Early life

Terry Alan Crews was born on July 30, 1968[2] in Flint, Michigan, the son of Patricia and Terry Crews, Sr.[3] He grew up in a strict Christian household in Flint and was raised mainly by his mother. His father was an alcoholic who was abusive.[4][1]


After earning his high school diploma from Flint Southwestern, he received a Chrysler-sponsored art scholarship at the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Interlochen, Michigan, which was followed by an Art Excellence scholarship and a full athletic scholarship for football at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. As a defensive end for the WMU Broncos, Crews earned All-Conference honors and won the 1988 Mid-American Conference Championship.[5]

Crews was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the 11th round of the 1991 NFL Draft.[6] His career included stints with the Rams, the San Diego Chargers, the Washington Redskins, and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Acting career

After retiring from the NFL in 1997, Crews moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. He had held a long-standing ambition to work in the film industry, but up until then had no plans to pursue acting, simply wanting to be involved in some way. A year earlier, he had co-written and co-produced the independent feature film Young Boys Incorporated. A self-funded production filmed in Detroit with an anti-drug message, the film drew on his own observations, as well as those of his friends and family. Despite describing it as a "horrible" film, he credits the experience with getting him interested in the industry.[7]

In 1999, Crews auditioned for a role as a character athlete (known as Warriors) in the syndicated game show Battle Dome, which became his first acting part. He played T-Money for two seasons until its cancellation in 2001. The audition process and the opportunity to perform in front of an audience made him realize that he wanted to pursue acting as a career. However, he failed to land another acting job for the following two years.[8]

Appearances in commercials, films, and music videos soon followed.[7] His breakout role came in Friday After Next starring Ice Cube, for whom Crews had previously worked as an on-set bodyguard.[9][10] Having never taken acting classes, instead he asked himself what the audience wanted, and he believes this ultimately brought him success. He now believes acting is what he was born to do and would not wish to have any other career, despite the physically demanding nature of the work.[7]

Based on his performance in White Chicks (2004), Adam Sandler changed a role in The Longest Yard (2005) to give it to Crews, who had auditioned for another part in the film.[7] His role as Julius Rock, the father on the UPN/CW sitcom on Everybody Hates Chris, brought Crews wider public recognition, and the show aired for four seasons from 2005 until 2009.[10] Since Everybody Hates Chris, Crews has had main roles as husband and father Nick Kingston-Persons in the TBS sitcom Are We There Yet?, which aired for three seasons from 2010 to 2013, and as NYPD Sergeant Terry Jeffords in the ensemble cast of the Fox sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which premiered in 2013[11] and ran for five seasons before it was picked up for a sixth season by NBC in 2018.[12]

Crews has appeared mainly in comedic roles, such as President Camacho in Idiocracy, but he later found success in action roles beginning with his part as Hale Caesar in The Expendables series, which saw him make his first appearance in a film sequel. Although he has managed to sustain an athletic physique in his career as an actor, Crews has avoided being type-cast as a muscle bound action hero, and has attained critical success through exploiting the contrast of his elaborate character comedy with his physique, which extends to the point of even mocking the stereotype of the gym obsessed body builder. This contrast has also led to sustained work as part of various humorous Old Spice TV commercials.[9][13][14]

Crews has lent his voice to animations such as American Dad! and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. Crews found he enjoyed the work and sought out more of it, finding satisfaction in how it carries his spirit into the animation.[10] In 2010 to 2011, Crews starred in his own reality series on BET, The Family Crews, about his everyday life with his family. It ran for two seasons. From 2014 to 2015, he hosted the syndicated game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. He has also starred as an American host for the 2017 Netflix original show Ultimate Beastmaster.

Crews cites the many similarities between acting and professional football, including the structure and expectations, as helping his transition between the two careers. He credits Reginald Hubbard with mentoring him in his early career in the film business.[7]

In June 2017, Crews was cast in the science fiction comedy film Sorry to Bother You.[15] The film was released in theaters on July 6, 2018.[16] Also in 2018, he appeared as Bedlam in the superhero film Deadpool 2.[17]

Other work Illustration and portraiture

Crews considers his first job in the entertainment industry to be a stint as a courtroom sketch artist in Flint, Michigan.[18] He later performed the role for the local station, WJRT.[19] During his football career, Crews supplemented his income by producing portraits of fellow players, and in some cases this was his primary income stream on which he depended to feed his family, typically earning $5,000 for a two-month commission. His work included a series of NFL-licensed lithographs.[7] He believes his imaginative side has transferred itself to his acting work.[7]


Crews is a co-founder of design company Amen&Amen, with fashion designer Nana Boateng.[20] Their first collection was a set of furniture and light fixtures designed by Ini Archibong.[21]

Personal life

In 2014, Crews released his autobiography, Manhood: How to Be a Better Man or Just Live with One.[22] In the book, Crews made public details of his long-standing pornography addiction, which he related had seriously affected his marriage and his life, and which he was only able to overcome around 2009 and 2010 after entering rehabilitation; he now takes an active role in speaking out about the condition and its impact.[23][24][25]

On October 10, 2017, in the wake of numerous Hollywood actresses going public with their stories of sexual harassment and assault by film producer Harvey Weinstein, Crews revealed that a Hollywood executive had groped him at a party in 2016 and that he did not publicize the incident for fear of retaliation.[26][27] It was later revealed that the "high-level executive" was Adam Venit, head of the motion picture department of the talent company William Morris Endeavor (WME).[28]

For his part in coming forward with the sexual assault allegations, Crews was named as one of the "Silence Breakers" from the Time Person of the Year award in 2017.[29] When WME reportedly concluded from investigation that the incident was an isolated one, Venit returned to work after a one-month suspension, but was demoted from his position. In response, Crews stated, "Someone got a pass".[30] Crews has filed a lawsuit against Venit and WME for sexual assault.[31] WME responded to the lawsuit, arguing that Crews' claims were "both swift and serious" after having formally apologized, and showing willingness to let go of the incident.[32] In March 2018, prosecutors decided not to file any charges against Venit. The city attorney’s office claimed that the statute of limitations for them to prosecute Venit had expired as the incident was in February 2016 and Crews had decided not to report the incident until November 2017.[33]

Crews is married and has five children and one grandchild.[34] He is a devout Christian.[35][36]

Manhood: How to Be a Better Man-or Just Live with One
Manhood: How to Be a Better Man-or Just Live with One
From NFL player turned film and TV star Terry Crews comes a wise and warmhearted memoir chronicling his lifelong quest to become a good man, loving husband, and responsible father.   What does it mean to be a man? Terry Crews, TV’s iconic “Old Spice Guy” and co-star of the hit Golden Globe Award–winning series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, has spent decades seeking the answer to that question. In Manhood, he shares what he’s learned, telling the amazing story of his rise to fame and offering straight-talking advice for men and the women who love them.  A self-described “super-driven superstar alpha male,” Terry Crews embodies the manly ideal for millions worldwide. But as he looks back on his difficult childhood and shares hard-learned lessons from the many humbling experiences he endured to get where he is today, he shows how his own conception of manhood is constantly evolving.   Crews offers up a lively, clear-eyed account of the ups and downs of his twenty-five-year marriage, revealing the relationship secrets that have kept it going—and the one dark secret that nearly tore it apart. Along the way, he shares his evolving appreciation for looking good, staying fit, and getting it done for the people you love.   Being a man is about more than keeping your core strong. It’s about keeping your core values stronger. With insightful observations on spirituality, work, and family, Terry Crews shows men how to face their inner demons, seek forgiveness from those they’ve wronged, and tear down the walls that prevent them from forging meaningful relationships with others.   From the NFL gridiron to the Hollywood backlot, Terry Crews has survived it all with his sense of humor—and his marriage—intact. In Manhood he shows men everywhere that real strength is not measured in muscle mass—unless that muscle is the heart.

Your Brain on Porn: Internet Pornography and the Emerging Science of Addiction
Your Brain on Porn: Internet Pornography and the Emerging Science of Addiction
"This is the most considered, thorough and accurate account of internet porn addiction that exists at the time of writing." Professor Anthony Jack, from the foreword.When high speed internet became widely available a few years ago, growing numbers of people began to worry that their porn use was running out of control. Far from preparing them for fulfilling relationships, viewing an endless stream of porn videos led to unexpected symptoms. Perhaps most surprisingly, for the first time in history erectile dysfunction was becoming a significant problem for young men. This led to one of the largest informal experiments in the history of science. Tens of thousands of people have tried abstaining from sexually stimulating material in a process they call ‘rebooting’. Many of them reported startling changes, from improved concentration and elevated mood to a greater capacity for real-life intimacy.Gary Wilson has listened to the stories of those who have tried giving up internet porn and related them to an account of how the reward system of the brain interacts with its environment. And now a growing body of research in neuroscience is confirming what these pioneers have discovered for themselves - internet pornography can be seriously addictive and damaging.In Your Brain on Porn Wilson provides a concise introduction to the phenomenon of internet porn addiction that draws on both first-person accounts and the findings of cognitive neuroscience. In a voice that is generous and humane, he also offers advice for those who want to stop using internet pornography.The publication of Your Brain on Porn is a landmark in our attempts to understand, and remain balanced in, a world where addiction is big business.Gary Wilson is the presenter of the popular TEDx talk ‘The Great Porn Experiment’ and hosts the website ‘Your Brain On Porn’, which was created for those seeking to understand and reverse compulsive porn. He taught anatomy and physiology for years and has long been interested in the neurochemistry of addiction, mating and bonding.Anthony Jack is Professor of Philosophy, Psychology, Neurology and Neuroscience and Research Director of the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence at Case Western Reserve University."In Your Brain on Porn Gary Wilson sets out to explain how abundant free pornography is causing serious problems for thousands of, mostly young, people. As well as providing a survey of the science of addiction for general readers, Your Brain on Porn gives guidance on how to break out of addictive porn use. Porn addiction is an important phenomenon and in Your Brain on Porn Wilson gives us valuable resources for understanding and addressing it." Dr Nicole Oei PhD, Addiction, Development and Psychopathology (Adapt) Lab, Department of Psychology, University of Amsterdam"In this important book, Gary Wilson correctly identifies the obsession with pornography as a fetish - using an inanimate object for sexual arousal/gratification - and discusses the biopsychosocial consequences that often result from compulsive use of pornography for sexual arousal. The book describes many examples of the "rebooting" process that is necessary for sexual functioning to heal. He also explains the changes in brain physiology when sexual addiction hijacks normal sexual behavior - including why recovery takes time." Reid Finlayson, MD, Medical Director, Vanderbilt Comprehensive Assessment Program, Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry"As is the case so often with new phenomena, science lags behind lived experience. Gary Wilson brings the two together powerfully as he explores the addiction that dare not speak its name. This book crackles with energy, urgency and humour. It offers up the hope of recovery to those struggling with internet porn addiction and it does so with compassion and informed authority." Dr David McCartney, Primary Care Addiction Specialist
