Playing across all shows will be the living definition of a slashie, Childish Gambino/Donald Glover - a rapper/actor/writer/superstar.

He then effortlessly transitioned into a beloved character actor, playing Troy Barnes on Community.

Beneath the slick, talented veneer of Donald Glover though, lives Childish Gambino.
