Donald Glover

Donald Glover is one ridiculously talented nerd. He's not only an accomplished comedian and actor, as his sketch comedy group Derrik Comedy and his work on Community can attest, but he also wrote for 30 Rock, raps about ridiculously nerdy stuff under the name Childish Gambino, and probably performs brain surgeries on the side and packs houses with his stand up. In May 2010, Glover auditioned for the role of Peter Parker after his legion of fans sent an avalanche of tweets to the reboot's producers. Even Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee supported him for the role. Glover clearly never landed the part, but it just goes to show how loved he is by the entire geek community.
