Donald Glover Will Host & Perform On May 5 "Saturday Night Live"

Donald Glover

Saturday Night Live announced Sunday morning that renaissance man Donald Glover will be hosting the show on May 5 with musical guest Childish Gambino, a.k.a. the rapper alter ego of Donald Glover.

Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino can not be put into a box.

Some hope he might bring in Deadpool 2 star Ryan Reynolds for a choice cameo that might make light of the matter.

And, of course, the thing everyone seems to be looking forward to is the moment when he, as host, introduces himself as the musical guest.

This marks Glover's first appearance on the show in either capacity, but the comedian is a longtime NBC stalwart who wrote for 30 Rock and starred on Community.

The talented artist now has a lot in store, including a leading role in the upcoming Star Wars spinoff Solo. 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. His most recent album as Childish Gambino arrived in 2016 with the critically acclaimed Awaken, My Love! LP.
