Terry Crews, action-movie hero, sitcom star, children’s book illustrator, advertising pitchman, playable video game character, talent show host, high-end furniture designer, and human rights activist all describe the man that is Terry Crews. The unstoppable Crews stars on the NBC Golden Globe Award winning hit series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which premiere its 8th and final season on August 12th and he hosts NBC’s top-rated alternative series “America’s Got Talent,” which is in its 16th season on air now.
Crews’ no holds-barred approach to work has made him a force to be reckoned with as his career continues to evolve. The three-time People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive actor has starred as a series regular in three consecutive TV series that have surpassed the coveted 100-episode mark (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Are We There Yet?” and “Everybody Hates Chris”), a back-to-back-to-back fete that is extremely rare in Hollywood. The diversity of Crews’ film career is a perfect example of the complexity and range of his ability as an actor – from starring as the hilarious Latrell Spencer in White Chicks to the scary President Camacho in Idiocracy to action hero Hale Caesar in The Expendables franchise. Crews has also notably been folded into Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions family, appearing in six of his films (“Sandy Wexler,” “The Ridiculous 6”, “Blended,” “Click,” “The Benchwarmers” and “The Longest Yard”). Crews most recently starred in the critically acclaimed Boots Riley film “Sorry To Bother You” opposite Lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson and in the blockbuster film “Deadpool 2”. Next up, Crews is set to star in the Paramount animated feature film “Rumble,” slated for a February 18, 2022 theatrical release.
Behind the brawn, bullets, and laughs is a renaissance man from Flint, Michigan who, as a teen, got his first big break after high school with an art scholarship at the prestigious Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan. This was followed by an Art Excellence scholarship and a full-ride athletic scholarship for football at Western Michigan University, where, as a star defense end, he helped lead the Broncos to a Mid-Atlantic Conference Championship in 1988. After several years in the NFL (where he painted portraits of teammates to supplement his income) with the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers, Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles, Crews turned his talents to the performing arts, where his talent, hard work, character, and dedication has made him one of the most sought out and respected talents in the industry.
A true definition of success, Crews’ life off-screen is as exciting and dynamic as his public persona. Crews dedicates his free time to keeping physically fit — both in mind and body while also working with several non-profit organizations including Safe Horizon, Peace Over Violence and the Polaris Project. For his dedication in helping these organizations, he was awarded the UN Global Generation Award at the UN headquarters and continues to be honored by numerous organizations for his tireless advocacy in helping to combat sexual harassment and abuse, domestic violence and human trafficking.
