Former NFL player Terry Crews has had a brilliant acting career. He starred as Chris Rock’s father in the sitcom Everybody Hates Chris and currently plays NYPD Sergeant Terry Jeffords on the hilarious Fox sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which has been renewed for a second season and will premiere on September 28.
Now Crews will pick up where Cedric the Entertainer left off as host of the television quiz show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. Contestants answer trivia questions in the hope of winning the grand prize, $1,000,000. The show has won seven Daytime Emmy Awards and TV Guide ranks it #6 in its list of the 60 greatest game shows ever. Maybe Crews will get an Emmy yet.
