Donald Glover continues his reign as Hollywood's hottest hire, as it appears he will soon become the King of the Jungle, Simba, in Disney's latest live-action adaptation.
Director Jon Favreau, who successfully brought "The Jungle Book" to life with voice actors such as Bill Murray, Idris Elba, and Scarlett Johansson, has moved onto his next big Disney project, "The Lion King." And it looks like he has found his lead Simba.
Tweeting from his personal account, Favreau released an image of Glover with the caption "I just can't wait to be king. #Simba." While we can't be sure if this means Glover will be voicing the character or participating in a motion capture type performance, we do know this. Donald Glover is so hot right now.
