Donald Glover On Being An "Easter Egg" In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
Donald Glover's race made him a controversial casting choice with fans when he decided to campaign for the coveted role of Peter Parker. However, both director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield have since expressed admiration for the star of Community, with the former recently letting slip the fact that they had included an easter egg featuring the actor somewhere in Peter Parker's bedroom.
Back when Sony Pictures were looking to cast their Peter Parker, Donald Glover was one of the names which came up through a campaign on Twitter. Despite not landing the role, there is an easter egg featuring the actor in the reboot and here's what he had to say about that.
Talking to MTV Splash Page, the actor said: "I was pretty aware of the Easter egg that Marc Webb put in there because he asked me—I guess when they were filming it—if it was ok to do it. I was like 'Sure.' For some reason, I didn't think they needed to ask my permission, but I guess they did. So there's some stuff in Spider-Man's bedroom that's reflective of his musical or television taste."
While he may know something about the easter egg, he wasn't willing to let slip any specifics. ""I don't know. I'm not allowed to talk about it. I had to sign some stuff, but I think it's pretty dope." He jokingly added, "He has all the '30 Rock' DVDs, and he has my name circled on all of them. It's like a 'Cape Fear' thing where he's doing pushups and stuff and it's kind of like he's out for me."
