'SNL' pegs Donald Glover/Childish Gambino to headline upcoming episode

Donald Glover

According to a title card that aired during this weekend's "SNL", Donald "Childish Gambino" Glover will be the host and musical guest.

Not many artists have acted as both the musical guest and the host for Saturday Night Live.

Some hope he might bring in Deadpool 2 star Ryan Reynolds for a choice cameo that might make light of the matter. "Attention Donald Glover fans. you don't want to miss this one".

Around the time he landed his role on Community, Glover was also working as a writer on 30 Rock, a comedy series created by SNL legend Tina Fey. He now stars on his acclaimed FX show Atlanta, and he'll next be seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story as the scoundrel Lando Calrissian and in Disney's live-action Lion King as Simba.

Childish Gambino's most recent album was 2016's "Awaken, My Love!", which earned Grammy nominations in the categories of album of the year and urban contemporary album, and just last month he announced a tour, which would be kicking off in Atlanta in September.

Glover also joins a list of musicians who performed double duty on SNL.
