ABOUT 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 starred on the NBC Golden Globe Award-winning hit series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, hosts NBC’s top-rated alternative series America’s Got Talent, and spin offs AGT Champions, and AGT Extreme, and stars in the Netflix animated film The Willoughby’s.
Crews is also the face (and muscles) of Old Spice, a playable character in Microsoft’s Xbox One game Crackdown 3, and a force in the design and art world where his high-end furniture collection, in partnership with iconic Bernhardt Designs, has been picking up awards across the country.
Crews was also named one of TIME Magazine’s 2017 “Person of the Year” as one of the “Silence Breakers,” speaking out against sexual harassment following the #MeToo movement that has taken the world by storm. Crews’ no-holds-barred approach to work has made him a force to be reckoned with as his career continues to evolve. Crews has also been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
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 including 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 his 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. Most recently Crews stars in the Paramount animated feature film Rumble.
Crews recently added yet another title, children’s book illustrator, for his first-of-its-kind augmented reality book, Come Find Me, which is now available for purchase online at ComeFindMeBook.com. Over 20-years ago, seeing a void of books for brown boys in the marketplace and holding strong the belief that ‘you cannot be what you cannot see,’ Terry and his then-teammate, Washington Redskins defensive end Ken Harvey, developed a book about two brothers, Marcus & Anthony (also the names of Ken’s sons, who the book is dedicated to) playing an imaginative game of hide-and-seek while becoming pilots, conductors, captains and race car drivers.
