Donald Glover Wakes Up Again And Again And Again In New "Atlanta" Trailer

Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino made an appearance on The Ellen Show to sit down and have a chat with host Ellen DeGeneres. The conversation touched on Glover’s role as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Star Wars film and how he has had an affinity to the character since childhood. His pops even bought him a Lando action figure at a young age. Glover also talked about how he’s feeling a bit of pressure to play the role well from his mother who is a big Billy Dee Williams fan. The conversation of course touched on Glover’s latest creation, the stellar show Atlanta, of which he said, “I just wanted to make Twin Peaks with rappers.”  The chat hits other subjects also, watch a clip from Donald Glover and Ellen DeGeneres’ conversation via YouTube below. New episodes of Atlanta play Tuesday nights on FX at 10PM although the show can be streamed via a variety of services such as iTunes and Youtube. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and watch it. And be on the lookout for that new Childish Gambino project.
