Stephen Glover says that Kevin Samuels’ role in recent “Atlanta” episode, was originally meant for Steve Harvey

Kevin Samuels’ “Atlanta” role was meant for Steve Harvey 

Over a week ago, Kevin Samuels appeared in a new episode of “Atlanta,” on FX, titled “Rich Wigga Poor Wigga.” This came exactly a week after he passed away, at 56, at his apartment in Atlanta. At the time, Samuels died of cardiac arrest, as he was reportedly complaining about chest pain, to a 32-year-old woman that he was supposedly with, in his final moments.

In this Atlanta episode, Samuels played the role of philanthropist and businessman, Robert Shea Lee. Lee spoke to high school seniors, and revealed that he’d cover their college tuition, only if they’re a Black student.

Stephen Glover, who is Donald Glover’s brother and a producer of Atlanta, recently spoke with Complex about this interesting Atlanta episode. However, Glover revealed that this role was meant to be for Steve Harvey, but it never happened.

“I’m a Black man, so to me, Kevin Samuels isn’t that crazy,” Glover explained. “He was an old Black man. I think we’ve all met some version of Kevin Samuels before in our lives. We probably have a family member who’s Kevin Samuels.

People are getting lazier, so I understand this idea of us putting Kevin Samuels [in an episode] must mean that we hate women, but actually Kevin Samuels did a really good job on this. I think as far as the bigger question of us hating women, we definitely don’t.”

Atlanta season 3’s final episode aired on May 19. Season 4 is scheduled to arrive in the fall.
