Donald Glover would need to think about Willy Wonka role

Donald Glover would need to "think about it on some level" if he were to be offered the role of Willy Wonka in the new adaptation of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'.

The 34-year-old actor was thought to be one of the contenders to portray the fictional character in the forthcoming prequel of the Roald Dahl classic novel, but he has admitted no one has approached him about the job and he doesn't know if he'd even accept if they did because there have been "a lot" of Willy Wonkas in the past.

Speaking to 'Entertainment Tonight', he said: "There's been a lot of Willy Wonkas, so I would have to think about it on some level. It's cool that people are thinking about me."
