'Atlanta' Character Teddy Perkins Appears at the 2018 Emmy Awards

September 18, 2018

A photo showing Donald Glover standing with Teddy Perkins is causing confusion. If Glover didn't dress up as the "Atlanta" character...who did??


Donald Glover went above and beyond for his Emmys look, creeping out "Atlanta" fans and non-viewers alike when he appeared in the front row as the character Teddy Perkins. 

Perkins was in an episode of the show's second season – an eerie man who meets Lakeith Stanfield’s character Darius. Glover plays him with a wig and a very unsettling mask.

When Bill Hader won the award for best actor in a comedy series, a category that included Glover, he hugged the "Atlanta" star before going onstage. 

Check out the freaked out reactions from Emmy viewers. 

While Glover didn't come away from the show with any awards – "Atlanta" was sadly shut out – he made quite the impression anyway.
