Even though Atlanta won't be making its way back on television until 2018, Donald Glover is keeping himself busy with other projects. After appearing in Spider-Man: Homecoming earlier this month, Glover has already found himself fully entrenched in his role as Lando Calrissian for the forthcoming Han Solo movie. 

On Wednesday (July 19), fans were able to get glimpses of Glover in action as Calrissian, through a series of Instagram photos. Captured by director Ron Howard, Glover is spotted in character mid-way through a scene. Through the monitor, the "Redbone" star is found sporting Calrissian's signature mustache. In the '80s, actor Billy Dee Williams served as the original Lando Calrissian in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

On the music front, Glover's alter-ego, Childish Gambino continues to thrive. Recently, his slow-burning single "Redbone" officially went double-platinum. The song continues to soar on the Billboard Hot 100, as it now sits comfortably at the No. 14 spot. 

Check out photos of Glover as Lando below, courtesy of Howard. Han Solo is expected to be released May 25, 2018.
