Glover did star in a "Star Wars" sketch, as expected, since he was promoting "Solo: A Star Wars Story."
But he also joined SNL's hilarious sketch spoofing Kanye West's extreme behavior -- and the extreme reactions to his behavior -- in "A Quiet Place" parody called "A Kanye Place":Kanye West, Chrissy Teigen, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson all reacted to their shoutouts:

Glover wasn't even part of the political cold open that featured cameos from half the planet.
Deadline called it "the Infinity War of cold opens" -- featuring Alec Baldwin (President Trump), Ben Stiller (Michael Cohen), Martin Short (Dr. Bornstein), Kate McKinnon (Rudy Giuliani), Aidy Bryant (Sarah Huckabee Sanders), Cecily Strong (Melania Trump), Leslie Jones (Omarosa), Beck Bennett (Mike Pence), Scarlett Johansson (Ivanka Trump), Jimmy Fallon (Jared Kushner), and porn star Stormy Daniels as herself:The cameos continued when it came time to introduce Childish Gambino as musical guest. Usually that's the host's job, but since Glover was pulling double duty, SNL broke out Zoe Kravitz and Daniel Kaluuya ("Get Out," "Black Panther") to introduce him. (They should make it a tradition for celebs to introduce the musical guests.)
Here are more sketches from the night, including Glover's Star Wars sketch as Lando Calrissian; a "Jurassic World" courtroom sketch; and Migos parody:
