These days, Donald Glover seems to be everywhere. You know him as high-school-quarterback-prom-king Troy Barnes, who actually turned out to be a bit of a goofy nerd in Community. You might also recognize him for his witty comedy stand-up performances or perhaps as the Grammy-nominated musician under the alias of Childish Gambino.
Without a doubt, the 31-year-old is hot property in Hollywood right now, but I did not realize just HOW hot until the following image was released on April 29.
A new Magic Mike XXL poster has revealed that the actor will be bringing what appears to be a incredible physique to the big screen in the stripping extravaganza.
Oh hey, Donald Glover abs, welcome to the party indeed!
The teaser is definitely enough to make our salivating jaws drop, that's for sure. Just look at the revealing black suit, slick fedora and matching leather pants. And considering he has a mic in hand, perhaps this suggests we will see him doing more than simply shaking his Adonis-like hips around this summer.
I can't wait to get an eyeful on July 1 because the Magic Mike XXL trailer is just getting me too hot and flustered:
Not much more information has been released about the movie (hey, we don't even know his name yet!), but it seems that Glover has quite a few surprises in store for us. In an interview earlier this year, he said that his lap dancing techniques were definitely improving. He said:
"It’s all confidence [...] You just need to go for it…I’m never going to be able to pull off Channing Tatum’s dance moves, because he’s a genius with that, but I can do me pretty OK.”
I think Glover is going to do a fantastic job. Here's my five main reasons why he is perfect for such a sexy role:
1. He's got the moves
2. He's got the rockin' bod
3. He's got the vocals
4. He's not just a pretty face, he has emotional integrity too
5. He's got a smile that can break hearts
Now if that doesn't convince you, here's also why Donald Glover is such a BIG deal these days:
Without a question, Glover is one of the most talented individuals in the business. As already mentioned, he's a hugely talented comic, a rapper and a phenomenal actor.
In addition to this, not only has he given Spider-Man another identity in the animated series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warrior in which he voices Peter Parker's half-Hispanic, half-black counterpart, but recently, the talented actor has also been added to the cast of Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic The Martian.
Based on the novel of the same name by Andy Weir, the film stars Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars by his crew during a fierce storm, attempting to figure out how to survive the return home to Earth.
Glover is set to play a young NASA employee in the movie, alongside the impressive Hollywood heavyweights who are also orbiting the project. Apparently, Jessica Chastian, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels and Michael Anthony Peña are all involved, amongst others.
