 Terry Crews Biography

Terry Crews is an actor and former NFL player. He is perhaps best known for playing Julius on the UPN/CW sitcom "Everybody Hates Chris" and for his appearances in Old Spice commercials, as well as for roles in films like Friday After Next, White Chicks, Idiocracy, Gamer, and The Expendables. He starred as Nick Kingston-Persons in the TBS sitcom "Are We There Yet?" and as himself in the BET reality series "The Family Crews." His most recent role is in the series "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," a single-camera ensemble comedy about what happens when a detective who doesn't take anything seriously gets a new boss who wants him to grow up and respect the badge.

Crews was born in Flint, Michigan, the son of Terry Crews, Sr. and Patricia Crews. Crews grew up in a rather strict Christian household where the rearing of the children was mainly held down by his mother. He attended The Flint Academy and earned an Art Excellence Scholarship to attend the Interlochen Center for the Arts and then Western Michigan University. While completing his studies as an Art major, Crews was a key member of the WMU football team, where he earned all-conference honors as a defensive end. Crews was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams of the NFL in the 11th round of the 1991 NFL Draft. He carved out a career spanning seven years, including stints with the Rams, San Diego Chargers, the Washington Redskins, and the Philadelphia Eagles.

After retiring from the NFL in 1997, Crews pursued an acting career and took a stint as T-Money on Battle Dome (modeled after American Gladiators). He played Damon Pearly in Friday After Next, starring Ice Cube and Mike Epps. He has also done commercials with Nike and Old Spice. He starred in the sitcom Everybody Hates Chris as Julius Rock, and his more modern movie appearances were alongside Adam Sandler in The Longest Yard, Click, and The Benchwarmers (as well as the long-delayed Mike Judge film Idiocracy, where Crews played President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho).

Crews has made many cameo appearances in Jamie Kennedy's Rollin' with Saget as the security guard, and in films such as Training Day, Soul Plane and Bridesmaids.

He has been featured in several Old Spice TV commercials for their "Odor Blocker Body Wash," their body sprays, as well as their shaving lotion.

In the sitcom "Are We There Yet?," Crews had a lead role as Nick Kingston-Persons. In the series' first trailer, Ice Cube said that Crews is the perfect person to replace him as Nick and that his physical comedy is undeniable. The series was picked up for 90 new episodes by August 2010, while Crews enjoyed box office success in three movies in August 2010 (Middle Men, The Expendables, Lottery Ticket).

In 2012, it was announced that he would be joining the cast of the Aaron Sorkin-helmed drama The Newsroom. He portrayed the bodyguard and life coach of Will McAvoy, the show's protagonist.

In 2014, Crews released his autobiography, "Manhood: How to Be a Better Man or Just Live with One." In the book, Crews detailed his long-standing pornography addiction, which had seriously affected his marriage and his life, but which he overcame around 2009 and 2010 after entering rehabilitation. Since then he has taken an active role in speaking out about the condition and its impact.

Terry was a contestant in the NBC celebrity reality competition series "Stars Earn Stripes." He appeared in Scary Movie 5 and in the superhero film Deadpool 2.

Crews, a public advocate for women's rights and activist against sexism, has shared stories of the abuse his family endured at the hands of his violent father. He was included among the group of people named as Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2017 for going public with stories of sexual assault.

In 2019, Crews hosted "America's Got Talent."
