Donald Glover Is the New Lando

Donald Glover Is the New Lando

Donald Glover is on top of his game these days. The Grammy-nominated artist (Childish Gambino), former writer for 30 Rock and creator (and star) of last year’s breakout show, Atlanta is about to become a sci-fi legend. Lucasfilm announced that Glover will portray a young Lando Calrissian in the yet-to-be-titled Han Solo Star Wars origin story. Of course, the show that propelled Glover as an actor was the cult-classic show Community. And that got us thinking maybe some of the other crew deserve a chance at a Lando-like moment. Here are our suggestions for other Community actors in big-budget origin stories :

Joel McHale

as the Grinch. WARNING: Once you see it, you can’t unsee it.

Gillian Jacobs
is basically Lucille Ball, right? She must be in an I Love Lucy reboot ASAP.

Danny Pudi
as Back to the Future’s Doc Brown. Because no one else could be so neurotically lovable.
