Donald Glover May Take On Another Iconic Role And This One’s A Doozy!



Yea, he took on Billy Dee’s iconic, Lando Calrissian role — and killed it! He even landed the coveted role as the voice of Simba in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of The Lion King. But now Donald Glover is up for a challenge that no one saw coming.

The multi-hyphenate star is in the running to play Willy Wonka in a reboot of the revered classic. The original role, played by Gene Wilder, is honestly quite legendary, so to say those are big shoes to fill would be an understatement. But this Warner Bros. adaptation could blaze its own trail with Glover at the helm.

Unfortunately, according to the Collider, he’s not quite a shoo-in just yet. The Atlanta star is up against Ryan Gosling and Ezra Miller for the part. But, let’s be honest, Donald adds something those other guys can’t — a little quirk + a little color. Miller would feel too much like a Johnny Deep rehash from the darker-themed Charlie & The Chocolate Factory from WB’s 2005 remake. And Gosling is a bit too sexy (for lack of a better word), no shade, Donald.

It’s pretty obvious that Glover is the way to go, plus he would KILL the soundtrack! Who’s your top choice?
