“I don’t like to put a label on things, but I feel honored,” said Donald Glover, the “Atlanta” actor-creator and Grammy winner featured as this month’s cover star.
“Oh my God, it’s the first time I’ve ever been called a maverick in any context — and then a ‘Maverick of Hollywood’ — by Esquire. That’s a pretty good first maverick,” said Kumail Nanjiani, star and co-writer of “The Big Sick,” adding that the year has been satisfying and wonderful, but also overwhelming. “I don’t know where we go from here.”
