The many facets of Glover cannot really be understated. For those who haven’t been paying attention, he’s had a successful music career under the name Childish Gambino. He was a writer for the widely popular TV series “30 Rock” in its early seasons and is also a talented actor and comedian who starred on the fan favorite series “Community.”

Glover’s latest venture, the FX series “Atlanta,” aired its third episode last night. Glover created the series and also plays Earn, cousin and manger to aspiring rapper Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry). You can catch all new episodes of the show every Tuesday on FX at 10pm.
