Bio:

Donald McKinley Glover was born at the Edwards Air Force Base, California, and was raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia. His mother, Beverly (Smith), ran a daycare center, and his father, Donald Glover, was a postal worker. He is, despite rumors, not related to actor Danny Glover. Donald graduated from New York University with a degree in Dramatic Writing in 2006.

Glover worked as a writer for the NBC comedy 30 Rock (2006) which he also got a Writers Guild of America Award nomination for in 2009. He is best known for his role as Troy on the comedy series Community (2009) in which he plays an athlete in a rather odd study group, opposite Chevy Chase and Joel McHale.

Glover auditioned to play President Obama on Saturday Night Live in 2008, though he didn't get the role. His stand-up special aired on Comedy Central in March 2010.
