Glover recently appeared in Solo: A Star Wars Story and is set to rule Pride Rock in the upcoming The Lion King movie which is a live action remake of the original Disney film. During his appearance on Talking with Chris Hardwick, a fan asked which role was more exciting for him between the two iconic gigs.
"That's a really, for me personally, Millenium Falcon," Glover said. "I mean, Pride Rock, that was awesome, too. It's really been fun and Jon Favreau is like the most fun director to work with. He's on Lion King. He's just been so much fun. I feel like, more and more, because my son really likes that movie. For him, it feels like a gift for him. Millenium Falcon, that's all me. I'm just in there. Hyper drive. Clicking buttons. That was literally just for me so I'd have to say that."
Glover has been on a roll lately, with his Atlanta series becoming a hit on FX, in addition to landing a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe where his debut came during Spider-Man: Homecoming. Most recently, his "This is America" music video under the artist name of Childish Gambino became a hit, as well.
AMC's Talking with Chris Hardwick, produced by Embassy Row, builds on the success of Talking Dead, the top rated talk show on television and a pioneer of the after show format. Each 60-minute episode features an in-depth conversation between Hardwick and a single guest or cast. While Talking Dead focuses exclusively on The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead, episodes of Talking with Chris Hardwick feature a wide breadth of guests and highlight Hardwick’s singularly irreverent and authentic take on today’s pop culture landscape.
Talking with Chris Hardwick will feature a slew of impressive guests in the coming weeks, airing in The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead's off-season, Sunday nights at 11 pm ET on AMC.
