It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from actor/rapper Donald Glover (Childish Gambino). The fact that he’s ghosted on social media and has been quiet on the music front hasn’t helped matters, but sporadic appearances in movies like The Lazarus Effect from earlier this year prove that he’s still keeping some kind of busy.
Glover’s latest role as a techie in Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi flick The Martian gives off vibes from his role as Troy on Community. In the above clip, Rich Purnell (Glover) explains how a supply ship would get from Earth to Mars to assist stranded astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) – and back again. Purnell and Vincent Kapoor (Chewitel Ejiofor) are having fun, but Annie Montrose (Kristin Wiig) Head of NASA Teddy Sanders (Jeff Daniels) is having none of it. The Martian is in theaters October 2.
