Adjust Comment Print

This weekend's edition of "Saturday Night Live" represents the last original episode of April.

Donald Glover is going to be pulling double duty on Saturday Night Live. He will also serve as musical guest under his stage name Childish Gambino. The list, made up of primarily pop stars, includes Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Drake, Blake Shelton and Ariana Grande.

Glover will play the famed smuggler Lando Calrissian in "Solo: A Star Wars Story", which will reveal how the future head of Cloud City first met Han Solo.

This marks Glover's return to NBC after previously serving as a writer and guest star on the network's hit comedy "30 Rock" as well as starring in the cult hit sitcom "Community".

Glover holds a Golden Globe and an Emmy for his leading role on FX's Atlanta, which he also created.

Glover has also dabbled in stand-up comedy and most recently won a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance for the Childish Gambino song, "Redbone". Before that, he was a part of the sketch comedy group Derrick Comedy, so he's no stranger to the work he'll be doing on SNL.
