Actor Donald Glover (better known in some circles by his hip-hop nom de guerre Childish Gambino) is no stranger to voice over work for Cartoon Network. A few months back he made an appearance alongside Tyler, The Creator, as a cohort of a team of rap meanies on the animated slacker comedy that’s ostensibly for kids, Regular Show.
Now Glover is lending his talents to another ‘toon with surprisingly adult appeal, Adventure Time. Starring alongside fellow guest Neil Patrick Harris, Glover will appear in the upcoming episode “Adventure Time with Fiona and Cake – Bad Little Boy” as vampire Marshall Lee. Not to take too deep a dive into it, but the Fiona and Cake episodes are notable for featuring gender-swapped versions of characters from the normal Adventure Time with Finn and Jake continuity.
Not totally nerded out yet? Then check out a clip from the upcoming episode, featuring Glover’s vampire character make rhymes about being “a villain/ every night I’m out killin”, after the jump.
