Donald Glover returns to the small screen for “30 Rock,” the NBC show that gave him his start as a writer pre-“Community.”

According to TVLine, the actor otherwise known as musician Childish Gambino, will play a young Tracy Morgan, named Tracy Jordan, the throwback character Glover wrote during the show’s first season.

While this is the first time the sitcom star will play a key role on “30 Rock,” he has apperared in a series of cameos as well as the extended version of Morgan’s Season 1 jingle, “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah.”

“Donald does an excellent Tracy Morgan-slash-Jordan impression,” executive producer Robert Carlock told TVLine. The live episode will premiere April 26.
