Donald Glover's Dream Role? To Play Michael Jackson...

Can you see it?

To director Ivan Reitman, who, as we noted last week, is said to be in talks with Michael Jackson's estate about the possibility of producing and financing a Michael Jackson biopic, if the project is a go, Donald Glover might be your guy when the question of who should star comes up :)

Meanwhile, his Childish Gambino Camp LP is in stores now!

I love Donald, but I can't see it.


I keep hearing talks about Johnny Depp being at the top of the director's list to play MJ. Is anyone else hearing this? Here's an article:


NO! An MJ biopic…this should definitely remain a rumor FOREVER!


Can't picture this. But if Donald Glover played MJ, it'd sink his acting career because I have no faith Glover has enough range to portray someone other than himself. So I am all for it. If he's laughed out of Hollywood, then I won't have to hear from the guy again.


There is nothing to this dude. And he is hot right now… I don't get it…


NO! Question: How could the Jackson family hire such a racist as Ivan Reitman?? I mean, he and his son don't hire blacks for their films? *eye roll*


Hell naw…
