an African-American version of Spider-Man, Miles Morales, which, placed in the context of the cartoon series Ultimate Spider-Man (2012), is voiced by Glover himself. His fate will bring him in the future again to confront the universe of the “Spider-web” hero with Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), cinecomic in which Glover is the supervillain Aaron Davis/ Ultimate Prowler of the Ultimate Universe, opponent of Tom Holland in the movie. Before that, however, his film career moves between small roles, such as those The Muppets (2011) and in The To Do List – The summer before college (2013). Follow the horror, turned out to be a flop, The Lazarus Effect (2015), where he is the first scientist to be wiped out by a possessed woman Olivia Wilde, and dramatic comedy Magic Mike XXL (2015), in which, in addition to acting, he sings a cover of “Marry You” by Bruno Mars, also included in the film’s soundtrack. In the same year he was assigned a more prominent role, that of scientist Rich Purnell than in Survivor – The Martian (2015) manages to find the solution to bring back the character of Matt Damon, stuck on Mars, on Earth.
His television commitments see him involved in sporadic appearances, including two episodes of the series Girls (2013) are the highest point. At least until 2016, when Glover is the creator, director, screenwriter, producer and main performer of the TV series Atlanta, whose character tries to revive the fortunes of his family by moving into the Atlanta rap scene. The series has received critical acclaim and garnered a slew of accolades, including two Golden Globes for Best Series and Best Actor in a Series at Glover, which also won two Emmys as an actor and director, making it the first African American to win in the latter category. After voicing the Jedi Mace Windu in the special episode Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III (2010) of the homonymous series of sketches in stop motion, Glover really finds himself in the cast of Star Wars with the spin-off Solo: A Star Wars Story, directed by Ron Howard, where he plays a young man Lando Calrissian, which in the original trilogy had the face Billy Dee Williams.
Hand in hand with his film career, the actor has a well underway as a rapper under the stage name of Childish Gambino, under which he has released several albums, meeting a worldwide success especially with the latest works. In particular, the single “This Is America” (2018), a denunciation of the violence that has been carried out for years against African Americans and the danger of homologation, and his ironic video clip have in a short time reached a record of views on Youtube, inaugurating the This Is America Tour. In the cinema he also contributed to the creation of the soundtrack of Creed – Born to fight (2015) with the song “Waiting For My Moment”, made with Jhéne Aiko, Vince Staples and Ludwig Göransson.
