Donald Glover Talks Success Of Atlanta And New Star Wars Role On Ellen

Donald Glover stopped by Ellen to discuss the tremendous success of his FX show, Atlanta, and celebrate the news of his new role as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Star Wars film.

After only one episode Atlanta was declared a hit earning a 90 Metacritic score and earning the largest audience viewership for a comedy debut on FX. Glover shares that “he just wanted to make Twin Peaks with rappers.” The show definitely deserves the attention its garnered and has been up for a second season.
