The “Community” actor Donald Glover will be filling in for actor Tracy Morgan on NBC’s “30 Rock” this month. 

Glover, aka as rapper Childish Gambino, will guest star on 30 Rock’s live episode as a younger version of Tracy Morgan’s eccentric character, Tracy Jordan.

“Donald does an excellent Tracy Morgan-slash-Jordan impression,” “30 Rock” Executive Producer Robert Carlock told TVLine.com.

Glover, who is now a regular on NBCs the “Community” wrote for “30 Rock” for three years before joining his current show. In fact, this also won’t be the first time he has stood in for Morgan. Apparently, he did the vocals on an extended version of the season one jingle, “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah.”

“I don’t think you can tell,” Carlock says. “It’s pretty remarkable. All the spoken stuff is Donald doing Tracy.”

This wouldn’t be the first time “30 Rock” switched actors during a live episode. During 2010, Julia Louis-Dreyfus stood in for Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon.

The live episode of “30 Rock” airs on Thursday, April 26 at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.
