The relatively short list of other performers who have pulled double duty as host and guests includes Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Drake, Blake Shelton, and Ariana Grande.

In May, Glover will star in the sci-fi actioner Solo: A Star Wars Story, which tells the story of Han Solo meeting his future copilot Chewbacca and smuggler Lando Calrissian (played by Glover) years before joining the Rebellion.

Around the time he landed his role on Community, Glover was also working as a writer on 30 Rock, a comedy series created by SNL legend Tina Fey.
