Perhaps, without anyone noticing, Donald Glover has become a power player on his own terms on multiple fronts in Hollywood.
Think about him going from being one of the principal cast members on the beloved TV series Community to also being a stand-up comedian to dropping of all of that to start a very good run as rapper/singer Childish Gambino.
Already, that’s a hell of career.
Now, add being the key creative and star on Atlanta, one of the most critically acclaimed series of 2016 in just its first season, and scoring an overall deal at FX moving forward. Glover’s track record is now among the most impressive in entertainment. Season 2 of Atlanta can’t even debut until sometime next year because of his busy production schedule.
It would be hard to imagine Glover not getting to do whatever he wants at this point.
