Action-movie hero, sitcom star, syndicated game show host, advertising pitchman, former NFL player and best-selling author all describe the man that is Terry Crews. Over the past few years, Crews has been one of those actors whom fans see almost everywhere. As the overworked dad on “Everybody Hates Chris,” a tough guy in the feature franchise “The Expendables,” the loveable goofball in “White Chicks,” “Will McAvoy’s” bodyguard in “The Newsroom,” the pec-popping Old Spice pitchman and randy congressman “Herbert Love” in “Arrested Development,”
Crews has proven that he’s adept at both drama and comedy. He currently stars as “Sgt. Terry Jeffords” on FOX’s Golden Globe Award-winning and SAG Award-nominated comedy series BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, and he is also the newest host of the popular syndicated game show “Who Wants to be a Millionaire.” Audiences could also catch Crews on the big screen last year, with roles in Tyler Perry’s “The Single Mom’s Club”; “Draft Day,” with Kevin Costner; and “Blended,” with Adam Sandler. Not one to limit himself, Crews also added author to his resume last year with the release of his first book, “Manhood.”
WORLD’S FUNNIEST FAILS is produced by dick clark productions (dcp) and Jukin Media.
